We Had our Time

Disconnected as expected
Why would you be different?
Miles and styles and after a whiles
All result in discontent

We had our time my love
Now I must be going
And growing and knowing
That this too must end

The die was cast, it couldn’t last
Not without some sacrament
But we spilled the wine, questioned the divine
And now all that’s left is to repent

We had our time my love…

I felt his hand slip away form mine
Wasn’t a sign
Only time to go

We can’t look back at what we lacked
Or at how our story might have been
Regret is stark, shades grey to dark
And the only light burns within
I said the only light burns within
I said the only light burns

We had our time my love…
