Trying Not To Remember
The piano keys are silent
As I stand here alone
Trying not to remember
How long you've been gone.
I wish I knew if you think of me
As often as I think of you_
I need answers to questions
The main one is_Are we through?
Each night is more lonely_
Days drag on_not wanting to end
I keep trying to push you out of my mind_
Knowing doing that_there's no way I can win.
Tears are drowning my heart
Tears I can't reach to wipe out_
My surviving without you_
I'm beginning to have serious doubt.
Yes, I'm standing next to the piano
Remembering you playing our song
And hoping you'll remember too
And come back home.
