B.. Alexander ('81)
The Next Part of Our Lives
We were lying in bed, staring out of the window
The rain was coming down and blurring our outlook
You turned to me for a moment and said
'I cannot wait for the next part of our lives...
The bigger house, the security, the deeper understanding'
I kept my eyes fixed out into the street
Squeezed your hand and thought to myself
I cannot wait for the next part of our lives...
The new freedom, the truer lover showing deeper understanding
But I didn't say a thing to you
Just closed my eyes and bit my lip
Feeling the floor falling out beneath me
That part is over now...
