I Don’t Want You To Forget

5 Nov

The touch of lips the close of eyes
They matter more than you surmise
I hide it all in secret boxes
Until tomorrow when we first meet

I watch you fade before my eyes
I can’t take it, but I won’t look away
Maybe the fires that feel so cold,
They won’t completely die away

I don’t want to, I don’t want you
I don’t want you to forget
I don’t want to, I don’t want you
I don’t want you to forget

I may not let you see my pain
I may not speak hard words in anger
To you maybe it isn’t really strange
You being loved by a stranger

I won’t give you up just yet
I will come calling at your door
Ours is a home we can’t get to anymore

I don’t want to, I don’t want you
I don’t want you to forget
I don’t want to, I don’t want you
I don’t want you to forget

Behind your eyes there is a distance
I ask you if you’d like to dance
You mistake me for a healer
I’m just a desperate man stealing one last chance
