Heather

We were young and we were running through the fields of heather

Carelessly lighthearted in the sun

Not thinking about the future we felt immortal

Our life together only just begun

 

But the change of seasons made us different.

There was something in the way you looked at me

I couldn’t deal with the change within you

I just wanted to be free

 

We used to climb the tower to our secret hide out

where we had so many secrets to share

I didn’t understand when you poured your heart out

I ran away into the open air

 

And I pray release us

from this adolescent burden

Make our lives as they used to be

But there is no one to stop the hourglass from turning

Time moves on like you but without me
