“There is a girl I used to know”…

She was the exception…
She broke all your rules…

That tiny fallen angel…
With a tendency to bruise…

Who had unrivalled beauty…
With the brains to match…

You should have stayed away…
Should have only watched…

Keeping a safe distance…
Instead you grew too close…

And in the lingering shadows…
You were hit by Lust’s arrows…

As her smile lit up the darkness…
And her eyes just hypnotised…

You fell hook, line and sinker…
Bought into Lust’s sweet lies…

She cast a spell upon you…
Made you think it was all true…

And you fell so fucking deeply…
Into an ocean of neon blue…

That felt so warm and safe…
Where mermaids swam silently…

Your heart was bound and captured…
Your eyes too blind to see…

Becoming locked in limbo…
In between the dark and light…

A place you couldn’t escape from…
And it haunted you at night…

Where it all seemed so perfect…
And the beast was not a fool…

Where there was no need…
To act so fucking cool…

Like a poor man’s James Dean…
A rebel without a cause…

You ignored the true reality…
Overlooked all of your flaws…

And it always ends the same…
But even though it’s far behind…

Those moments that you shared…
Still weigh heavy on your mind…

“Does anyone have a number here, for letting go”…

Speeding through the water…
Cutting like a knife…

Leaving behind all troubles…
The memories and the strife…

And constant little reminders…
Of the dark path of regret…

Whilst dancing with distraction…
That’s been so hard to forget…

To an island lost in time…
Where no one knows your face…

Surrounded by total strangers…
Living life at a slower pace…

Who take you as they find you…
No trace of your history…

Where any mistakes made…
Remain a total mystery…

Out of sight, out of mind…
A chance to lock the box…

Focus on the here and now…
Allow the past to be lost…

Wiped from your memory…
Like some bad. bad dream…

That interrupts your sleep…
Making you silently scream…

Wishing it never happened…
Knowing you can’t be cleansed…

As all the deep dark secrets…
Became sins that simply stained…

The inside of your mind…
And deep within your soul…

Etched inside your spirit…
A sadness you can’t console…

But on this tiny island…
There is a chance to heal…

Pretend it never happened…
Remember how to feel…

Be reminded what it was…
To carry pure innocence…

A feeling so very powerful…
A feeling so damn intense…

She does not speak,
like she used to do…

Her words don’t flow,
or now ring true…

Just a hollow feeling,
when they are heard…

Soulless and wooden,
not like the birds…

Who sing out aloud,
whenever she is near…

Filled with beauty,
not dread and fear…

Which is how she feels,
each and every day…

Since she lost his love and
he pushed her away…

In the midst of a storm,
raging with pure emotion…

Like the perfect kind,
found out on the ocean…

The push and pull,
the hurt and the hate…

Ripped them apart,
it was driven by fate…

Down the dark road,
of no possible return…

Hearts split in two,
as the searing pain burned…

Creating deep scars,
that will never heal…

It’s part of the process,
It’s part of the deal…

That’s left her stood,
all alone in this world…

As the days slowly pass and
her memories swirl…

Now day to day living,
is filled with regret…

But times they shared,
she’ll never forget…

“As I try to find the will to forget her somehow”…

He has to stop this madness…
And he has to stop it now…
It’s driving him to insanity…
Yet he does not know how…
All these crazy visions…
Running through his head…
He wants her so fucking bad…
The words must remain unsaid…

He knows what he wants…
But not sure how to get…
So he’s chasing shadows…
It will all end with regret…
And feeling like Gene Wilder…
Stood high upon the ledge…
Looking down upon his life…
After chasing his woman in Red…

He knows all the outcomes…
The damage it would cause…
Pure souls lost forever…
Closing all the open doors…
So he has to break the cycle…
This habit that has formed…
But he is so very weak…
Even when forewarned…

Because he’s seen it all before…
And it never turns out right…
Caught up in the moment…
And people ruining their lives…
By chasing stolen moments…
And feasting on forbidden fruit…
It never ends the way it should…
And the sorrow is so acute…

The memories get forgotten…
And the passion quickly dies…
She’d never speak to him again…
Or ever look him in the eyes…
Yet stood in life’s casino…
There always is a chance…
Could he defy all the odds…
Could it occur by happenstance…

So he finds himself conflicted…
But he knows what he must do…
Try to bury all these feelings…
And begin his life anew…
Because this really is madness…
And he dare not confess now…
Though it’s driving him insane…
He has to forget her somehow…
