I couldn't resist...my mind was a whirl
Just not a good night for this lonely old girl
I wanted so badly to hear the sound of your voice
To dial your number....there was no other choice
I held my breath as I heard the first ring
And then through the second the tears started to sting
And At last a click and your sweet voice so low
Saying into my ear a friendly "hello"
I smiled and thought of a hundred things to say
But remembered that most of them we had said today
So I uttered a sweet and warm return "hello"
Then listened to stunned silence......and thought, "uh-oh"
Then your voice..recovered, but yet a bit strained
I imagined your face, smiling, but just a bit pained
I wanted to hang up, right then and there
Then all the things you said to me came back, and I didn't care
You talked to me like a bothersome relative or old friend
And in the back of my mind..I thought, this is the end
I hear professions of love so strong and so deep
But only in daylight, and in secret you'll keep
So, I ended our talk and hung up the phone
And went back in the shadows to wait all alone
For something that may never see the light of day
As you showed me our love must be hidden away.
