“No—I Will Not …”

If I could but turn back the hands of time
reminisce over our melancholy used to be
cogitate love’s demise under our old tree
l would confess with vast ease on a dime

Even though you
want me back…
No—I will not

While your hands flew over the piano keys
with perfect harmony as I sipped fine wine
I remained content to watch your star shine
as for me, the limelight, I elected not to seize

Even though you
want me back…
No—I will not

I remember the days of living in a fishbowl
as reality will not relinquish its weary hold
time took its toll on my heart, it turned cold
sometimes I ponder if I will again be whole

Even though you
want me back…
No—I will not

I no longer yearn for your touch as back then
since you sought to shatter our beloved vows
as I had no desire to seek you out and arouse
chose to leave my heartbreak behind—amen

Even though you
want me back…
No—I will not

If I could but turn back the hands of time
reminisce over our melancholy used to be
cogitate love’s demise under our old tree
I would confess with vast ease on a dime

Even though you
want me back…
No—I will not
