Where Are You Now?

  • It came to the end it seems you had heard.
    As we walked the city streets,
    You never said a word.

    When we finally sat down
    Your eyes were full of spite.
    I was desperate, I was weak
    I could not put up a fight.

    But where are you now?
    Where are you now?
    Do you ever think of me
    In the quiet, in the crowd?

    You were strangely less in pain
    Than you were cold.
    Triumphant in your mind
    Of the logic that you hold.

    You said no one would ever know
    The love that we had shared.
    As I took my leave to go
    It was clear you didn’t care.

    And where are you now?
    Where are you now?
    Do you ever think of me
    In the quiet, in the crowd?

    But where are you now?
    Where are you now?
    Do you ever think of me
    In the quiet, in the crowd?

    And I hear of your coming
    And your going in the town.
    I hear stories of your smile,
    I hear stories of your frown.

    And the darkness can descend,
    We can relish all the pain.
    But I know that’s what you love,
    'Cause you know I love the same.

    But where are you now?
    Where are you now?
    Do you ever think of me
    In the quiet, in the crowd?

    But where are you now?
    Where are you now?
    Do you ever think of me
    In the quiet, in the crowd?

    But where are you now?
    Where are you now?
    Do you ever think of me
    In the quiet, in the crowd?
