Eternal

You were never my destination

Just a diversion on the way,

Neither had you given it a second thought

Nor had I the courage to say,

To say goodbye a long time ago

But clinging to you was my only hope,

I see you going far far away

Ah shouldn’t have taken my breath away,

Now’s the time to break this bond

For I’ll see you in the beyond…
