A Modern Romance

image

You say come play
Now don’t say
Baby I love you
Darling why would you
Do that to us

These days
No strings is the thing
So honey believe me
If you wanna see me
Don’t make a fuss

Quit making claims
Anchors and chains
To keep me
Let’s play a modern romance
Don’t sweat it
Just take a chance

Let’s play
The modern way
But don’t say I love you
And I won’t tell
How I need you so much

I need your kiss
How I need to feel your touch

The Day She Had To Go

image

It’s just the buttons on her coat
Fastened close upon her throat
It’s a kiss just as the whistle blows
It’s the tip left on the plate
The station clock just striking eight
It’s just a memory of the day she had to go

It’s the case I had to fix
I’m sure that it was full of bricks
It held everything in it that she could throw
The way she dragged it on the train
In the pouring rain
It’s just a memory of the day she had to go

It was the silence of the birds
And my unspoken words
All the things I just assumed that she would know
It’s my heart’s biggest regret
It’s just the worst thing yet
It’s just a memory of the day she had to go
