I return shameless with his cologne
thought I had worked it all out
thought we could make it work

You rightly replied it was a lie
remembering our fights
in the fire and ashes of time

You knew we were a bad idea
a fire that cannot be tamed
burning everything in its way

I was mistaken to return
without pride to reclaim
a love too late and gone

You stopped to wave goodbye
to the lover you once wore
with a smile sailing through
forgetting a scent now mine to hold
