lyrics

Little pretty came to see me
A smile on her lips
I could look straight into her eyes
Excitement in her smile
But is it wise?
She’s yet to care
Wagering her hopes on me
She’s reaching out at last
She’s done her deeds and ran

Waiting for the day
She has more to say

What’s been said and what’s been lost
I once had them all
I could now still see their words afloat
Time has reigned I’m barely here
They, too, are barely there
Spellcheck’s messing up their words apart

Little pretty never came now
Cold auburn lips
I’d see her pass among the crowd
A whiff of overcoat
Tried to be wise, learned the hard way
She’s learned the art of getting on
To press and to forget
Left me here to wait

Has it all gone by?
Did the words go awry?

What’s been said and what’s been lost
I once had them all
I could now still see their words afloat
Time has reigned I’m barely here
They, too, are barely there
Spellcheck’s messing up their words apart
