Residual Love
Remember all those nights we didn't go to bed,
stayed out after hours and took the punishment instead?
Talked about all the crazy young ideas in our head?
Still innocent and living, despite the problems that we had?

Was that love?

We had it rough, we had it hard;
if not one thing, it was another.
But under those stars, we still had each other.
But we had a lot of dreams we couldn't put together,
never understanding that nothing lasts forever.

Young in love.

You had some disease; a lot of sickness in your mind.
The delirium that life was easier if you tried.
But still, you couldn't find the love in this life
that others came along and promised that you'd find.

Yeah, you had it rough, you had it hard.
If not one thing, it was another.
Alone under those stars, it only seemed to get harder.
And those deceitful people who told you you'd be together
cruelly had in mind that it wouldn't last forever.

Never loved.

I remembered those stars we watched out in the dark,
gazing after midnight in that old, beat up car.
Made me wonder what'cha doin and who you really are,
and if things had been different, would we have gone far..

We had it rough, we had it hard.
If not one thing, it was another.
But under those stars, we always had each other.
We had a lot of dreams, a lot of schemes made together
Never understanding it wouldn't last forever.
It's amazing all the tricks young ambitions can play,
Still I pray that we never would regret those days.

Cuz that was love.
