lonely without

lonely without by anelephantcant

lonely without by anelephantcant

whenever we are far apart
skies are grey and I am blue
the dark clouds weep in sympathy
I am lonely without you

my knowledge of arithmetic
tells me one plus one makes two
it isn’t hard to understand
why I’m lonely without you

the long nights have been plentiful
with many bleak days too
I live in hope of sunny morn
I am lonely without you

I have had my share of heartache
the good times have been so few
I dream of love tomorrow
I am lonely without you

time passes and I contemplate
if the words I write are true
or have I just convinced myself
I am lonely without you

the saddest thought I ever had
the worst moment I ever knew
was when I finally realised
I am lonelier with you
