A song I wrote for LB, many, many years ago. It's pretty much stayed the same all these years, but it has a new life to it now.


I felt something wrong.
The night seemed way too long.
Thought that we could make love!
That wouldn't be enough.
Woke up at 3.
You were watching TV.
You knew I couldn't sleep,
without you next to me.

No, I can't explain it in silly words.
Although, I'll always try to find a way to say, "I love you."

Read the letter you wrote.
And I started to choke.
It came from nowhere.
I felt it wasn't fair.
Found you ready to leave,
your lipstick on my sleeve.
Left a stain and a mark,
way down deep in my heart.

I started to cry.
Thought we were living a lie.
In each of my tears,
every day of that year.
You make the world right,
when you hold me tight.
You open my eyes,
I can explain why.
