Where has it all gone?
I know it was here
But somehow it went away
I hear the voice on the other end of the line saying, "I love you"
Before I know it, I'm saying "I love you, too"
These words have been spoken before
It was always me saying them first
Now the love is gone
Where did it go?
I've tried to find it
It's hiding somewhere
Just below the surface
Maybe it was never there
Maybe the words were used to comfort me
Maybe I just imagined them
For now, I'll just keep looking and listening
Hoping that someday I'll hear a new voice
If the old voice comes back I will welcome it
But until it does, I must go on
