Where do we stand?

Toe to toe or side to side?

Will you be willing to look into my eyes?

I wonder where your heart is

I wonder where your thoughts go

When you look at me, do you see someone else?

Are you wishing for ghosts?

I can see it in your eyes, turning darker into the night

When you’re feeling sad, growing stronger from memories

You slowly close me off and say goodnight

I don’t want to leave. I don’t want to go

But what choice do I have when you’re moving me to the door?

I take your hand and you don’t let go

But I know your mind is off somewhere else

Your love is far, your senses dimmed

And I know what you won’t say…
