Cold Burn

 
In retrospect many love songs tend to have a different meaning
Only after some time has passed
I guess the older we get we wake up from the dreaming
As if awakening from a spell once cast

Years later we begin to understand ourselves a little better
Seeing where and how things went wrong
Comprehending the significance of each poem, text or letter
Realizing why we were so headstrong

Oh how the days of eternal youth flew by like the blink of an eye
When relationships were beat and broken
In the cold burn we learn to deal and heal and to detoxify
Recalling words that once were tenderly spoken

In retrospect many love songs tend to have a different connotation
Only after some time has passed
The promises once made cast into the pyre have no lamentation
Only after some time has passed
