    Tell me I’m the only one,
    squeeze me real tight.
    Lie and say you love me,
    Stay with me tonight.
    Say that you need me,
    pretend that you really care.
    Act like you really mean it.
    Now, I’ve laid my soul bare.

    Stay until the morning,
    then slip quietly out the door.
    Make love to me gently,
    though you love me no more.
    Tell me it’s forever,
    though I know it’s not true.
    Let me feel the fire,
    that’s inside of you.

    Talk softly to me,
    look me dead in my eyes.
    Pay me no attention,
    when I start to cry.
    When reality becomes tomorrow
    in the bright morning sun;
    I’ll just cry to myself softly,
    and know that it’s done.

    But Then . . .

    . . . we do what we have to do to make it through the night and sometimes the day and everything else. I guess nobody has a lock on a broken a heart and being lonely--Ra
