I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm
Your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm
Many loved before us, I know we are not new
In city and in forest they loved like me and you

Now it's come to distances, both of us must try
Your eyes filled with sorrow
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye

I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time
Walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme
You know my love goes with you, your love stays with me
It's just the way life changes, like the shoreline of the sea

Let's not talk of love or chains, things we can't untie
Your eyes filled with sorrow
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye

I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm
And your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm
Many loved before us, I know we are not new
And in city and in forest they love like me and you

But now it's come to distances, both of us must try
Your eyes filled with sorrow
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye

I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time
Walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme
You know my heart goes with you, your love stays with me
It's just the way life changes, like the shoreline of the sea

But let's not talk of love or chains, things we can't untie
Your eyes are fill with sorrow
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye

    Love permeates throughout life, we all love and at some point we have to part. Don't be sad - our love will always be, but life changes in many ways and we have to accept that. Take comfort in that each of us will take memories and love of each other with us. Be happy for what we have had. Don't look back, look forward. We'll always be a part of each other and love will go on.

    Its the intelligent way to flow with others whom you grow to love... You leave without chains but with their love in you and your love in them.
