Passed

Let me look at your picture

One last time without ridicule. 

Let me look at your face

One last time because it’s still beautiful to me. 

And darling you were all I’d ever need

 

But that’s passed and it’s past. 

We’re well past the point of no return.

 

 My loves an ancient relic

Compared to where we stand now. 

All that’s left is a rock pile

On a mountain for the next passer to see. 

All I left behind was a sand castle

To be swallowed up by the ocean;

My hearts being taken out to sea. 

 

Let me hear your voice speak to me. 

Let me hear your laughter

And let my own take wing. 

You made me so happy. 

So happy because you were someone who truly cared about me

 

But that’s passed and it’s past. 

We’re well past the point of no return. 

 

That passion was an ancient battle

Waged well before our time. 

All that’s left is a sword in a field

And a shield by its side. 

All I left behind was a song to be heard

And sung someday;

My love is running away.

 

But that’s passed and it’s past. 

We’re well past the point of no return. 

 

I won’t look back now. 

What’s done is done. 

You’re a different man now,

And better off than some. 

I’d wish you well but it won’t matter

My heart and words make only a soft patter

Against your window while you sleep. 

I’ve run out of rocks to throw

And I’ve run out of energy to weep. 

 

But that’s passed and it’s past. 

We’re well past the point of no return.

Nice verse here. Think you can make this into a good song. And thanks for the catch, John D!
