Everything is silent

everything is silent since you have left
don’t know what to do, don’t know what to say
feeling so low and so heavy like heft
my inspiration’s gone, life seems so grey
I am sorry, our love has gone astray
never say it out loud, don’t want to hear
wish I could turn back the clock, as I pray
I’d change my ways, I’d do anything dear
I’ve learned my lessons, that, to me, is clear
And with me, I wish you to be back here*
