Why should I be jealous if his company

Is spent with someone who’s not me

If I have slowly come to see

With him I’m not whom I want to be

I shall write thee a requiem

Of our love that once was

Of passion despite those that chose to condemn

In it you will hear how I’ve suffered for you

I know that you never asked for me to

The tides have now turned

And my river’s now soiled

And I’m spinning with whatever’s the message I’ve learned

How do you know if the river is deep

Before you have run and taken your leap

My river for you runs far deeper in me

Than I ever allowed you to see

Except in the tears that I let overflow

I wonder if you ever will really know …
