City of starlight, fading away.
The wind carries whispers that still tend to stray.
A romance for two, and yet, so cliche.
So passes the night to dawn, to day.

Emotion hidden, the red brick wall.
Stand tall, strong. It can't yet fall.
Seek only the one to give it all,
answer only the sacrificial call.

Eternity cruel would tear them apart,
the end of heaven before it could start.
Invisible blows to a fragile heart,
perfection flawed, the work of art.

Everything has a time limit, nothing is free.
Fate can't change what wasn't mean to be.
I hope you know this, I hope you can see.
You love a lie, that lie is me.
