The Breeze And I are saying with a sigh,
That you, no longer care.
The Breeze And I are whispering goodbye,
To dreams, we used to share.
Ours was a love song that seemed constant as the moon,
Ending in a strange, mournful tune.
And all about me, they know you have departed without me,
And we wonder why,
The Breeze And I.
