Can’t Sleep Again
I can’t sleep again. Been thinking too much
Worrying and wondering what may be
A rift in the family will shake you
When love’s solid walls go paper thin
Seems even my angels have turned their faces away
Where do you run when the roof’s caving in?
The walls need painting. I don’t care
No paint can cover up the ache in here
Well meaning questions and careful words
“If there’s anything at all, just call.”
But they know and I know there’s nothing to do
But hang up the phone and let the tears fall
All my life I’ve waited for you
Darling don’t you know I’d wait my whole life through
Some say “so it goes” but that’s just not true
I love one man only and that man is you
I can see you now with your ice blue eyes
That pierce me through like daggers in the dark
Keen conversation can drive you from my mind
But no surgeon’s knife could cut you out of my heart
Since that first day I knew you were mine
Nothing’s really changed, you haunt me all the time
You’re the question I ask, the answer so near
                         You’re the beating of my heart and the whisper in my ear
