Favorite Verses

Time casts a spell on you but you won’t forget me
I know I could have loved you but you would not let me
I’ll follow you down ’til the sound of my voice will haunt you
You’ll never get away from the sound of the one who loves you

You’re the color of the sky reflecting in each storefront window pane
You’re the whispering and the sighing of my tires in the rain
You’re the hidden cost and the thing that’s lost in everything I do
Yea and I’ll never stop looking for you
Through the sunlight and the shadows and the faces on the avenues

And this is why my eyes are closed, it’s just as well from what I see
And so it goes and so it goes,and so will you soon I suppose
So I would choose to be with you
That’s if the choice were mine to make
But you can make decisions too
So you can have this heart to break
And so it goes and so it goes
And you’re the only one…who knows

And once, I believed that you and I
Were the ones who could defy the fickle Gods
And win out against the odds
And go on forever more

That fall turned to winter, and winter into spring
And all the while you lead me through, a sweet awakening,
But summer never came that year, it’s what you left to find
And you took my future with you, and you left your past behind
It was old College Avenue and in the time of having you
I remember it, as if it were today
The tiny room and the single bed,
Though the tangled trails of time have led us far astray
The membrance seems to stay
And of all the roads that led me on,
And for all the years that you’ve been gone
I have found that it would never go away
It was old College Avenue and in the time of having you
I remember it …as if it were today
I remember you, as if, it was….. Today

If I could read your mind love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel, the kind the drug store sells
When you reach the part where the heart ache comes
The hero would be me
But heroes often fail
And you won’t read that book again
Because the ending’s just too hard to take

Love, I don’t like to see so much pain,
Days pass, and these moments keep slipping away
I get so tired, working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you
To keep me awake and alive

The hours and days still come and go
Time moves on, in ebbs and flows
But it is much colder and darker at night
And days are bleaker,not nearly as bright
My companion now is empty despair
When I reach out, You are not there

Maybe there is a God above
But all I have ever learned from love
Is to shoot somebody who outdrew you
It’s not a cry that you hear at night
It s not someone who has seen the light
It’s a cold and Its a broken … Hallelujah
