Falling, free falling
So far from me
Totally abandoned
Detached, lost at sea.

Your head on my pillow
My hand in yours
Longing to hold you
How can they be sure?

Slipping away
What can I do?
Nothing to say
What’s happened to you?

Running from me
Too far from home
Anxious and scared
Scared of being alone.

Out of control
Breathless and weak
Unable to hear
Unable to speak.

Follow the light
Look toward the sun
How could this be over
Over and done?

Falling, free falling
Taken from me
Feeling abandoned
Detached, lost at sea.
