Sing to me an elegy
I don't want
to leave my heart to you
I want you to escape the world we used to own
Leave and run as fast as you could
Smile and speak like a man should.
Ten calendars had passed
Two faces now intertwined
One's old and one's new
One's not me but the other's you.
You think no more of me
That whisper used to be mine
Now it's all hers, all hers
But at least I came first.
Today, both of you stand here
You grew hairs on your face
I'm glad to see you two here
Staying a while in an unwanted place.
You don't have to come to me
You don't have to send me roses
You don't have to remember my name
But can you sing to me an elegy?
