Fearing a loneliness

Tick, tock, tick, tock,

fearful tidings from a open-faced clock

I'm waiting and watching at the kitchen door

hoping I won't have to keep hiding no more

emotions are spent, my thoughts are all drivel

tired of keeping my head on a swivel

always hoping, looking over my shoulder

fighting fear feels like Sisyphus and the boulder

I had love for a minute, now she's gone away

I swear I tried my best to convince her to stay

She told me there was no emotion inside

I heard those words and the last light in me died

There's no justice in love, no peace and no reason

just passing fancies and the delights of the season

murder ain't legal, but heartbreak, that flies

no penalty for taking the joy from your eyes

I've gotten nothing left to give, that much is basic

all I can do now is turn to my fear, time to face it.

Lyric of the Day #18Elvis Costello'sWatching the Detectives

You think you're alone until you realize you're in it

Now fear is here to stay, love is here for a visit

They call it instant justice when it's past the legal limit
