There are times when i still want you.When the rest of the world has gone to sleep
And I stay up watching teary movies so i can follow suit.
When a stranger walks past me at the mall wearing your perfume
When life’s sometimes ugly scent hits me full in the face
and it is all I can do not to keel overIn my weakness
In my boredom
In my pain
In my shame
These are the times that i still want youThese are the times that are getting fewer and farther between

Song of the day: Bon Jovi: Living on a Prayer
