Love Will Not Forget Us

Location

Where have you come from, my friend?

I'm beginning to fall

Please prove that this is real

Don't doubt that I'm here

I'm staying for awhile

I think I'll stay for awhile

 

I've been standing here, my friend

I've been there all along

Please notice me notice you

Don't believe that I'll disappear

I'm staying for awhile

I think I'll stay for awhile

 

Thank you for staying, but:

If fear came pouring

Like blossoms in the spring

Would you still be standing there for me?

I'd like to hear you again

Please sing for me again

 

Where have I seen you before, my dear?

I'm tripping over my own feet

Please prove that this is real

Don't doubt that I concur

I want to take your hand

Will you accept my hand?

 

I've been resting here, my dear

I've been pining in the shadows

Please notice me notice you

Don't believe that I can lie

I want to take your hand

Will you accept my hand?

 

Thank you for accepting, but:

If pain came crashing

Like a wave on the shore

Would you still be resting there for me?

I'd like to see you again

Please come for me again

 

Where have we yet to meet, my love?

I'm collapsing on my knees

Please prove that you are real

Don't doubt that I need you

We could dance hand in hand

And love would not forget us

 

I've been kneeling here, my love

I've been praying on the side

Please notice me needing you

Don't believe that I cower

We could dance hand in hand

And love would not forget us

 

Thank you my lover, my friend

If love worked slower

Like a clock in reverse

I would still be waiting there for you

My dear I'd like to hold you again

Please stay here with me again
