Don't Say

Don't say you don't remember
All your talk of sweet surrender
Everyday has been a bad day since.

All the things you left become bereft:
Clothes and jewels you could have kept
Linger here to tell me that you've gone.

Think back; think back
To the point of meeting
Look back; look back
At the moment of joining
Something bigger than yourself
Where amongst it all
Did this sad ship lose its sails
And bearing?

People tell me things will change
The sun will come, be bright again
Lifting shadows from the heart

But what I feel in every room
That hopeful sense - she'll be back soon
Fades with the flowers and the news

Think back; think back
To the point of meeting
Look back; look back
At the moment of joining
Something bigger than yourself
Where amongst it all
Did this sad ship lose its sails
And bearing?

Please......

Don't say you don't remember
All your talk of sweet surrender
Every day has been a bad day
Every day has been a bad day
Every day has been a bad day since.
