Is It Loneliness That Makes You Call?

I hold onto your every word, waiting for the ones I want to hear.

Is it loneliness that makes you call?

Or could it possible be, your love for me?


Is it me that you miss?

Oh how I long for your kiss

... I know it’s not me

No matter how bad I want it to be...


I wish you dreamt of me,

The way I dream of you

Yet I know that you don’t

And coming home to me, you won’t


If you ever loved me, let it show or let me go


I hold onto your ever word

Waiting for the ones I want to hear

Whisper sweet words in my ear


Oh how I fear you will never be mine

And my heart will always be yours

But our stars will never align


Is it my attention you need?

If so, then why me?

Am I shiny enough to catch your eye, and then it’s goodbye?

Am I enough to touch, but not to keep?

Is it loneliness that makes you call?
