Young like a kid and wild like a forest i meet him and felt complete for seven hundred thirty days i felt alive and loved.welcomed we wasted time, long talks on the phone,

The heart-wrenching news you tell me nowadays  Is stored in the latched box of my distant mind; it decays Into my deepest and darkest ponders, And upon reminder is where this distraction wanders.

They say that elephants are the only mammals that can die of a broken heart. But what about people? I put on a front by smiling While in fact I was actually dying. No one knew that my heart longed for love.
ya see i dont wanna be deceived in this deceivious world full of lies
This is the story that is more about nothing. More or less the present day Cinderella story where nothing turned into something.
Love was in our verses, Love was never perfect, when the music had played out its like god came and birthed it. Heaven had met earth it had finally scratched the surface, those three years that i spent had really felt like they were worth it.
