The Battle Was Lost

The Battle Was Lost

It seemed like it would end any day
But three years now looms long
Over my mind, over my song
I don’t have to sing it to you anyway
You already know the words

Forever is long road, paved by emotion
You can’t make it if you’re apart
To say I’ll never love another heart
Is to say I can plant flowers in the ocean
But waves have the will of wild birds

I don’t know what it means to be lonely
It never crossed my mind, only missing you
The battle between us, the love that was true
The winter tide, flickering upon our love coldly
The salt making rust of our candled swords
