When five years ago, we had met on the town,
I found myself dreaming of chasing you down
In that playful young moment, lost in the dream,
Like it suddenly happened like light from a beam.
When I hugged you so tight, I could feel your hands go,
I could never have thought you would never say no.
The promise you kept was a promise well spent,
But I promise my heart is not a tree so bent.
When you held out your hand, I took it to hold,
And I felt like I was more value than gold,
But now it seems my heart beats its last every day,
But never say no to a day left in May.
I never said no to a golden sunset,
I never said no to a gambling bet
That people are having that we will not last,
But I’ll never say no to what we had let pass.
Today, I would feel better if I was joyous
Celebrating with friends
A day that I would think brings love and cherished treasures
A life that seemingly never ends.
But alas, that party will never come my way
Because I don’t get it, it’s just me.
Perhaps it’s the air I breathe, the clothes I wear,
Or perhaps it is the load I bear.
This is what I have to deal with every day,
But I swear I want to feel your heart glow
When you see me, so I promise I’ll never say no.
