Quarter ’til Two

Quarter 'til Two

I woke up at dawn

Aching inside

With memories of you

Filling my mind

Their soft shadows painting

Your arms around me

I cried as I thought of how

Good it would be

To be bathed once again

By the warmth of your touch

So many mornings

I’ve wanted so much

To tell you I miss you

Beside me in bed

Despite all the problems

And things we have said

I know you can’t give me

The things that I need

But I’d settle for less

And I’m willing to bleed

For just one more night

Making love like we do

Rocking so gently

At quarter ‘til two

And waking again

At sunrise for more

Why can’t you magically

Appear at my door

Craving the past

The way that I do

Would you be here

If only you knew
