Scarlet – A ballad

Last summer, eyes met beneath the sky of chandeliers
Scarlet ball gowns, royal lights, I see you there.
We were young, yet believed we’d sail through it
For nothing lasts forever, we knew they’d be coming.

Amidst glorious rivalry, moon and Scarlet romance
We bid each other adieu, you told, “The war has begun.”
Left, dense smog of summer rumours holding our hands
For they’d set ablaze scribbles, we knew they’d be coming.

Left, faith trembles upon the foundation of wonderings
Told, “Scarlet blood voyages ended, his comrades returned.”
For once, ours dream in my head was fading, remembered
“Blues would never be darkened”, for I knew you would be coming.

Last summer I kept wishing, wondering if you were coming
Small town now dazzles with our rings, I see you there.
Vows are to be exchanged, Scarlet letters are to be read
For they now believe in us, we’d sail through it, down the aisle.
