When we met I was at your heels
worrying over minutes we did not share
Eventually all empires must kneel
to you that was just standard fare

We said we’d look past each other’s flaws
at all the glory promised behind
You said my heart was untested and raw
but that it would harden up in time

Looking back I can’t help but wonder
if we could have gone all the way
Those little fights would have pulled us under
But with hindsight that’s easy to say

Now I am a king without a crown
only nostalgia to warm my chest
These daily dreams I cannot drown
about the girl I’ve laid to rest
