Jo Marie Takes the Knife
Have we become so distant, that I am able to walk by without a glance?
Simply disappear without a trace
And you wouldn't care, nor take notice.
It is my fault that we became this way?
Am I the reason why your eyes no longer search for mine?
Am I the reason why your arms no longer ach for me?
The reason your kisses are no longer urgent?
Why you no longer fight for my attention
The reason why I have to struggle for your acceptance
We can sit in the same room, and touch but yet feel miles apart
You may not noticed, but its there
You can feel it in the air,
Can I possibly close this gap, or will it always be there
Looming over us like the Grand Canyon?
If I caused this can I fix it?
