I recall that time five years ago
When you captured me and stole the show
Your shy blue eyes captivated me
And made me think that we were to be
The best of friends
But, after two years, what happened to us?
Oh, so quietly, you made a fuss
The hazel-eyed boy I used to know
Captivated you and stole the show
To my disdain
Of course, as fits of blind passion do
He wasn't very good to you
Yet, as my tears flooded our room
And, by sorry, I had been consumed
You kissed the boy
I sometimes wonder how you're doing now
Did you find true love again somehow?
Is the hazel-eyed boy still in your life?
Do you kiss his dry lips every night?
I want to know
No matter what has happened to you
I can't help but miss the girl I knew
The shy girl with the soprano voice
Who made my soul feel truly rejoiced
Where did you go?
I suppose good things must come to an end
And so, I will say good night, my friend
I'll place a rose on your grave one day
The grave of the girl who swept me away
