Sparrow's Song

Location

You may be gone, gone past all returning,

 But I'll hold you like a candle in my heart.

 

 And I know that this candle will keep burning,

 Until my memories have flown apart.

 

 Must the sparrow's song fall meaningless to you?

 The tighter that I cling the more I lose.

 

 You've forgotten me, now and ever after,

 Your eyes will pass me without recognition.

 

 I forgive you, for your heart like aging plaster,

 Must slowly crumble, fall into remission.

 

 Must the sparrow's song fall meaningless to you?

The tighter that I cling the more I lose.

 

 I will keep loving you 'till the day you die,

 For your life has changed not ended.

 

 Though watching you I cannot help but sigh,

 Wishing that some how you could remember.

 

 Must the sparrow's song fall meaningless to you?

The tighter that I cling, the more I lose.
