A Little Longer

Walking down the street

You hope to find someone to meet

That will change your life forever

When you catch his eye

You look inside another woman's lover

And you can't seem to look away

So you stay a little longer

To find another fix

To make your hole seem better

A lonely but bearable life

When a life is lost

Flowers die, babies cry

A spirit flies back home

But a part of you fades

It's something that happens to every soul

And nothing can fill it just the same

So you stay a little longer

To find another fix

To make your hole seem better

A lonely but bearable life

When you sit alone

At a coffee shop

Only a latte to fill the other spot

You reflect back on your life

A lonely soul and no one stayed to fight with you

The only man that's there

Sits upon the lonely chair

And says "come child for I forgive you."
