The time marches on

It's been years and years and I hear you're still alive.

What would happen to me if I found out you died?

Have you tried to forget me or did it come naturally?

Or do you still remember our short time?

It's been years and years since you faded into night.

Do you still remember how to spell my name right?

Did you know that through the darkness, struggling to survive

that in the darkness I found my light?

Do you care that I forgave you for your helpless fight?

For the words, you didn't say on that fateful night...

It's been years and years since I looked into your eyes,

In all this time I can't forget we never said goodbye.

I can't wait for your heroic return.

If you're touching a twin flame

you're bound to get burned...

All I can do is wish you the best.

I've learned and I learned

What to never expect.

It's been years and years and time marches on

and on and on

and on and on
