    You said
    Come with me
    But I did not go
    I thought our love
    would hold us though
    Through all the years
    and all the tears
    surely this was the stuff,
    the glue, that would bind.
    But I would learn that ours
    was not the permanent kind
    ours was weak
    ours was flawed
    words too precious to speak
    emotions brimming, withheld.
    Until the pot boiled over, steamin
    and words shot out
    like a cannon, I wasn't dreamin
    Cause nightmares wouldn't
    have pierced that deep
    Bad dreams end
    when we're not asleep.
    I'm as wide awake
    As I'm gonna get...
    Isn't it over yet?
    Isn't it over yet?
    Absence does not make
    the heart grow fonder.
    It just makes a weak heart
    turn stone cold.

    it may go cold but within it's warm & fuzzy
    surely that love not gone just hiding
    like dis flow
