Sweet thoughts drift over the old movie scene
Without understanding what it could mean
With flickerings of something floating by
Seeking answers in the place in-between
Hard reality and a dreamer’s sigh
This black and white story an empty try
A distraction as tears of the past flow
On a lonely night when fantasies fly
Yet crying tears are letting it all go
The fears and doubts the heart should never know
Released on the wind of a winter’s rain
So the soul can feel that beautiful glow.
When a broken heart carries so much pain
Can a lover learn to feel love again?
