days drag on
since you've been gone
i sleep with music on, for better or worse
soft and mellow songs about love and loss
they certainly don't help with the ghosts
fragments of lyrics and melody permeate my dreams
background music to the movie in my mind
is it all a dream?
will i wake up to the soundtrack of some lonely film
playing off in the distance?
don't pinch me
waking up means one more dreary day in the life
just one more minute of the dream, that's all i want...
