Treasure Island

scarlette Phoenix

(1987 March 25 / Cape Town)

All I Have Now


A constant cloud overhead
No silver lining to be seen
You've stolen my heart
Now there’s a hole where it’s been

A constant flow of tears
Mourning for what I had
Never thinking it would be lost
Never thinking I’d be this sad

A constant pain
Deep in my chest
Struggling to breathe
Thinking about this mess

A constant ache
In my head
Regretting things
Left unsaid

A constant yearning
For what I dreamed
Hoping together
Or so it seemed

Now you’re gone
And I’m all alone
Left with a shattered heart
Never known

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
