I absolutely love this song. It is beauty personified, in my humble opinion.

Dexter comes up with the greatest melodies... I'm so thankful to have this band in my life.

-----------
There's a moment in time
And it's stuck in my mind
Way back when we were just kids
'Cuz your eyes told a tale
Of an act of betrayal
I knew that somebody did

Oh, waves of time
Seem to wash away the scenes of our crimes
For you this never ends

Can you stay strong
Can you go on
Kristy are you doing ok
A rose that won't bloom
Winter's kept you
Don't waste your whole life trying
To get back what was taken away

Though the marks on your dress
Have been neatly repressed
I knew that something was wrong
And I should have spoke out
And I'm so sorry now
I didn't know
'Cuz we were so young

Oh, clouds of time
Seem to rain on innocence left behind
It never goes away

Can you stay strong
Can you go on
Kristy are you doing ok
A rose that won't bloom
Winter's kept you
Don't waste your whole life trying
To get back what was taken away

I've loved it since I heard the preview. And now I love it even more. Thanks for the effort of writing the lyrics.

No problem. I normally don't do that kind of thing, but I had to for this song. I love it!

I'm having troubles in my life right now, and I actually cried during my first listen - it was partly in amazement at the simplicity and sincerety of the lyrics, and partly because I had someone in mind while I was listening. I'm kind of an emotional wreck these days... But I digress (I think).

This is what did it to me...

"And I should have spoke out
And I'm so sorry now
I didn't know
'Cuz we were so young"

This is the second most emotional song from them, the first one is Gone Away. And that's why I love it.

I found it really hard to listen to first time round... but that's the mark of an amazing song, if it can have that sort of emotional impact.

This one seems to be very likely to get loads of radio airplay. Catchy and friendly.
