Phone calls... flowers
I wondered for hours
Just a mistake?
Or ten years too late?

Suddenly, you see so clearly
Everything you never said
Everything you should have seen but
Turned away instead

What if you had asked me
What if I was wrong?
What if you had blocked the door and begged me please
To carry on?
What if you gave 1-2-3-20 reasons
Why I shouldn't leave?
You couldn't push these walls apart far enough
To give me room to breathe

Sorry, shamefaced
Lonely and disgraced
But you'll change, just wait
Ten years too late

Once upon a time you sparkled
Like no one I'd ever met
Now that spark's a dim reflection
Of the TV set...


All those flowers
Dried up in hours
Not me, held on
Ten years too long



from Acrophobe, released April 16, 2010
