JUST BEING FRIENDS

Girl, you mean
everything to me
I'm so sorry for
whatever I've done
The day you said 
goodbye to me
I lost it all now I'm
completely undone

I can't think 
without your words
I can't see since 
you've hid your pen
I can't dance
without your song
I can't breathe
just being friends

Can't light a flame
just being warm
Can't build a home
if there's not a plan
Can't touch a heart
you won't let me see
Girl, I can't breathe
if I'm not your man

I can't think 
without your words
I can't see since 
you've hid your pen
I can't dance
without your song
I can't breathe
just being friends

Everyday 
is like eternity
I want you more
than words can say
And maybe you
will change your mind
Oh, I'm praying 
it'll be today..

Cause I can't think 
without your words
I can't see since 
you've hid your pen
I can't dance
without your song
I can't breathe
just being friends

I can't breathe
Just being friends

    I agree with Charmaine, this reminds me of poets who were here when I joined, but are no longer. I'm lucky to still have contact with one of them outside of The Soup.... I hope she will be back to inspire you soon. A nice flow to this expressive piece. Really great writing, Dave!

    Vivid! It makes one think about the saying.." You don't miss the water until the well runs dry." Very, Soul-Searching.

    Change "girl" to "boy" and this is what I'm living right now. You captured my feelings perfectly

    Dave, A great read and a great write!! I like the syncopated and repetitive use of "I can't" throughout the verses. Very Well-Done!! Best Always, Gary
