Motions

Moving through the motions
One slow day at a time
Hoping to find the passions

she once had
Before life passes her by

Come back my love
So far away
Don’t let fear break you
Come back and play.

Moving through the motions
Her body next to mine
Close and warm I smell her here yet
A million miles away

Moving through the motions
Her laughter less I hear
Once full of joy and silliness
Now serious and sad

Come back my love
So far away
Don’t let fear break you
Come back and play.

Moving through the motions
I wonder when she’ll wake
From this sleepless dream she’s in to
Love another day.
