There was a time when I was sure
that you and I were truely one,
that our future was forever
and would never come undone,
and we came so close to be close...
and thought you cared for me
there's distance in your eyes tonight
so we're not meant to be.
The love is gone,
the love is gone,
the sweetest dream
that we had ever known.
The love is gone,
the love is gone,
I wish you well
but I must leave you now alone.
There comes a moment in your life
like a window, and you see
that your future is there before you
and how perfect life would be,
but adventures call with unknown voices
pulling you away...
Be careful or you may regret
the choices you made someday...
When love is gone,
when love is gone,
the sweetest dream
that we had ever known.
When love is gone,
when love is gone,
I wish you well
but I must leave you now alone.
It was almost love,
it was almost always,
it was like a fairytale we'd live out
you and I.
And yes some dreams come true,
and yes some dreams go trough...
and yes the time has come
for us to say goodbye.
Yes some dreams come true,
and yes some dreams go trough...
yes the time has come
for us to say goodbye.
