Blackmore's Night – Now And Then lyrics

The past is so familiar
But that's why you couldn't stay
Too many ghosts, too many haunted dreams
Beside you were built to find your own way...

But after all these years, I thought we'd still hold on
But when I reach for you and search your eyes
I see you've already gone...

That's ok
I'll be fine
I've got myself, I'll heal in time
But when you leave just remember what we had...
There's more to life than just you
I may cry but I'll make it through
And I know that the sun will shine again
Though I may think of you now and then...

Can't do a thing with ashes
But throw them to the wind...
Though this heart may be in pieces now
You know I'll build it up again and
I'll come back stronger than I ever did before
Just don't turn around when you walk out that door...

That's ok
I'll be fine
I've got myself, I'll heal in time
And even though our stories at the end
I still may think of you now and then...

    I strongly believe that candice night wrote the lyrics for "now and then" with the intentions of giving the listener a message that may be directed to individuals who have experienced a breakup between them and someone they held close to their heart. That time will close their "wounds" and heal their "pains" so that one day, they're able to move on with their life and work even harder to live a happy life; thinking of that time every "now and then. "
