We had it all, we were young lovers
We were full of trust and faith
We were dead set on making it last forever, forever and a day

I recall it was fall last year when it started to die
Standing still as the temperature kills
The summer's thrills that were keeping it alive

The days got colder so I held you closer
In an effort to save us from time
Almost like a wind came and ruined a spark and left us in the dark

But hey, I could've told you that I loved you
And stayed around to kindle the fire
But I was late on my return and now you've lost all faith
And I am the liar, I'm no longer what you require

I still feel you at night
Turning in the sheets when I turn out the light
That's how it goes, the ghost of your first love
Won't ever leave you till the day that you die

I won't ever live down leaving her behind
Even if the choice was the right one
It was a good thing staring me right in the face
But I turned and ran away

Hey, I could've told you that I loved you
And stayed around to kindle the fire
But I was late on my return and now you've lost all faith
And I am the liar, I'm no longer what you require

Back then the days were so much faster
We were young, stubborn and in love with disaster

You know you can't go back even if you try
You better just forget her, won't you close the door on me?
'Cause it'll never be the same, it'll never be the way it was before

Well hey, I could've told you that I loved you
And stayed around to kindle the fire
But I was late on my return and so you've lost all faith
And I am the liar

Oh hey, I would've told you that I loved you
And stayed around to kindle the fire
But I was late on my return and now you've lost all faith in the dying light
I'm no longer what you require
I'm no longer what you require, no longer
