    Another day here and another night gone
    How much longer can I sing this sad song?
    Variety is slowly becoming non-existent in my life
    And not having you is no easier than before

    I make it to the office
    And write some words for you
    The songs on the radio play like a moment in time with you…
    So familiar, yet the words still come out wrong
    I never did tell you to say
    How could I have been so self involved?

    I hustle through traffic
    Only to enter a dark, quiet and empty space
    As I chop my onions
    I remember how you always hated them
    And would pick them out
    Was that it?
    I should have chopped them bigger
    It would of made it easier
    How could I of not been more aware

    The night reaches a halt
    And my memories get deeper
    I try to go back to the time of love
    I try harder….

    ****…still nothing

    We were never in love
    But were you?

    After everything is said and done, takes a while for things to seem normal again, like the way you expressed this.

    you made me smile when you said,
    maybe you should have chopped the onions bigga.
    too much :rolling:

    like seperation from the person who was not serious
    makes a simple relation ship more enchantic than a mystic crush
    like how your touch strengthens me
    hinting me to relax

    nuff' a dat...

    veryy tite words you shared..
