lost legends of an imaginary empire

They made a legend of our love,
in songs to rock and rule the ages;
of death and dreams and unsung lullabyes,
of memories to make us hide our eyes -

but we were never what they saw,
we were never love’s redemption,
just broken hearts and broken laws;
the broken ways of our intentions.

Then Time came ’round to give us hope,
the wind of centuries and skies untamed;
to take our lies and give them rope,
renew the faith of all the hearts we’d claimed -

see we were never what we seemed,
we were never just the fools of song,
but more than ever they had dreamed,
we were never lost, and never wrong …
