Across the Wires

Talk to me in words, so I may understand

The way you feel about me

As you hold my hand

Through the space of miles

Through the throng of smiles

I hear the whisper in my ear

Across the wires

In the lonely nights, with no one around

Just the click of typing

The only sound

As words are written and exchanged

Upon the page

Brought to life by imagination

In a technical age

Just want to know, just want to feel

A sense of something real

In a heart locked away

Broken by the hurtful things

So many people say

Never meant to hurt you

Never meant to harm

Yet, still they betray
