Another Sad Love Song
by Christi  Richards

It's the words that softly kill you
of one more failed romance.
Where fairy tales are broken, 
and there's not a second chance.

It's the things you remember, 
trying so hard to forget.
All you're left are empty words, 
and things that you regret.

It's the face you see when you close your eyes, 
just when you thought it was through.
And the blame that comes so easily... 
because you're blaming you.

It's the tears flowing down your cheeks, 
in the stillness of the night.
You're grasping onto all that's left,
but still can't make it right.

It's like another sad love song, 
echoing relentlessly in your head.
Forcing back the painful memories 
of things you never should have said.

Strangely, somehow it feels 
as if every word is true. 
And the melody tolls on... 
another sad love song made for you.
