I Still Burn For You
© 2004 by Guy Donges

I don't remember when the walls came crashing in
Except for those I built myself
Something must have changed - it probably was me
Not all asylums are made of stone
Both of us alone
Supposed to feel free
Instead I'm just rearranged
There was everything to live
There was everything to love
We had it, I can't find it
Must be gone....
But I still, I still burn for you.

Green eyes in the night blaze inside my mind
reminding of all that I have lost
No blame to be assigned - pretense is everything
But I wonder how you feel tonight
No relief in sight
No cure to bring
Love, in loss, is surely blind.
There was everything to live
There was everything to love
We had it, I can't find it
Must be gone....
But I still, I still burn for you.

Happy endings aren't for grownups
There's not much you can do
The past becomes a shadow
And the future buys it, too
A maelstrom of emotions
That I'll be seeing through
While I'm still burning for you

There was everything to live
There was everything to love
We had it, I can't find it
Must be gone....
But I still, I still burn for you.
I still burn for you.
I still burn for you.
