my eyes burn waiting for you
looking at this screen looking for truth
messages travel abroad to never be seen again
did you get them and why the growing silence?
i just wipe a solitaire tear at the corner of my eye
what does it matter if we talk to each other tonight?
i would give you all of me if you are there
but then what is there left of me to share
the clock ticks away the hours and days that i wait
to hear anything, a response to what i had to say
but there is nothing there in the mailbox
so what should i do, wait or hang up?
on an one way street, it is easy to lead one further away
but on a two way street at least i get to see your face
yet again with faith i wait for you just one more day
but only God will decide how long on this planet i shall stay
a gamble with time and destiny we both take
one ignores, while the other instigates
but for how long shall we play this game
i only want to know how is your day
