Lyrics: 

I don't want to see you go
Lyrics © 2019 Nadia Cripps

Where is that time when
You loved hearing my singing with piano or violin?
Where is that time when your sad crying
My gentle song would turn into your smiling?

Where is that time
When you'd wave when we'd separate for just few hours
Where is that time
When you were keen to find for me your amazing flowers?

I fear I might forget one day
About what we had some years ago
You are with me yet so faraway
I don't want to see you go

It's all changed as you're in your teens
Your choices are different now
You prefer independence by all means
I respect that but I'm always in the wrong somehow

I fear I might forget one day
About what we had some years ago
You are with me yet so faraway
I don't want to see you go

Where is that time
When you wanted to walk with me
Where is that time
When we were running together towards the Caspian sea?

I miss so much how close we once were
Wish we could return to what the two of us had before

I fear I might forget one day
About what we had some years ago
You are with me yet so faraway
I don't want to see you go

Yes where! I like the use of repetition here to hammer home the point. Very good lyrics especially in such a short time.

Emotive lyric about difficult relationship transitions, especially between parent and child. Smile

I love the questions that you raise as you fear a loss of something really special. Lovely sentiments and intimate vulnerability coming through!

Love the chorus and the wistful lyrics. Especially like the Caspian sea verse. Brava, Nadia!

The sadness comes through even more than fear, of the inevitable changes through which a parent must live. You expressed it well here. I for one miss your piano on this. Wink

Looking at the lyrics...oh wow, the first part shows some kind of decline in a relationship. The next part...no more flowers. The chorus now suggests that you might be changing too and hate to see this going down...pretty deep stuff. The next part looks like you are getting hammered and blamed. The next section asks the question again where is our love going. The next two line section sums up your point about we use to be close but something changed and I wish it hadn't changed. Chorus and out. Pretty good with a very strong message. Too bad that people only hear what they want though. I thought the first section was the strongest because it features a singer performer. Great job on this.

Wow, Nadia! So open and emotional, and so particular in its recollections, but universal too. The pain of enduring these changes, so absolutely necessary for growth, but still tearing something away that is/was so precious. Motherhood requires so much change and redefining how to express love. I hope you will find just the right singer who has been through this stage of separation. Or better yet, you.

wonderful write, captures that essense of the changing relationship between parent and child, -to the extent its drawn from real life, im sure its a difficult period now, but I hope and trust neither of you will forget the feelings from years past, etc..... nice setting down of the whole situation, well done

"Where is that time" is an interesting phrase as it turns a time in the past into a place that we can search for. You've captured the slightly illogical but all too real emotion in the separation and nostalgia and concern.
