QUOTE:

IN THIS SAD OLD LONESOME NIGHT In this sad old lonesome night While in vain I search inside And try to find with all my might That little part of me that�s died I can only see your face And your disappointed eyes And the pain that takes its place In this cold bed of my lies I long to push my life�s clock back To times we had before Before I wandered off the track And discovered less instead of more And yet the only thing I find In the darkness of my soul Is the love I left behind And a heart no longer whole And the emptiness I feel I know is just the cost Of ignoring what is real And what can easily be lost If you can find it to forgive And repair your battered heart We can once more try to live And go forward from this start Though it�s a long long way to fall When the chasm lies within Though each step back�s hard and small When you�re ready, I�ll begin February 1995
