What Happens After Love by Ivy Z.

What Happens After Love


When all the butterflies escape away

And fire decides to dim to a small flame

Will you still hold my hand throughout the day

When all the thrills fade into a bland game


If something new is what you crave to keep

Then let us part and go our separate roads

When you are holding your new love to sleep

Will you remember how your heart explodes


If I’ll be burdened with torment and tears

And toss and turn and lie awake at night

As sorrows and nostalgia turn to fear

Nothing and no one will ever feel right


But yet the unavoidable will come

So let me hold your hand now, to and from
