*yawns* Tried using a different method for this filk... hope it works better. It's about Erika's past with Hitoshi (gomen, Mr. Kane...) I sorta took the story to indicate that Erika had had no real clue about any problems before Hitoshi broke the engagement, so that's included in this... to "After the Gold Rush" by Neil Young (he is the one who first did this song, yes?)

After the Heart Break

I remember how it was
When I was starting,
How the future seemed truly bright...
My career was growing and
Worries parting
For he was there by my side.
I didn't have a care left
In the world,
Everything was going right...
Looking back at how events unfurled,
How could I have missed the light?
Looking back at how events unfurled,
How could I have missed the light...?

It was raining on that fateful day then,
That still haunts me in my dreams
I had thought that things were golden,
But it's never as it seems...
He told me I deserved so much more
He was dust in my moonbeam
And he left before I could say
I was sure
He was so much more than he deemed
And he left before I could say
I was sure
He was so much more than he deemed

And so now I was left lonely,
My hope dying,
In a world now turned dark and cold;
I could not keep trying
My starbound flying
So my hand I chose to fold
Lost in despair, crushed by despair
I stay here, growing old...
I'm left wond'ring how else we just might have fared
If my feelings I had told
Wond'ring how else we just might have fared
If my feelings I had told
