One Lover Ago

love is set in stone, it will last forever
that is how na´ve and how sure I was
now I am alone, and, despite endeavour,
I do not believe any more, because ...

I thought the breeze would roll on and could never be cold to me
staying warm for eternity
oh but I didn't see
that the winds like to sweep to and fro
as they find somewhere different to blow
and exactly one lover ago
I believed you loved me

I thought the colours in heaven were bright and could never end
they were my everlasting friend
oh but I didn't see
that the sun can but fade in its glow
as it tires of the same old rainbow
and exactly one lover ago
I believed you loved me

how inexperienced caring and childishly trusting I've been
how immature and simplistic and stupid and gullibly green

I thought that rivers all run from the glistening mountain-top
just one way and they never stop
and they flow constantly
but on reaching the valleys below
waters find somewhere different to flow
and exactly one lover ago
I believed you loved me

I thought the moon and the stars and the sun were forever above
I didn't see the uncertain, ephemeral nature of love

I thought the play I was playing in was an eternal one
the performance would always run
oh but I didn't see
I was simply the fool not to know
there is always an end to the show
and exactly one lover ago
I believed you loved me
