Written in Stone

The person they love is going away, and they're expressing their fear of the unknown future and nostalgia for the times they've spent together.

Do you ever want to reverse time

Or pause it at a moment in your life

Like when you asked me ‘will you be mine’

Cos that was the start of something perfect.

 

Do you remember being a tourist in London town

When I showed you all the places I love

Or in the evenings when I came around

Watching movies while we kissed.

 

But now things are changing

And I don’t know where they’re taking me

I don’t want you to go away.

I’m scared but you need to see that I’m ok

My heart aches but you can’t see my tears

I just need you to be my baby.

Sometimes I wish I could know the future

Sometimes I wish we were written in stone.

 

Remember our first bubble bath

The candlelight flickering and the music gentle

Remember holding hands walking along that path

Watching the colours of the sunrise.

 

The only new memories I want are ones with you

Because our memories are the best I’ve had

I really hope you feel this way too

I hope your memories are as good as mine.

 

But now things are changing

And I don’t know where they’re taking me

I don’t want you to go away.

I’m scared but you need to see that I’m ok

My heart aches but you can’t see my tears

I just need you to be my baby.

Sometimes I wish I could know the future

Sometimes I wish we were written in stone.

 

I know you’re excited but

Are you a bit scared too?

You don’t say anything but

Will you miss me too?

I just want you to tell me

That I’ll always be yours.

 

Cos now things are changing

And I don’t know where they’re taking me

I don’t want you to go away.

I’m scared but you need to see that I’m ok

My heart aches but you can’t see my tears

I just need you to be my baby.

Sometimes I wish I could know the future

Sometimes I wish we were written in stone.

The End
