Empty Promises

I walk out on the balcony

And whisper once again your name

Why can't you be here now

And why did you stop believing?

I run across the beach

And sweat out your touch

Why can't you be here now

And why do I see your silhouette?

I sip down ice-cold water

And relish your remaining flavor

Why can't you be here now

And why do I crave your taste?

Unnumbered days in paradise

With the touch of velvet humidity

But still I long for your touch

And search the empty skies for you

Why can't you be here now

And why did you stop believing in us?
