Something of Value

(Alpha Cat)
February 20, 2002
The morning breaks so cruelly
taste of you still in my mouth
And all my hope
has fallen to it’s knees

You tease me with affection - blind me with compassion
and blame it on the flesh

To hear you speak of leaving
and your fondness for my kiss
that moment when you opened which somehow I have missed

What kind of chance was this? That came when I was sleeping
and vanished in the mist

What flows between us
light of love, expressed and then denied
Was I always yours? Were you ever mine?

So I know that talk is free
but still worth more than all your gin-induced confessions
and you think girls like me, we’re a dime a dozen

But now we’ve worked too hard
to make something of value
and let it go so cheap

What flows between us
light of love
expressed and then denied
Was I always yours? Were you ever mine?

What flows between us
love of life, expressed and then denied
Was I always yours?
Were you ever mine?
