Getting Over You

A new year today
The old slipping away
Put away the stale
Wipe away the days.

Refresh my memory
What is your name again?
Let’s go and have a drink
Let’s dance and remember when.

Clean sheets upon the bed
Blank shadows scream your name
Just place your imprint baby
Let’s play that familiar game.

Your body feels indifferent
I can still remember him
The old year slipping in
I am remembering once again.

I scream his name in vain
As you raise me up above
The hurt you feel; I see
I swear I’m not in love.

You climb out of my bed
You slip your clothes back on
You shut the door so quiet
Now both have come and gone.

What’s Your Name?

I lay alone at nights
Cursing the empty pillow
Where once you laid your head.
Resting in my arms
Legs gently entangled
Love singing in the air
What I thought was meant to be
Forever, and ever more
Leaves me crying out your name
As you walked out my bedroom door.
Why must I endure this pain
Won’t I ever learn
But yet my heart calls out
It seems to never learn
I just don’t want to be alone
I will seek until I find your name.
