Love's shadows

Love's shadows of remorse are out to haunt me

They take me to a place I shouldn't know

Where the winds of 'It's too late'

Fill the sails of my mistakes

With nights of dire reflection, loss and woe


I walk the empty streets of melancholy

I'm booked in at the Hotel Beau Regret

The desk clerk knows my name

'Sad to see you here again'

'Will it be for just one night or quite a stretch?'


Love’s shadows of despair cast on the ceiling

Past pictures of my life hung on the wall

No matter where I look

There’s an image of your love

How did a guy so lucky lose it all?
