A sort of cheesy poem from a youth in pain. I still remember everything about its origins.
On the riverbank is where I lie
Raising waters as I cry
Cold tears out here since I lost you
My heart died knowing we are through
You used to lie on this riverbank, too.
Do you remember how we made love?
It is all that I can ever think of
We’d go until the dawn’s sleepy eyes
Blinked out the night to light up the skies
Now, I’m lonely ‘neath this sunrise.
Now, you have left me out here alone
My heart must hurry to find a new home
There is no way for you to atone
For turning my hurting heart to a stone
By finding a riverbank of your own.
Dawn, lift from me this burden of sorrow
And bring me a brighter day tomorrow
Give her back, to have and to hold
Make her your light to chase away cold
And turn this riverbank into gold.
Tonight, I come to our spot down here
Hoping that I can cry my last tear
For the final night we were together
The night that our bond eternally severed
Washing me out to my island, forever.
In a quick flash, all love has been lost
You have forgotten our paths had crossed
You have sailed away to some place new
Leaving me to cling to the memory of you
On this riverbank, forever, with nothing to do.
