Roses you left me
Slowly are fading to gray
Your coat on the chair
And the scent of your hair I miss
The Clock on the wall
It reminds me of all the better times
When we walked in the park
And we whispered in the dark
And we laughed and cried

And I never knew alone,
Wherever you are is home

Without your lips on mine,
No, the sun doesn’t shine
And no, I can’t breathe, I can't breathe
Your words are a symphony
Music that sings to me,
No, I can’t breathe,
I can’t breathe

I walked by the store
And we sat on the floor
And we ate like kids
Then someone said hey
We’re locking the door
No time to play

And I never knew alone,
Wherever you are is home

Without your lips on mine,
No, the sun doesn’t shine
And no, I can’t breathe, I can't breathe
Your words are a symphony
Music that sings to me,
No, I can’t breathe,
I can’t breathe

Without your lips on mine,
No, the sun doesn’t shine
And no, I can’t, no I can’t breathe, yeah
You know I can't breathe

Without your lips on mine,
No, the sun doesn’t shine
And no, I can’t breathe, I can't breathe
Your words are a symphony
Music that sings to me,
No I can’t breathe,
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe

it's not, it's not over
oh you are, you are my lover

Don’t say it’s over
Don’t say it’s over
yeah
ain't not over

    I think it's "the roses you left me"..." and the scent of your hair I miss"..." And we ate like kings"... But thanks for the lirycs.

    I think there is: "the SCENT of your hair", "all the BETTER TIMES", "NO the sun doesn't shine". And I hope there is something else, too: "And we ate like kissed", but I'm not sure what.
