Another day dawns,
The show must go on--
Even without you.
I glare at the clouds,
Thinking that if they'd leave, so much like
you,
I might just be able to forget you too.

Caffeine and a couple of pills
To unwrap my day;
I feel sometimes like eating,
But things just aren't the way they should be
Since you went away.

And all my friends have tired of hearing,
And everyone I know just turns to ice;
I wonder if it's always been this way,
As I stare at the telephone dial--
Wonder if my feeble hope will suffice
For even just a little while.

Once you said we'd still be friends,
And what I wouldn't give
To simply see your face again;
But if I'm honest with myself
And dig the truth from beneath my skin,
I don't think I can ever be your friend.
