A suitcase of memories, heart full of sorrow.
Eyes filled with emptiness. No Dreams for tomorrow.
Plans turned to nothing. Here standing alone.
Each room echoes emptiness. Now call it home.
The awful sound of tea poured for one.
The past lies in tatters. Our future gone.
The tears wont fall. The pain doesn’t ease
Silence rules but it isn’t peace
Everythings turmoil. What must I do
What does it matter now I am without you.
Shopping for one and cooking for one
If for me alone the pleasure is none.
Some say your free, do what you will
The price of freedom, Doesnt lonliness kill?
The spirit dying, you feel it inside
The numbing pain, A hurt you cant hide.
Lovers on Telly, What is the weather?
You cant help but think what you’d have been doing together.
Staring from the balcony, The grass green below.
Should I stay and take the pain or a step and let it go?
Who is to care if I were gone?
Would anyone cry, Am I so alone?
Love dies each day. More are in pain
Just let time heal. I’ll live again.
Nothing is forever. It’s all constant change
The plans are all gone. nothing remains
Beginning again. It hurts so much.
Someday it will come, that loving touch
Now stronger, wiser, you can give again.
Give all that you have. Dont fear the pain.
