I turned the pages of a book

A man once wrote while reminiscing

He talked of love and his lost hope

Of getting back what he was missing

He said the past remains the past

And cannot ever be tomorrow

And what is lost cannot be found

Or be regained or even borrowed
      

He was a man a lot like me

But then again we're all related

We travel through life's ups and downs

Some days we're sad and some elated

So his life story just like mine

Was one long tale of love and passion

And what he learned of what had gone

Was that all fire must burn to ashes
      

And what goes up keeps going up

Till when at last it turns and crashes

And all I've left of all we had

Is this one empty heart full of ashes

Sometimes I've won and then I've lost

I've paid the cost but don't regret it

One thing I know… to fail to try

Is to be sure I'll never get it

I have no fear of losing all

I'll stay the course that holds me faithful

And keep in mind that life's a gift

And as its guest I must be grateful
      

So as we part I'll say goodbye

And wish all you've ever wanted

I lay no blame… I know you tried

The flower died that we both planted

I'll carry on although you've gone

And bear my sadness till it passes

And I'll recall what I have learned

Is that all fire must burn to ashes
      

And what goes up keeps going up

Till when at last it turns and crashes

And all I've left of all we had

Is this one empty heart full of ashes

    
One empty heart full of ashes
