When a heart turns numb and love is gone
No electricity to light up the darkness
No heat to keep you warm at nights
Tears won’t soften a heart like that
Smiles will stir no feelings in it
No words you can speak
No songs you can sing
No apologies you make
No flowers you can bring
That will bring back from grave
The love that has died
It’s water to a plant
That has already dried
It’s food to a child
Who has starved and died
It’s irrelevant.
Tell me why?
Why must you try?
Why, now?
