A Rose by Any Other Name

Tonight as I lay under the stars
Searching for your face in amongst the constellations
I think about the circumstances of our parting

Once upon a time your name was so perfect
Rolled off my tongue with a certain smoothness
Once upon a time I loved you
And you loved me too

Too long has passed
Too long we’ve been parted
I’ve forgotten the feelings you’ve given me

Tonight as I lay under the stars
I whisper your name
The taste on my lips doesn’t feel quite right

I remember a time when that was the only name I knew
The only name that felt right

I will never know that feeling again
