Love slips away and we move on
Night becomes the dawn

Words tear us up just like a storm
Now love is gone leaving us strangers

The morning sky fills with rain
Nothing feels the same

Time leaves me remembering dreams
And places we've been
And how it all changes

Once when you were mine
We lived within a world all our own
Once when you were mine
Once there was a time

Love slips away and we move on
