Foolish Vow

It feels just like yesterday,
when I saw you turn and walk the other way,
somehow you think I?d learn.
But the poetry of silence, pulsed strong through my veins.
Now the only trophy that I hold, is only all my pain.

So now I lay, crying in my dreams.
I do my dance and take my bow.
This pit of pride is getting much too deep,
Yet I hold dear my foolish vow.

It feels just like yesterday,
when I got my turn to feel the pain that I gave,
My god, how deep it burns.
Now there is no one left beside me, and my memories they tell.
Reminding me of my mistakes, that created all this hell.

Well I thought I?d get the chance
To say those meaningful last words,
But I guess that was a fantasy blessed with the absurd.

I thought I?d get a chance
To see my dawn of redeeming grace.
But I guess that will be saved for the one who takes my place.
