A LONELIER LAUGHTER

Some say life’s just a game

A roll of the dice

People come and go

Some stay for a while

Some we leave behind

 

Since the day you went your way 

I’ve been wondering

How many times, have I met someone?

Who will always be around?

 

You painted a picture of a world

You got me thinking

The colors left traces in my soul

They’ll shine as life’s mysteries unfold

 

You saw the world through the eyes of someone

Someone larger than the two of us

You had a gift brought life to the moment

Why do I feel this way?

 

But I know…

You gave hope to so many people

You saw what the world was coming to

Here, I’m left with a lonelier laughter

Then why do I feel this way?

 

We lived through, the most glorious times

Never asked our selves why?

It was so natural, an incredible ease

We almost got it right

 

We took our chances, placed our bets

On opposite sides

That was just a game we saw it through

Then back together again 

 

You painted a picture of a world

You got me thinking

The colors left traces in my soul

They’ll shine as life’s mysteries unfold

 

You saw the world through the eyes of someone

Someone larger than the two of us

You had a gift brought life to the moment

Why do I feel this way?

 

But I know…

You gave hope to so many people

You saw what the world was coming to

Here, I’m left with a lonelier laughter

Then why do I feel this way?

 

You saw the world

You saw the world

You saw the world
