A break-up song...

lyrics

Time seems to stand still
I sit alone in silence
Staring through my window
into the night
Seems like white streetlamp light
is turning the rain to snow
I'm a voyeur
Witness to this cycle of seasons in my life
In these moments of quiet loneliness
I find it so hard to accept
that our Love was as fragile as the summer
Crying wouldn't keep our love from dying
anymore than crying could stop this snow from falling.
I'll get myself together. I'll be fine, after the pain.

I remember us, moving in here.
We were sitting on cardboard boxes
and eating take-out chicken
Whatever happened to all those carefree Disney Days ?
In the absence of anything guilty
and not wanting to blame myself... or you,
I resolve that we're victims of circumstance and fate.
Sometimes I think our love was more like
a self consuming falling star.
Flashing bright against the darkest sky
Crying wouldn't keep our love from dying
anymore than crying could stop the stars from falling.
I'll get myself together. I'll be fine, after the pain.

Time seems to stand still.
Sitting here laughing and sucking on a beer
and I got new friends and a new girl
and the car you never liked anyway
Then you and your new man
suddenly appear from out of nowhere.
And my adrenaline surges and emotions just slide out of control.
Now our eyes meet but we turn away.
We find it so hard to ask:
Was our Love really as fragile as that summer ?
Could trying have kept our love from dying ?
Could trying have kept this damn snow from falling ?
The waitress brings another beer I'll be fine...
After the pain

about

Paul Bezooyen Nanaimo, British Columbia

Hi folks,
First and formost I'm a songwriter. I'm a pretty good producer of my own music and am blessed to have other singer / songwriters with whom I collaborate. My joy is creating and recording. I'm not a particularly great performer. That set of skills is a work in progress. At the end of the day - I hope you enjoy my work and that you might consider purchasing and sharing some of it. Cheers ! ... more
