A Taste of Yesterday

I woke up with the taste of your name lingering on my lips.
Taking in the morning sounds, I rolled over and looked around.
I was hoping to find you there for one more gentle kiss.

But, that's when it all came flooding back to mind.
It’s been at least ten years since you were mine.

That beautiful face, such a deceitful grin. 
My lover, you are a King.
Oh... How you left my soul searching.

I'm merely drifting through these dreams.
Aching with despair, badly in need of a heart repair.

And now…now, I'm just standing here. 
Your name and face burned into my eyes.
My heart still breaking from all your beautiful lies.

The taste of your sweet love staining my lips red like wine.
The bitter flavor of missing you lacing every moment of my life.

That beautiful face, such a deceitful grin. 
My lover, you are a King.


That’s right, you are the King of my bleeding heart.
You left your arrow, you hit your mark.
You etched your name in my stone heart.

My lover, you are a King
That beautiful face, such a deceitful grin. 
How you left my soul searching.
My heart still breaking from all your beautiful lies.
The bitter flavor of missing you lacing every moment of my life
The taste of your sweet love staining my lips red, like wine.
