Lyrics

True love lost - who can count the cost?
It’s a price no one could pay.
So fine & rare is the beauty there
It’ll take your breath away.

There are moments, tucked away
Like petals in the pages…
When stumbled on, you’ll dwell upon
The remnants of their fragrance

Like a cover of clouds in the midnight sky,
Backlit by the moon,
Just drift on by as dawn arrives…
And charcoal gray gives way to
Cobalt Blue

A phantom flies into the mind’s eye –
Through the reverie it takes us.
And it’s all good; and all the edges smooth…
As if the past were painless.

Now I’m old enough to “remember when”
And I’m still young enough to dream.
But I know aspirations can often outlast
My motivation & my ability.

Like a cover of clouds in the midnight sky,
Backlit by the moon,
Just drift on by as dawn arrives…
And charcoal gray gives way to
Cobalt Blue

Hard to say, harder to know
Where it all comes from, where it all goes.
You have to step back so lessons are learned…
But look past the point and it’s bound to burn.

Like a cover of clouds in the midnight sky,
Backlit by the moon,
Just drift on by as dawn arrives…
And charcoal gray gives way to
Cobalt Blue
