Lyrics

I saw your face, painted on the wall
Shapeless in space, colorless and small
        I remember you, faded and subdued

I spent the day, haunted by your sight
Hiding away, curse away the light
        I remember you, fading out of view

    You're a memory now
    You're all faded and brown
    You're just namelessly hung
    On the tip of my tongue in a silent remark

    You're a memory now
    You're just dust on the ground
    Just a whisper of steam on the crest of a dream
    While I walk in the dark
    You're a memory now

Sheltered and safe, hidden and concealed
Your timid face, never was revealed
        Shaded from the light, tepid and so slight

Shake off the dust, wipe away the years
Scrape off the rust, nothing more appears
        I've been through it all, still I can't recall
  
    [Chorus]

This song is so sad! It would be in danger of being maudlin, or (God forbid!) cliche, except for the spots of lyrical brilliance. "A whisper of steam on the crest of a dream..." Those sorts of words give my eyes permission to cry without worrying about it.
