vini vidi vici

We had it all at first
The love we shared could never burst

The good the bad, the new the old
The ink in our line was always so bold

The light is extinguished, your fire is gone.
Why have you abandoned it?
It used to be so strong

The tears
The plea
I ask myself why
After waiting for you to change
I know you were living a lie

You used to be my rock
Upon which I would stand

How tall I felt
Those days I looked down on the sand

I wanted our love and desire
To go hand in hand

What have we done?
The sand has risen to my eyes

You are not you
I can see no more sky.

The tears
The plea
What Used To Be

I watched you fade away
My pain became too great
I couldn't take it one more day

Love me
Protect me
Like you used to do
Too much hurt and despair
Has been spent on you
