'Listening to Elvis, thinking it over'

I wish I knew what to say

I look for words

But they just escape me

 

I look for a sign, everyday

But the faith I feel, it fades away

 

Set the alarm, wake up and keep on going

But all the while, my tears are flowing

 

What about the love and joy that I felt in my heart?

Please don’t tell me we’re destined to depart?

 

Elvis’ dulcet tones, makes its way right through my bones

It comforts me, yet I still feel alone

 

Your name presents itself on my telephone

But my soul wishes that you would be gone

I haven’t felt like your ‘one’ in so very long.

Keep thinking 'How great thou art' Genevieve... ask Elvis.
