The Ransom

           Each time we're together
          we're a million miles apart.
You see me though I'm never really there.
             Lost in your thoughts
          Fading like yesterday's sun
My words are but shadows, lost to the night
     Your thoughts become your prison
          Held captive by the silence
             I try to pay the ransom
