He captivated me with his voice singing clear and strong,
While his fingers strummed a melody on the beat up guitar
One look into his bluest ocean eyes, so crystal calm
And I fell… And I fell…And I fell…
Although the time we loved exploded like a brilliant shooting star
Leaving jagged scars…Leaving jagged scars…
The only memories left are the remnants of a broken heart,
And the dulled remembrance of his dazzling smile.
