 Without Rhyme Or Reason

An Echo Falls .....


An echo falls on silent ear,
The words spoke loud,
I do not hear,
Nor do I wish to see the sign,
It's déjà vu,
It's closing time,

And pointless now,
A love you crave,
You gather stones,
And save,
And save,

A shelter built, a hideaway,
You play the game,
The lovers play,

And synchronised,
The hearts that beat,
The pounding steps,
On hollow street,
You seek a heart,
The heart is gone,
An echo falls,

It's gone,
It's gone.
