Can you tell me? By Nancy Pilling
I’m standing in the rain letting it wash away your sins,
Tears betray the sound of laughter,
You say I’m crazy, the way I see it I’ve got cause to be,
Can you tell me?
Why it wasn’t enough that you tried to crush my soul?
What kind of eulogy would I give to the dearly departed,
When the faint embers of life still glow?
The eight times that you told me you loved me, I think you only meant it twice
Why was it so hard to feel the gift I offered?
Why was I so easy to let go?
I’m standing in the dark of night letting the moonlight kiss my skin,
A virgin heart beats within,
Broken so many times yet it waits for love to steal it away,
Can you tell me just what love is?
When I think I know, it changes face again,
I gave my heart, didn’t ask for anything in return,
Perhaps that’s where I went wrong,
Just want to hear those three words,
Know they’re true when spoken,
One look in my eyes and I am sure you will see the depth of love waiting patiently,
Echoes call from a lifetime ago,
Reminding me of a long forgotten dream,
Can you tell me where love goes?
It was here just a moment ago…
I held it close…in a fevered grip then it slipped away into the night.
I have chased love all my life.
I have said “Hey look, I’m here, don’t disappear.”
But when the morning comes and I look around,
Here I am…I’m still alone.
