Prelude To An Epic/Flowers For Ingrid

This song is by Eighteen Visions and appears on the album Until The Ink Runs Out (2000).

God damn, you were the best.
A dozen roses couldn't say goodbye to all the heartache
So I left them in the garden.
The swollen eclipse now leaves me in the gloom of another episode.
She's lost in jaded memories.
Draping over the sun.
Will this be our swansong?
Our last dance?
Come take my hand and we'll watch fate destroy us.

God damn, you were the best.
I now reality's gone mad with the blink of an eye.
Where's that girl I once knew?
Her illustrations paint a picture.
Now her dirty tears bleed.
I've been looking for something so give it to me
Because I collect hearts and yours is mine sweet thing.
Now the flowers bloom in June lay at the grave of our final eve.
Fade from me with September sunsets and run away with my heart.
These memories still hang over my head like a halo
But how long will this angel watch over my shoulder.
How long will I hide behind this pen and how long will you wait for me?
I guess until the ink runs out...
