Faded, into black and white

A silken rose, once sweet delight

Its colors, now ravished, bled apart

Time stands still, as does my heart

We were together, now I am one

This emptiness, can’t be undone

By memories, so long denied

They still lay heavy, deep inside

So let the clock ticktock away

Yes, I will wait for that fine day

When the time, at last, for me is right

Never again will I fade, into black and white
