Just a charade

Just a charade – our love is just a charade
Where is the time when you and I were close?
I wore your rose
Just a charade – our life is just a charade
When we were young, we were so carefree
You and me, so happy
But now – a memory fading so fast
Although we thought that it would last
Time and again, we talked but time and again
No guarantees, no hope
Just nothing soft and so much old
Just in a trance, it took that one stolen glance
We were as one, the world before us – so bright
How we tried, and how I cried, a last goodbye
You closed the door of love, yes, my love
Look at me – don't you see what you've done to me?
I tried so hard to mend the bridges that you'd broken
But we couldn't wait to feel the hand of fate
Now it's too late
But something in me tells me that you still love me
Just a charade, we had it made
Love's a charade
You know, you should have stayed
