Erased

My days were young
It seemed they would last forever
I didn’t realise
Time fades away
The buildings strong
With stone severe, they seemed to reign
I had the impression
They were here to stay.

Chorus
I ‘d wish this day
With light and rain, anyway
Will keep a place
In your brain
At night there’s a spot
Where buildings rise
Once erased
There is my space

The inner city
Seemed to live
We went side by side
I touched your hand
Read Genet
But soon this love would be denied
