On the memory of
The dance we shared
Beneath the stars above
For a moment
All the world was right
How could I have known
That you'd ever say goodbye?
And now, I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end
The way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I'da had to miss
