And You Call That Love?


Unanswered phone calls,
total disrespect.
Promises spoken..
you quickly forget.

Chasing a dream,
while wide awake.
Wanting to scream,
total heartbreak.

Memories gone bad,
no comfort at all.
Who will catch me,
if I fall.

I lay in darkness,
and think of you.
Remembering the things,
we used to do.

Drifting in a river,
the river of sorrow.
Living in yesterdays,
no hopes for tomorrow.

You tug at the strings,
attached to my heart.
Jerking so hard,
you break it apart.

No smile on my lips,
no light in my eyes.
Words you speak,
are hurtful, mean lies.

Seeking an answer,
I ask God above...
It hurts so much,
and you call that Love?

How can that be..
when it brings only pain.
Feelings of loss,
there's nothing to gain.

The hurt slides over me,
it fits like a glove.
Painful and tight..
and you call that love?

Nothing I might do,
and nothing I can say.
Will change anything..
or make you stay.

So what does it matter..
if I stay or go?
I grow even sadder..
that's all I know.

Sad is my heart,
my lips cannot smile.
Time to climb out of,
this river "Denial."

Time to awaken,
time to set myself free.
Forget the old dreams...
that will now never be.
