It Started With a Song

The Dusts of Time

It started with a song
But it’s been so long
After you nothing’s the same

The cracks in our love spoke loud
Drowning out the sweetest of sounds
And when your memory weighs heavy
I call for you in the night

I knew I wanted to be with you
When the DJ played that song
Dancing through the night
Holding hands in morning light

I found the words to make you mine
Shaking off the dusts of time

It started with a song
But it’s been so long
Together we were strong
It started with a song

Sitting in the rain holding back the pain
Light grows dim with the rising dawn
You were the reason for me to hold on
Then you left me and now long gone

It started with a song
But it’s been so long
Together we were strong
It started with a song
It started with a song
