You were my love for awhile
my secret love for awhile
still in my heart I hold you near
All that I wanted was forevermore
Something that could not be, my Paramour...

And now we go our separate ways
Time heals all wounds,
or so they say,
Yet here I am still wondering why
All that I wanted was
something that could not be,
my Paramour...
