I Wanted You

Sad Brunette

 

Only with my words

Was I good at anything in my life,
Mockingbird songs that always came at night …
And when I couldn’t sing them alone,
And when I couldn’t look anymore at the moon,
And with love, I didn’t know what to do …

I thought of you. And you were the woman
I held in my arms,
The one I tried for with my best voice …
That even when I knew love was only so long,
I kept singing …
I kept singing and singing, because I wanted you.
