So Long Ago

My love, my love.
How long has this been going on?
We said our vows
by the riverside,
it seems like yesterday.
But our love was born
so long ago.

My love, my love.
How could I let this happen?
I let someone come between us.
Another person in our bed.
You feel you barely know her
but you met her
so long ago.

My love, my love.
How can I heal these wounds?
You saw me change before your eyes.
You thought the woman you love had died.
Wondering who was this new, tormented soul.
But my illness began its control
so long ago.

My love, my love.
How many nights have you sat by me?
Through tears, and screams, and worse.
You'd kiss me a thousand times if it would break this curse.
But what about your wounds that I made
not so long ago?
