Waking licking up the salty taste of my tears
The agony of only having you in my dreams for all these years
Bittersweet having loved so powerful so strong
Knowing we were not meant to have each other for very long
That first time I caught you eye in that rear view mirror
my heart was lost with no escape and it couldn't be any clearer
Me such a trusting wide eyed teenager
Not afraid of love's sharp sting no worry of the danger
Only to end up watching thru glass the line of my tears streaming down my face
As I watched your plane disappear into the clouds knowing this first true love could never be replaced
Oh that old adage of the one that got away
Will haunt me til my dying day!!
And will it be your name I whisper with my last breath?
Bittersweet is this ill fated love I have carried in my heart til death.
