about

"I hold you close, I hold a memory and time just fades to grey. A silver light, a candle burning bright and grief that tears betray" begins a poignant love song filled with imagery of fire, photographs, and loss. It is pretty clear there is no happy ending here.

lyrics

Lyrics

I HOLD YOU CLOSE, I HOLD A MEMORY,
AND TIME JUST FADES TO GREY.
A PHOTOGRAPH, TATTERED AND TORN,
A PIECE OF YESTERDAY.


LIKE A NIGHT ON A STORMY SEA, I’VE LOST MY WAY,
BURNING BRIGHT AND RUNNING FREE...
LIKE A NIGHT ON A STORMY SEA, I’VE LOST MY WAY,
BURNING BRIGHT AND RUNNING FREE, TO LIVE... ANOTHER DAY.


I HOLD YOU CLOSE, I HOLD A MEMORY,
AND TIME JUST FADES TO GREY.
A SILVER LIGHT, A CANDLE BURNING BRIGHT,
AND GRIEF THAT TEARS BETRAY.


LIKE A NIGHT ON A STORMY SEA, I’VE LOST MY WAY,
BURNING BRIGHT AND RUNNING FREE TO LIVE... ANOTHER DAY.


I HOLD YOU CLOSE, I HOLD A MEMORY,
AND TIME JUST FADES TO GREY.
A PHOTOGRAPH, TATTERED AND TORN,
A PIECE OF YESTERDAY.
