Now that love is gone - Matthews/While
From the album ‘Perfect Mistake’ While and Matthews


Once the morning held a promise in your eyes
When our love was young
Now the dawn brings an echo of its lies
Now that love is gone

We wished our days together then would never end
When our love was young
But now darkness is my friend
Now that love is gone

Who will quell this burning fire
In this well of deep desire
Who’ll be the moon and the sun
Now that love is gone

We slept entwined our bodies bound eternally
When our love was young
But now you lay so far from me
Now that love is gone

I found a pressing of a flower that you gave
When our love was young
It’s faded like the flowers on your grave
Now that love is gone
