Ashes to ashes
And dust to dust
That's what has become
Of our love and trust

Love has no direction
Cause love has no aim
Love can leave you
As fast as she came

Meeting is such sweet sorrow
Cause someday we may have to part
Hush don't you make a sound
You're gonna let me down

Good things come
To those who wait
But good things are gone
From those who are late

All that I am
Is all I can give
But with or without you
My life I must live

Meeting is such sweet sorrow
Cause someday we may have to part
Hush don't you make a sound
You're gonna let me down

Living ain't easy
Since you've been gone
No one else can please me
Or make me feel home

Forgetting ain't easy
You stay on my mind
Thoughts of us haunt me
Can't leave them behind
