a cry towards the absurd

The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.Camus

I go down the street, into the valley,
there to where I had found you once,
and I am not afraid
nor am I optmistic
you've been there once
you knew I loved you
you've gone away

the winds have stopped where I am,
there's only me
the open sky
and my pounding heart
why do I have to know it's always been that way?

I smoke a cigarette while I sit on a stone
and can't help remembering the warmth you gave
the warmth you quickly took away again

I've asked God ... and he took me by the hand
and lead me back to where I once came from
but it's so lonely there
the dreams which made me live those times
have moved on, and disappeared

Why is this life mocking me?
Why does it have to be like this?

I want to loose my burden
but it is my body
I want to loose my fear
but it is my mind

and you don't listen anymore
you never had, you only sang

never can't say goodbye, boy,
you can never say goodbye, boy,
tears come to my face
when I remember how much I loved you
how happy I was when I thought you would come

and all leaves me, even the warmth that comes from crying
when I remember how I felt as I realized you weren't there
there has never been an explanation,
only a kiss, a smile and a song
and the memory of a love that was wrong
