Silent Night

I made an mp3 disc of Bon Jovi albums for my car (That doesn't really surprise you, does it?!). I heard this song the other day and it sparked something. One of those long-forgotten songs. The mind may have forgotten it, but the soul didn't.
It makes my heart ache for all the loves that weren't fought for. The ones that mattered. The ones that crushed souls. The ones that shouldn't have been relegated to the world of "ships passing in the night."
Sorry. Sentimental post. Feeling kind of sentimental lately.

After the smoke clears
When it's down to you and I
When the sun appears
And there's nothing left but goodbyes
We'll just turn and walk away
How could we let it end like this
Just turn and walk away
Should we seal it with a kiss

It's too late
Now you're out and on the run
It's too late
Held up in love without a gun

[Chorus]
Silent night
We hold up our candle light
Silent night
The night our love died
No words to say
And we're both too tired to fight
Just hold me close and don't let go...

It was all so simple when
You were to be queen and I'd be your king
I guess those dreams got lost
Cause baby you're still you and I'm still me
Now letting go
It's always the hardest part to fight
When we both know
We're just two more victims of the night

It's too late
Too late to wonder why
Much too late
To save a love that's died.

[Chorus]

Just hold me close and don't let me go

After the smoke cleared
It was down to you and I
When the sun appeared
There was nothing left but goodbyes...
Silent night
