When Les Was More

now golden ringlets fall
unclasped in haste
you, you warned me night and day
still I kept returning for one more taste

still I remember
yes I recall
when Les was more
then Les was more

now silver's tarnished
soft fingertips that come unlaced
now no more aerial lights in the darkest nights
my arms wrapped 'round your waist

still I remember
yes I recall
when Les was more
than a dull ache
when Les was more
Les was more
than a heartbreak

now stone breaks
scissors cut
sad paper dolls
we stopped to trace
now you are gone
and you said that you told me so
but never
no never
face to face

still I remember
yes I recall
when Les was more
than a dull ache
when Les was more
Les was more
than a heartbreak
