Searching for that bittersweet melody
An endless pursuit of pure perfection
Distilled melancholic ecstasy
Music capable of resurrection
Everyday, searching for that song
It eludes me to this day
My resolution used to be strong
As the days go by, I hesitate to stay
What is this song I have been searching for?
This accursed unheard of symphony
Unable to remember the tenor
Just the happiness it brought me
I try to find something else to fill the void
The melody faintly echoing in my brain
Trying to figure out the words, my mind devoid
The song fading away like a coffee-stain
Who am I, what even constitutes as me?
So obsessed with a melody I cannot recognize
Is there something I have left to see?
Or will finding this song be my demise?
Abandoning everything I loved, searching for the song
So desperate to feel that emotion again
The time since I heard it, so very long
Chasing the lyrics, a tiring errand
But still I go, trying to replicate this accursed rhythm
Failing each and every day
My psyche forming numerous schisms
My sanity slowly fading away
