Inspired by Mishima
When the city sleeps I wander alone
Endless searching for your heart's my home
Late last evening, I saw your ghost
Snow falling on your leather coat.
Your name escaped my lips.
In a gust, you were gone.
Empty echoes followed me home.
Now we're in December, another year has gone.
I play the life of every party.
No one has to know:
I'm just watching seasons, running round the sun.
I tell the moon, "I miss you too.
Send her all my love."
Letting go of all the heartache I've known.
One true love I lost long ago.
Every hour torturous slow
Take these old fantasies and go.
Now's a new year and the past is dead and gone;
The realization my obsession serves me no more.
I'm just watching seasons
Riding round the sun.
I tell the moon "I've broken through
In the light of love."
