Man In Red

Do you remember
All those winter nights
Alone at the crowded bar
Behind the stairs
Stolen kisses
Where no one could see
You pretending
To fall in love with me
I still remember
Sweet little lies
You had come from afar
Just to taunt me
Haunt me in my dreams
Yet I still wish
You’d remember me

Fool Me Once

This is the end
Of the road
The final page
Of a story
That was never meant
To be told
Nor written
In any shape
Or form
Yet here we are
Here I am
Fool me once
Shame on me
Fool me twice
I’m just asking for it
Aren’t I?
How can I
Ever fall for this
How can you
Leave me like this
Yet I am hopeful
Stupid and blind
At the very same time
Is it too late
To delete the last page
Can I still go
Take another road
But what would happen
If you’d fool me
Once again

Forgiveness

Would you forgive me
If I told you
I couldn’t resist
The temptation
The love that people were offering
All around me
While you were gone
Giving me space
Maybe we both misunderstood
What we needed
What we wanted
What we yearned for
But never once dared to express
Now I’m sitting here
All alone
Just wondering
What I had done wrong
If you were ever right
Maybe we both were
In our minds
Just too scared to admit
To scarred to give in
Say what’s really in our hearts
But now I have ruined it
For the both of us
I won’t even ask you to forgive
Simply because I won’t forget
Can I let go now
Will you move on
I guess I already did

Anniversary

I’m here in the city you love most
The city you call your home
You told me you’d take me here someday
That must have been a lifetime ago
But I’m sure you didn’t really care
Yet I think of you quite often
What would our lives be now
If we had taken the chance back then
Would we stay friends
Would we become lovers
Would we be judged by others
Guess we will never know
But I’m happy we get to share these tender moments
They will stay with me forever
Still I hope to see you someday
Maybe in our next life
Our timing will be right this time

Why Do I Still Care

I held you in my hands
Touched your pretty face
Tried to kiss your wrinkles away
Tried to tell you I’m here to stay
But I guess you had other plans
Did I make you forget
Did I make you regret
All the mistakes you made
By simply being there
Was it ever love
Did we want it to be
I see you’re here
I should better leave
Yet I somehow decide to stay
Why do I still care
