(1976 / USA)

Anymore...


You say that you love me,
You say that you're here,
You say that I'm not alone,
That I don't have to be anymore...

Where are you when I'm lonely,
Where are you when I'm scared,
Where are you when I need you,
You're most certainly not here anymore...

I know that I'm weak,
I know that I'm scared,
I know that I'm nothing,
Other than all alone anymore...

Do you care what I feel,
Do you care what I want,
Do you care what I need,
It doesn't matter...

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
