I long for the warmth of days gone by
When you were mine
But now those days are memories in time
Life's empty without you by my side
My heart belongs to you
No matter what I try

When I get the courage up to love somebody new
It always falls apart 'cause they just can't compare to you
Your love won't release me I'm bound under ball and chain
Reminiscing our love as I watch four seasons change

Chorus
In comes the winter breeze that chills the air and drifts the snow
And I imagine kissing you under the mistletoe
When springtime makes it's way here
Lilac blooms reminds me of the scent of your perfume
When summer burns with heat I always get the hots for you
Go skinny dipping in the ocean where we used to do
When autumn sheds the leaves the trees are bare
When you're not here it doesn't feel the same

Remember the nights when we closed our eyes
And vowed that you and I would be in love for all time

Anytime I think about these things I shared with you
I breakdown and cry 'cause I get so emotional
Until you release me I'm bound under ball and chain
Reminiscing our love as I watch four seasons change

Chorus

This loneliness has crushed my heart
Please let me love again
'Cause I need your love to comfort me and ease my pain
Or four seasons will bring the loneliness again

Chorus

Remember the warmth of days gone by...

    Hmmm...My song for my ex gf ..we've been together for 4 years ..but it's been 2 years since we broke up..I can say that I'm already over her..Being bitter with ur ex is non sense coz at the end of the day u can still go on w/o that person ..That's the thing that I really realized as I accept the reality of life..So 4u guys whose still not over with there ex's just focus urself w/ other things that will make u productive enough..It's all about controling ur emotion..Go Guys If I made it!U can also make it!!
