Lyrics: 

The End Was No Surprise

V1
the end was no surprise
as I knew a restless heart
could not be mine

tears falling from our eyes
we made love slowly
and said good bye

PC1
no the end was no surprise
amid the heartfelt cries

C
but I am still surprised
by how I think of you
given years have passed
since that time with you
they say love never dies
now I know that’s true
as I cannot stop loving…
loving you

V2
the end was no surprise
well before the holiday
I planned that time

to start anew unconfined
free from ups and downs
with untangled lives

PC2
no the end was no surprise
amid the hurt and lies

C
but I am still surprised
by how I think of you
given years have passed
since that time with you
they say love never dies
now I know that’s true
as I cannot stop loving…
loving you

B
sometimes I wonder
did we end it too soon
as sometimes I want
the love we once knew

PC3
no the end was no surprise
but my love isn’t through

C
oh I am still surprised
by how I think of you
given years have passed
since that time with you
they say love never dies
now I know that’s true
as I cannot stop loving…
loving you

An elegiac lyric. I really like the way you deal with things that happened in the past and then come back to feelings in the present.

The feeling of continuing to hold on to the memory of something or someone even after so many years have gone by is super relatable. I especially like the lines "they say love never dies / now I know that’s true". Great skirmish!

"sometimes I wonder // did we end it too soon // as sometimes I want // the love we once knew" - OUCH! I've definitely related to that before. What a good set of lyrics, they really hit my in the heartstrings!

I stand amazed at your ability to write such simple, straight, heartwrenching lovelorn lyrics. Applause!

Excellent title. I like in the pre how you repeat the 1st line but add a new 2nd line each time. And I definitely relate to the experience of still thinking of a former love even though it may be long over. Good write!
