I’ve got to go now
words she speaks too often
she bends, a kiss on his forehead
Then closes his door softly

things are moving to slow now
she confesses to herself
Catching her reflection
she sees her youth, her health

he will wake without her
The whiskey was to blame
Tonight more wiskey and opportunity,
he will never know her shame

the day will pass so quietly
Living with actions so impulsive
So often walking away without dignity
leaves little room for emotion

Struggling to keep herself busy
To forget her troublesome past
for as one night they surely loved
yet only one night his kind of love last

he feels no reason to oblige her
no need to call her name
last night was all about her
“but sweety, this is today”

she sits this night at home
arms tight around her chest
legs covered, all alone
showing her worst, she did her best

he will never feel it
the pain she holds inside
For him another night, another girl
For her, a night alone, till tears run dry

why can he not show her
a sign to carry on
all she asks is to be free
from a midnight call on his phone

he knows shes always there
he can look her in the eyes
his heart in a thousand yard stare
making her believe every lie.

im sorry i have to go now
This time her lips whisper
another night, a lonly girl
never again will he call her.
