I can not tell why you no longer love me
You say you do, but it’s not true
I say it back, but still I feel blue.
And these feelings, they are nothing new.
A mistake has been made, but we still hang on.
We keep pretending that our love’s not gone.
We go through the motions of a happy life.
Loving husband, devoted wife.
I feel so empty deep inside
This great loneliness I always have to hide
You will not admit our love has died
You’re still reaching for what might have survived.
In the same room-a million miles away
After, all these years you’d think we have something to say
I see the board expression there on your face
I view the whole scenario as a hopeless case.
There is no longer any sparkle in your eyes
There is no mask to hide that lie
There is no hunger in your desire
No passion-No romantic fire
Same old, same old everyday
Actors in some sad drawn out play
The curtain has already been torn down
But, we, like mutes, silently hang around.
How long can one repress?
Such longing in one’s own breast?
Knowing there is something better than all this.
Always settling for such a cold, cold kiss.
