Again with memory failing
Head first into the deep end I dive
Never breaking stride in the race
Against myself
To return to your side
Spectre of destruction still sleeps
Between us
We rest our heads on pillows of doubt
But every time we’re torn asunder
I realize it’s you I can’t live without
Our vows may amount to nothing
But our passion we’ll reignite
If the embers die away
We’ll stoke the coals ‘til they alight
I require neither sustenance nor mercy
Just your smile as my beacon in the dark
Again throughout time never-ending
Against the cruelest fate we join our hearts
