Rick Imamoto - 27 March 2002

 

we've all been there
when the magic starts to fade
when forgiveness pales
in light of mistakes been made

when the feeling is gone
but we have stayed
when our loved ones fall
to the reaper's blade

when the heart is craving
that certain something once again
and we're feeling trapped
in games no one will win

when the race is over
and we have yet to begin
we face the punishment
without the sin

when blood runs hot
and emotions grow cold
be it rich or poor
young or old

i'm not telling you anything
you don't already know
the hardest part of love
is letting go

let's not sit here
and wonder why
because we gave it
our best try

it's not that i
want to say goodbye
if we did not
life would be a lie

i'm not telling you anything
you don't already know
the hardest part of love
is letting go
