Waking up

George Kay on the radio

Mix 96 again

Feeling so sad

My only friend

~~~~~~~~

Best friends are far

Can't hold them close

Can't comfort them or him

The one who needs me most

~~~~~~~~

Waking up I think of him

Try to sleep through the din

Twisting in the sheets

I'm suffocating in

~~~~~~~~

Each song reminds me

He needs me more than ever

But age says, "No, you can't

It's not right, not ever."

~~~~~~~~

What happened to honesty

I understand we can't been seen

That we pain each other

Remembering what we'd been

~~~~~~~~

NO! He can't be sad

I'm trying my best

How can I help him?

Give him some small rest

~~~~~~~~

I'm the type of girl

Who hates to see anyone sad

Who wants happiness to rein

To wash away the bad

~~~~~~~~

Waking up, thinking of his eyes

Deeper blue than ever before

A hand covers them up

As he gazes no more

~~~~~~~~

I don't care about age

Our souls love, not our bodies

The world against us

Yet he feels he must submit

~~~~~~~~

I pledged to make people happy

But now I've hurt his heart

Embarrassment, grief, no regret

Written across his beautiful face

~~~~~~~~

What can I do???? I caused this

I can't rest til he does

Til he finds happiness again

Until his heart is fixed

The End
