I don’t see a tomorrow,
I don’t feel your kiss on my forehead.
I don’t hear the whisper of my name,
From your sweet lips.
You don’t reek of whiskey,
And empty promises, tonight,
And it scares me,
Down to my bones.
I don’t see you walking away,
But I’ve braced myself,
To hear your footsteps fainting and,
For my strides falling short,
To catch up.
So, my love,
Just ask me to stay tonight,
And we’ll be fine,
Till we’ll not be.
