You’re new. The feelings are the same.
Refined a bit but easy to remember.
I didn’t think they’d come to me again,
But here they are. I sense them, warm and tender.
It’s been a lot. I seemed to have forgotten
That bright internal light that used to shine in me.
The words I wrote, the songs I sang – I got them
Locked in a chest and threw away the key.
Why did I? Well, my love was gone,
The one I loved had chosen other road.
We’re kinda friends but all the deeds are done,
We hardly talk and all I have are loads
Of memories. That’s fine. I never needed more.
I turned the page, I closed the book, and it was over.
Or so I thought. I didn’t want to go there
And recollect the things behind the closed door.
I kept them as they were. They turned to memories themselves.
I watched them from afar and thought, “Now, that’s a funny picture”.
Once vivid, living, vibrant – changed into some empty shells,
Just no more meaningful than useless hollow scriptures.
My life was quiet since. I followed my path
And honestly believed that the forgotten past
Will never be recalled. I learned to gain control
Over my feelings, so my soul was calm and cold.
I watched. I estimated. I evaluated.
My mind assumed control over my heart.
So many things that could have really happened
Were just rejected at the very early start.
Then, I met you. You were so different.
Unlike just any other that I ever saw.
There were stark contrasts and some mysteries,
There was a spark. I wanted to know more.
What I discovered was a pure and lovely soul,
A creature delicate and kind, sincere and open-hearted.
Creative, smart, so trustful, and “alone in the world”,
Emotional and sensible at once. I simply was enchanted.
You have ignited light inside of me,
The same old fire that I used to carry
Within my heart. It’s new and still the way it’s been.
I hope that this time it’s come to stay there.
I still remember how I told you about that.
That moment’s gonna stay with me forever.
Should there happen times when I’ll be feeling sad,
I’ll just recall your smile – the happiest one ever.
I have some hopes in my heart for now.
I have a feeling that we’ll be all right.
Thank you, my dear, that – don’t know how –
You have brought back my glowing lovelight.
