Come And Gone

By J.R. Mallard
Come And Gone


There’ll be no second chance
For our withered romance
The dimming candlelight
Made it all clear tonight

Though you still say "I love you"
Can’t help feeling lonely and cold
Cause when you say "It’s alright"
The next moment you turn and go
Cause you don’t (no more)
And it’s not (oh no)
Cause we have come and gone

The rose on our table loses one more petal
Like a grim omen for our faltering fable

It all went by
It all went wrong
Our hopes were high
But soon came down
Our feelings died
When doubt was born
We slip and slide
We’ve come and gone

There’ll be no twist of fate
As we’re cleaning the plates
No wishing star in sight
Through the misty moonlight

I tried to say "I love you"
But the words caught in my throat
Wanted to say "I’m alright"
But the tears started to flow
Cause I don’t (no more)
And I’m not (oh no)
Cause we have come and gone

Our vainly set table covered in rose petals
Is like a death bed for the fairytale we told

It all went by
It all went wrong
Our hopes were high
But soon came down
Our feelings died
When doubt was born
We slip and slide
We’ve come and gone

Oh, it all went by
It all went wrong
We hear the chimes
From across town
After tonight
You won’t come home
We kiss goodbye
We’ve come and gone

The sky was too high for our crumbling castle

The last petal
Grimly trembles
