I will love you

but not like before

then we were children

looking for a fairy tale's conclusion

now we're weary adults

who know the punchline and wince

but if I didn't love you

I wouldn't have been sucked into this

and together we share the tired shrug

together we regret what we thought

we were doing to amend and renew a love

oh fools who believe faith and love in a world

without any I will love you

knowing now how the dream fades into a fogged afterward
