Skyline

Folder: 
Remnants

I can see you in the skyline
While I'm screaming
While I'm pleading
I can see you in my mind's eye
While I'm reeling
From this feeling


I still see you in my dreams
But I don't know why
I still feel you close to me
As I stare into the sky


Even after all these years, you're still the one that gets to me
But it's not hate, and it's not love, and it's not pain, you see
No, the reason you're still on my mind
Is that I never got to say goodbye
And for reasons that I can't contrive
Can't seem to let your mem'ry die


I still see you in my dreams
But I don't know why
I still feel you close to me
As I stare into the sky
I still see you in my mind's eye
I still see you in the skyline


I never thought we'd be together
But I never thought you'd leave
I never counted on forever
But I always thought we'd be
Somewhere painted in a picture
Somewhere written in a song
We may not have been in love
But I never thought that you'd be gone


I still see you in my dreams
But I don't know why
I still feel you close to me
As I stare into the sky
I still see you in my mind's eye
I still see you in the skyline


I never got a chance to say
I'll miss you while you're away
I never thought I'd live this life
Without a chance to see you smile
For so long I've held this feeling
Without knowing its true meaning
For so long I've chased the shadows
Branching far out from the shallows
But I know why I thought of you last night
Because we never got the chance, no
We never got the chance
To say goodbye


I still see you in my dreams
But I don't know why
I still feel you close to me
As I stare into the sky
I still see you in my mind's eye
I still see you in the skyline


I still see you in my dreams
Still haunted by your memory
I still feel you close to me
As I stare into the sky


I still see you in between
Where we were and where I'll be
I still see you in my dreams
Now I guess that I know why
I still see you in my mind's eye
I still see you in the skyline

Loss sucks...but it's less about the losing, than it is about the missing pieces and the emptiness they leave behind

nicely done

Once you have a connection with someone, that never really goes away. You just learn to make room for more in your life. 

 

Beautiful song though, I very much enjoyed. 


Peace and Love,

Truer words

The memories will always be there, even when they are not at the forefront, there can always be a trigger.
Thank you, I'm happy that you liked it. :)

I was thinking

Sad violin, but a nice clarinet ensemble would go well. Maybe an oboe or two for depth.
Glad everyone enjoyed it. I was driving to work last night and I saw an old familiar face in the clouds. The preceding is what ensued.
