Night Scent

Just for a moment tonight
In these brooding charcoal hills
A sunset of melting fire
In air so warm and still

It seemed the world was wrapped
In a hazy rose glow
It was the perfect image
Of a day so long ago

You said would be forever
Words I wish I'd never known
Though the picture is still perfect
Im standing on my own

Breathing in the same night scent
Under the same eternal stars
Wondering why it all had to end
Wondering where you are

Then just for a second I feel
Enchantment destroy the gloom
As if there was an angel
Right with me in my room

Wrapping her wings around me
Feeding me images of you
Stealing your thoughts she lets me know
That you've remembered too.
