"Six Months"

© 2006 by Andersen Silva

Now and then, you see a soul and you fall in love,
     You can't do a thing about it...

Six months, babe, since I last saw you;
     Didn't know that we'd soon be through.
Blowin' kisses to me as I left,
     But six months later, I am bereft.

Always knew how to take my breath away;
     Six months later, and I feel every day,
In my heart, and stuck in my throat.
     There's just no way to sugarcoat...

CHORUS:
Even when the skies are blue, not grey,
     There's an ache in my heart, honey, every day.
I'd have gladly taken you for my wife,
     But now I'm alone, and I miss my life.


In the thirteenth month, on the thirteenth day,
     Told me we couldn't go on this way.
Ain't too proud to beg, babe, ain't too proud to cry;
     Had sushi at your house, you and I.

We talked it out, we kissed and made up.
     I left your place happy as a pup.
Together once more, at least for a while,
     I kissed your tears, and I kissed your smile.

CHORUS:
Even when the skies are blue, not grey,
     There's an ache in my heart, honey, every day.
There's no more flame burning in my heart, anymore;
     You're the one my cold blue eyes are searching for.

They say you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone,
     But I did, and without it I go on.
No more joy, in the now or in the new;
     I think only of when I had the solace of you.


CHORUS:
Even when the skies are blue, not grey,
     There's an ache in my heart, honey, every day.
Six months of purgatory, without you,
Tell me, what am I supposed to do?
