The Cactus and the Dragon

Sweet Taste

I remember a time that seems so far behind
when love gave me such a sweet taste
I don't know where it went, was it squandered or spent
or did it just blow away on the wind
but now I look back at how I went off the track
and I can feel the despair closing in
but I know it will pass as I drain the next glass
and lose myself in one more pretty face

I leave on my own and I make my way home
and the road seems so hard on my feet
and God only knows all the things I let go
without ever counting the cost
there are visions that haunt me and memories that taunt me
looking back on the paths that I crossed
and I feel one more day go slipping away
like the cars that pass by on the street
