| Gone Away
Lighting crashes across the sky, I sit in my den and remember the brisk autumn nights we have shared.
A log burns in the fireplace just like the brandy I sit and taste.
You went away to find yourself.
What did you go looking for did you not know who you really are.
I wonder if on your journey you will forget about me.
I know are love was pure but thatís no guarantee.
Maybe you will decide you want to be free.
I know being with me isnít at times all that easy, but being free can get lonely.
I wonder while you are miles away from me if you are dreaming of me.
I think of you continuously and sleep eludes me.
Youíve been gone so long I am starting to wonder if you are ever going to come back to me.
Iím scared that the love I gave wasnít enough to make you happy.
While youíve been gone Iíve searched deep inside my heart and realized how much you mean to me.
I love you so much you canít even begin to conceive how you have affected me.
Baby please come back I need you more then the air I breathe.
| The Tear of Anger
A tear comes to your eye as you turn and walk away.
I donít even call out and ask you to stay.
My heart was tuned to the love we had now with four little words you turned it to stone.
I wonder did you ever really love me or was I just playing the fool for you.
You walked into my life so lonely and I gave you everything you wanted from a lover but now you say youíve found another.
I sit and look through our photos I wonder now if your smiles were all just fakes.
Days go by and I am lost in my own thoughts as the sandman begs me to rest I progress into a sadder place one filled with questions and hate.
I cry myself to sleep but I am haunted by nightmares of the day you left me.
Warm summer nights that use to be our playground for love are now as cold and lonely as a crypt.
Fall is setting in now and all the flowers that are in our garden are withering away just like the love I felt for you.
Loves wicked flame has burnt me, but in time I know I will fall for another.
Did you really think I would love you forever.
I know how to play the game so what I had to have a little time to gain my heart back. Now I am ready to find another lover, one that wonít make me suffer.
