Dawn and Dave: Music

Absent

This is a song about a love that had to be left behind, but that survives the time and distance of the separation.
You’ve been absent from my life for years, yet you linger in my mind.
I can’t believe that you won’t leave my heart.
Yet I haven’t cried a thousand tears. It’s not a love of that kind.
There’s just an empty ache that we’re apart.

And I know that it makes no sense. But it makes no difference --
Love plays by it’s own rules.
And I know that this is only a fool’s heart feeling lonely.
Well, count me among the fools. One of love’s lost and lonely fools.

So I try a million clever ways to think of something else.
But my heart has seen it all before.
‘Cause it only takes a word, a phrase, and I’m lost inside myself
With your memory, with your allure.

And I know that it makes no sense. But it makes no difference --
Love plays by it’s own rules.
And I know that this is only a fool’s heart feeling lonely.
Well, count me among the fools. One of love’s lost and lonely fools.

You’ve been absent from my life for years, yet you linger in my mind.
I can’t believe that you won’t leave my heart.
