Liner Notes: 

Wrote this at the same time as the last lyric, Something New. I guess it's all connected, right?

NOTE: coreystewart added music to this lyric. Listen here: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/38765
Thanks again, Corey!

Lyrics: 

THERE GOES LOVE

What were you doing
Every Friday night
Gone but present
And on my mind

What were you saying
When you held her close
A heartless lover
Transparent ghost

[ch]
Oh there goes love
Kiss it goodbye
When did our star lose its light
No more dreams, no desire
What we had wasn’t enough
So there...there goes love

What were you thinking
When you told those lies
A real impostor with
Deceptive eyes

Where were you going
When you disappeared
A silent message
Loud and clear

[ch]
So there goes love
Kiss it goodbye
When did our star lose its light
No more dreams, no desire
What we had wasn’t enough
So there...there goes love

[br]
Questions asked and ignored
People always wanting more
But I’m moving forward, movin’ on
And I’ve got my walking shoes on

Repeat ch

I agree with Bill "When did our star lose its light" is a pretty cool line. I've got a couple of music ideas swirling around in my head after reading this lyric, I'd love to put music to this... May I please? Smile

Beautiful sad lyrics which open various genre opportunities. It could be ballad, pop or theatre/stage in my opinion and I think everyone will find their own interpretations of genres. Wonderful, inspiring work. Hope to hear it in a song. Please keep me posted.

This one is really nice. I noticed right away that the lines in the verses have a very good, singable rhythm and verses match almost to a tee! Even the "with" at the end of "A real impostor with" is manageable or it can be omitted without changing the meaning too much. I love the symmetrical first lines of each verse. Very well done, Kristi! I bet @coreystewart makes a nice demo. Sad breakup lyrics really fit his powerful voice.

It's always heartbreaking to see relationships get fractured in some shape form or fashion. The flow and structure here is pretty solid. Let me know when the demo is finished.
