I swear I won't mourn you
I won't miss the days
Of snuggling up to you
Of you kissing away my fears
Of the long phone calls talking about our days
They never happened anyway
I won't miss the time you visited
And baked my favorite dish
And watched the kids while I went for a run
And folded my laundry tightly
It never happened anyway
I won't mi...

You take flight with Tokyo in mind.
Suddenly it’s Tokyo on the airwaves,
Tokyo in your eyes.
Red lights beam everywhere in the skies

The frigid air blowing through the trees
on this winter night reminds us
that the warmth we used to know
left us long ago.
What would it take
but a grasp of her hand,
an inviting smile, a long embrace
to shake ...

Let not this fantasy be shattered by reality.
Let me stay in the bliss of passionate kisses,
Where tenderness sends shivers down my neck.
I’d rather not argue over the daily banality,
Whose turn it is to mind the children

Shared in our bloodstreams;
Let it not bleed out from our hearts.
Perhaps for the...
