We had it all
We were young lovers
We were full of trust and faith
We were dead set on making
It last forever
Forever and a day
I recall it was fall last year
When it started to die

Standing still
As the temperature kills
The summer's thrills
That were keeping it alive
The days got colder
So I held you closer
In effort to save us some time
Almost like the wind came
And ruined the spark
And left us in the dark

But hey,
I could've told you
That I loved you and stayed
Around to kindle the fire
But I was late. on my return
And now you've lost all faith
And I am the liar
I'm no longer what you require

I still feel you at night
Turning in the sheets
When I turn out the light
That's how it goes
The ghost of your first love
Won't ever leave you
Till the day that you die

I won't ever live down
Leaving her behind
Even if the choice was the right one
It was a good thing
Staring me right in the face
But I turned and ran away

Hey,
I could've told you
That I loved you and stayed
Around to kindle the fire
But I was late, on my return
And now you've lost all faith
And I am the liar
I'm no longer what you require

Back then
The days were so much faster
We were young, stubborn
And in love with disaster

You know you can't go back
Even if you try
You better just forget her
Won't you close the door on me
Cause it'll never be the same
It'll never be the way
It was before

Well hey,
I could've told you
That I loved you and stayed
Around to kindle the fire
But I was late, on my return
And now you've lost all faith
And I am the liar

Oh hey,
I would've told you
That I loved you and stayed
Around to kindle the fire
But I was late, on my return
And so you've lost all faith

In the dying light
I'm no longer what you require
I'm no longer what you require
No longer

    Interesting song.. seems to be about one's 1st love who will be forever remembered yet one can't go back.. or a possible 'young love' where everything seemed possible, tho in reality things change over time, so we just have to accept things as they happen and continue on with this journey they call "LIFE".. as hard as it may seem to do, at times.
