lyrics

Moonbeams shine on the riverbed
As children lay down their sleepy heads
Dew drops form on the flowers, silver droplets
As lovers hesitate by the garden and share their first kiss
Can't we have another night like this

Across the sky, a rainbow's brilliant colours
I watch the children play, splashing in the water
The flowers drink the life that Mother Nature sent them
As we held each other tight, it all seemed like Heaven
Can't we have another day to be
The beautiful something, that once was you and me

Cuz now the rain, just fills the river of broken promise
Flowing to a sea of heartache and of pain
Now the sun, instead of bringing the wonder of a new day
Just proves to me that I'm alone, and I'll never see you again

Well once, life was carefree. But then, I woke up again
To the same, re-occurring dream, can't chase the memories
God please get me out of here

Time. Time they say. Has a way, to turn things around
But time, won't heal the pain
That I felt, on my way down

Cuz now the rain, just fills the river of broken promise
Flowing to a sea of heartache and of pain
Now the sun, instead of bringing the wonder of a new day
Just proves to me that I'm alone, and I'll never see you again

Well I got up and left it all behind, trying to forget the life I lead
But everywhere I go and everything I see, can't escape the thoughts in my head

The river's dry now, mud cracks on the bottom
The children have moved away, they've almost all forgotten
The flowers that years ago were turned into a highway
I hope you're doing well, seems nothing's going my way
And we'll never again have the chance to be
Running together, young, in love and free

Cuz now the rain, just fills the river of broken promise
Flowing to a sea of heartache and of pain
Now the sun, instead of bringing the wonder of a new day
Just proves to me that I'm alone, proves to me that I'm alone
Just proves to me that I'm alone, and I'll never see you again
