Absent Lover

worlds apart
falling out of grace
considered smart
canít rest in this place
heads are spinning
out of kilter
missed the beginning
picking the splinter

poison swallows pain
suffocating faith
against the grain
lovers take the bait
lonely breadcrumb
weakest link
exposed thumb
drifters sink

call out to me
if itís no bother
maybe i see
like an absent lover
weeds are spread
hiding undercover
walking the dead
like an absent lover

wanting freedom
simple the couple
a different drum
in time we stumble
lost in cadence
off the beat
riding the fence
marked our defeat

he said she said
whatís the matter?
language bled
kills the latter

call out to me
if itís no bother
maybe i see
like an absent lover
weeds are spread
hiding undercover
walking the dead
like an absent lover
