Well my eyes, they’re burning
But my thoughts are cold
And Sleep, she is turning her face from mine.
And my whole body’s aching
Like it’s missing something
And there’s less I’m remembering
More and more every day.

You always were saying
That you didn’t want nothing
Too strong or too serious
To get in your way.
But still you kept calling
And in my arms softly sleeping.
I fell asleep to you breathing
And I dreamed of you.

Sometimes I wonder,
Altogether too often,
If the right combination
Of words was there.
And if I could have grabbed them
And handed them to you,
Would you have decided
It was worth it to care?

The morning you flew out
You smiled like the first night
Then you turned and you left
Without looking back.
But I watched you walking
With your oversized suitcase
And I thought well, she’s gone now
But I was wrong about that.
