Nostalgia and Dust

There was a moment we were two
Now lost to nostalgia
Those moments now are a few
Ashes to dust
There were moments I loved you
Now lost to nostalgia
Nostalgia and dust

The world swirls on around us without stop
And the seasons go on without care, no
If the trees could sing they would say
That our lives are short, don’t cling to everything
You touch, because eventually it turns to dust

I held you in my arms, you held me right back
In a moment filled with peace we found one another
So here we are at the edge of ruin, on the fringe of pain
Where one stays, and the other goes away
Then you can blow me away like dust

There was a fleeting moment of bliss
Now lost to nostalgia
I can only reminisce
Ashes to dust
There were times I could taste your kiss
Now lost to nostalgia
Nostalgia and dust

Where do I go now?
I have no place to be
If everything I touch
Turns into nostalgia and dust

Whispers on the wind remind us of times
That are now dead and buried
Enshrined in places we cannot go
If we choose not to forsake the current state of things
But this state is quickly turning into dust

I wished on a star that may not shine anymore
And it got me nowhere in loving you
The dancers swirl to their love song
And life just skips along, but something’s missing
Something’s wrong
And I feel myself turning into

There was a moment we were two
Now lost to nostalgia
Those moments now are a few
Ashes to dust
There were moments I loved you
Now lost to nostalgia
Nostalgia and dust

There was a fleeting moment of bliss
Now lost to nostalgia
I can only reminisce
Ashes to dust
There were times I could taste your kiss
Now lost to nostalgia
Nostalgia and dust

Where do I go now?
I have no place to be
If everything I touch
Turns into nostalgia and dust
