Fire of Time




I forgot how to smile as a sober man
I forgot how to laugh as a kid
I forgot what it’s like to hold a woman’s hand and not lead her straight to my bed

I forgot how to kiss and mean it
Every pause, every slip of my tongue
I’ve been loyal to the wants of my lustful heart
And unfaithful to my friend Love

But you remind me who I was and who I want to be
You remind me that though not whole, I’m not empty
There are things I lost in the fire of time
Things I thought, again I’ll never see
But when it’s hard for me to recall my name
You remind me

You’ve been quick to dismiss all my apologies
My confessions seem to only waste your time
I thought grace was in the clouds among the heavenly
But now it’s staring me right in the eyes

You remind me who I was and who I want to be
You remind me that though not whole, I’m not empty
There are things I lost in the fire of time
Things I though, again I’ll never see
But when it’s hard for me to recall my name
You remind me
