In times long gone

I lost all hope and I made a spell
I threw your love in a wishing well
In times long gone

I watched it sink as I called your name
I held my breath but you never came
In times long gone
In times long gone

In times long gone when your love was born
A word was wrong on a page half-torn
In times long gone on a sweeping wave
I brought your love to my secret cave

I held it close and I watched it bleed
Your wounded love that you didn’t need
In times long gone

It stood no chance but it was so brave
Your drowning love that you didn’t save
In times long gone In
times long gone

In times long gone when your love was born
A word was wrong on a page half-torn
In times long gone on a sweeping wave
I brought your love to my secret cave

A sacred rock had a missing rune
A silent wolf heard a howling moon
I sat all night by a fragile flame
I kept it warm but you never came
you never came

And there it was, just a coin to toss
Your broken love that became my cross
In times long gone

And there I was, out of magic tricks
Without your love that I couldn’t fix
In times long gone
In times long gone

In times long gone when your love was born
A word was wrong on a page half-torn
In times long gone on a sweeping wave
I brought your love to my secret cave
In times long gone
In times long gone
In times long gone
In times long gone


Fugitive words (Brazilian mix)

In my books there are gardens of heartbreak and loss
Where I walk under bridges covered in moss
I would read them to you
but I can’t find the words
To explain what they mean, the books in my world

In my streets you will find no footprints or signs
You can wander for miles, not a soul in sight
I would show you the way
but I can’t find the words
To explain where they lead, the streets in my world

Out of my reach, like scared little birds
Flying away from my strange little world
Got to let them escape, got to leave them unheard
My beautiful fugitive words

In my dreams I’m adrift on a slow, slow tide
I’m alone with the wind and the silence of time
I would tell you the truth
but I can’t find the words
To explain why I feel so alone in my world

Out of my reach, like scared little birds
Flying away from my strange little world
Got to let them escape, got to leave them unheard
My beautiful fugitive words
