You were my best friend
My one true and only friend
I hoped you'd stay until the end
But you had to go away

I hardly know where to begin
For among the many shadows on my soul
You will always stand alone
Though our time was just a moment that we stole

A moment together
such a brief fragment of time
I thought it could last forever
Thought you'd be here forever
A scarce grain of beauty
That relieved my endless anguish
But only for a little while

I wake in the morning and
Everything's the same
The world is still revolving
Still playing its unfathomable game
To those who say they know the answers
I say they know nothing at all
