Did you look into my eyes and know
That one day you would go away?

It started off
As something from a fairy tale
But then one night it all changed.

Making a little crack every time.
As soon it would get a little better,
Something would turn up to take it back.

Before I had lost me.

It was great while it lasted.

But with only the good memories.
The bad are all gone.
