As Time Goes By (C) 6-17-07

Rating: 3.9

I wait and I wait to here what you say
Wonderin' when you're gonna answer me
I sit and I sit all through the night and the day
Still wondering when you're gonna answer me

I'm still sittin' here after days go by
Wonderin' if what you told me was a lie

I don't understand what's going on
How long does it take to say yes or no
It seem years has gone by as the river's flowing on and on
Now I'm afraid your answer is going to be no

I can't breathe from the anticipation
I would call you but I mustn't show my desperation

Weeks have gone by and I'm feelin' heartbroken
But in the middle of it I'm startin' not to care
I'm gettin' upset because you haven't yet spoken
Until I find out that the whole time you weren't there

Now I understand I feel sad instead
If only I would've known you were dead

It's weird how fantasy can take over a lot
Even though it didn't happen you still try
You want things to change right on the spot
But you'll have a lot to change as time goes by

As Alexander Pope said 'Hope springs eternal in the human breast', but how often have we confused hope with fantasy and illusion. Been there, done that, maybe about a million times - hoping, when there was nothing to hope for. Great poem, Corey.
