LOVE REMAINS

This is a song about psychological denial. Life changes often require adjustments that we sometimes resist accepting. (Yes, me too)James
LOVE REMAINS

I woke up early this morning
You’re the first thing on my mind
My arm reached out to hold you
As it’s done so many times
Then it hit me like a bullet
Right between the eyes
That you’ve been gone so long now
Though my heart, it still denies
And when love remains fear of the pain
Holds the truth in chains to spare the tears
Only heaven knows what to do with these love remains
And last night I thought I saw you
Just standing by the door
Your face was calm and soothing
To this heart lost in before
Well as memories filled the moment
And your scent did fill the air
My hand reached out to touch you
Then recoiled when you weren’t there
And when love remains fear of the pain
Holds the truth in chains to spare the tears
Only heaven knows what to do with these love remains
I need more time for this heart to see
It’s your ghost still haunting me
Love remains, love remains
I woke up early this morning
You’re the first thing on my mind
