Wasted Notes- A Song For My Love

Updated on December 24, 2012

I walked many weary miles before I ever saw your smile

And though it’s you that I adore

The pain within me seems to pour

From wounds inflicted by someone before


My words to her were so sincere; still my voice fell on deaf ears

And now somewhere down the line

Something deep within me died

When all I wanted was to feel alive



They were wasted notes, long ago

Who’d have thought they’d be in vain

What to do with someone new?

I cannot relive the pain


And now my worst fear has come true

The pain I feel is felt by you

I've tried forgetting what I wrote

'Cause I'm regretting every note

But my heart recalls what intellect revokes


They were wasted notes, long ago

Who’d have thought they’d be in vain

What to do with someone new?

I cannot relive the pain


Scourged the first time ‘round, rejected and thrust down

Fooled by young love’s wax and wane

But my soul was renewed, when I caught sight of you

And love won back my heart’s domain


If we want our love to last

We must first accept the past

And you can never be my first kiss

Nothing hurts me more than that

But I would gladly offer you my last

      Bittersweet is right but also very lovely and romantic. Well done. Reminded me of an old song which word were - don't play you rock and roll to me....
