lyrics

The end of an era
A cheap farewell
The days that once were
Will never be again

All my condolences
And sincere regret
For your happiness passed
And new loneliness debt

Cheer up
You powerful charm
Look down upon the darkening days
Give up
Your remnants of faith
And dream new dreams
And find new ways
And then you'll make this whole world
A more beautiful place

A pocketful of memories
And long forgotten songs
A lingering suspicion
That you knew all along

The chaos of new birth
And dying love
It will consume all of you
If you don't feed it enough

Cheer up
You powerful charm
Look down upon the darkening days
Give up
Your remnants of faith
So you can dream new dreams
And then you'll find new ways
And then you'll make this whole world
A more beautiful place

The end of an era
Tears for a friend
The hands that once held her
Are on the mend
