42 Minus Love = Zero

Seven days

I’ve been waiting

For the phone to ring

Seven days

I’ve been dreading

What tomorrow will bring

For life alone without

Your love


Out loud

Like a dying dove

We both bottle up pain

In this driving rain

And it pours

So I walk alone


By tears

And darling I can’t help

Thinking those tears are yours
