missing you

Saturday, August 15th, 2020

Every time I think of you,
I always catch my breath
And I’m still standing here
And you’re miles away
And I’m wondering why you left
And there’s a storm that’s raging
Through my frozen heart tonight

I hear your name in certain circles
And it always makes me smile
I spend my time thinking about you
And it’s almost driving me wild

And there’s a heart that’s breaking
Down this long distance line tonight

I ain’t missing you at all (missing you, missing you)
Since you’ve been gone away (missing you, missing you)
I ain’t missing you (missing you, missing you)
No matter (missing you, missing you)
What I might say (missing you, missing you)

There’s a message in the wire
And I’m sending you this signal tonight
You don’t know how desperate I’ve become
And it looks like I’m losing this fight
In your world I have no meaning
Though I’m trying hard to understand

And it’s my heart that’s breaking
Down this long distance line tonight

I ain’t missing you at all (missing you, missing you)
Since you’ve been gone away (missing you, missing you)
I ain’t missing you (missing you, missing you)
No matter what my friends say (missing you, missing you)

And there’s a message that I’m sending out
Like a telegraph to your soul
And if I can’t bridge this distance
Stop this heartbreak overload

‘Cause I ain’t missing you at all (missing you, missing you)
Since you’ve been gone away (missing you, missing you)
I ain’t missing you (missing you, missing you)
No matter what my friends say (missing you, missing you)
I ain’t missing you (missing you, missing you)
I ain’t missing you
I can lie to myself

And there’s a storm that’s raging
Through my frozen heart tonight

I ain’t missing you at all (missing you, missing you)
Since you’ve been gone away (missing you, missing you)
I ain’t missing you (missing you, missing you)
No matter what my friends say

Ain’t missing you (missing you)
I ain’t missing you(missing you)
I ain’t missing you(missing you)
I keep lying to myself (missing you)
Ain’t missing you

i know him so well

Nothing is so good it lasts eternally
Perfect situations must go wrong
But this has never yet prevented me
Wanting far too much for far too long

Looking back, I could have played it differently
Won a few more moments, who can tell?
But it took time to understand the man
Now, at least, I know I know him well

Wasn’t it good?
(Oh so good)
Wasn’t he fine?
(Oh so fine)
Isn’t it madness?
He can’t be mine
But in the end he needs a little bit more than me
More security
(He needs his fantasies and freedom)
I know him so well

No one in your life is with you constantly
No one is completely on your side
And though I move my world to be with him
Still the gap between us is too wide

Looking back I could have played it differently
Learned about the man before I fell
But I was ever so much younger then
Now, at least, I know I know him well

(overlapping above)
Looking back, I could have played it some other way
I was just a little careless, maybe
I was so much younger then
I know I know him well

Wasn’t it good?
(Oh so good)
Wasn’t he fine?
(Oh so fine)
Isn’t it madness?
He can’t be mine
Didn’t I know how it would go?
If I knew from the start,
Why am I falling apart?

Wasn’t it good?
Wasn’t he fine?
Isn’t it madness?
He won’t be mine
But in the end he needs a little bit more than me
More security
(He needs his fantasy and freedom)
I know him so well
It took time to understand him
I know him so well

From the musical “Chess”; original recording by Elaine Paige & Barbara Dickson

walk from here

Sunday, April 5th, 2020

I wish that I knew how to hate you
Or maybe not to give a damn
How do you make leaving graceful?
I’m giving up the best I can

I might be no good
Sweetie, you’re no better
We used to be sugar and now all I taste is bitter
I might be no good
Sweetie, you’re no better
Sweetie, you’re no better

I thought you’d be the one to save me
Honey, you’re not worth the tears
There’s no need to drive me crazy
Honey, I can walk from here

I wish that I knew how to say this
Cutting up the lines we blurred
The space in between love and friendship
It’s beautiful until it hurts

I thought you’d be the one to save me
Honey, you’re not worth the tears
There’s no need to drive me crazy
Honey, I can walk from here

I might be no good
Sweetie, you’re no better
We used to be sugar and now all I taste is bitter
I might be no good
Sweetie, you’re no better
Sweetie, you’re no better

I thought you’d be the one to save me
Honey, you’re not worth the tears
There’s no need to drive me crazy
Honey, I can walk from here

I thought you’d be the one to save me
Honey, you’re not worth the tears
There’s no need to drive me crazy
Honey, I can walk from here
