Aa Harvey

A no answer machine

A no answer machine

 

 

Our basic instincts are to find love and run through the woods.

From the tree’s we climb down to walk like a man;

No longer on all fours.

Now we do not need to give thanks, for the food we have;

We deserve to be full.

All beautiful art fades eventually,

As we all become too dull.

 

 

No more to say…

I let it all just slide away.

Nothing will be relevant on the final day.

Keeping up with the Joneses;

Mobile phones are diseases.

Conversation is dead;

Only speak if it pleases.

 

 

Couple’s councilor, I could not manage to go.

So come or go, or let me go, if you think that I would care.

Love is not amazing anymore,

I would say it is just so, so.

Why would I bother speaking to you, when you are no longer there?

 

 

Phone on silent;

She is a no answer machine.

No reply necessary;

The end of the dream.

    Sad, but true!

      "I've been sleepless at night,
      'Cause I don't know how I feel.
      I've been waiting on you,
      Just to say something real.
      There's a light on the wrong and I think you know,
      Morning has come and I have to go.

      I don't know why, I don't know why,
      We need to break so hard.
      I don't know why we break so hard.

      But if we're strong enough to let it in,
      We're strong enough to let it go.
      Let it all go, let it all go,
      Let it all out love.

      If I look back to the start, now, I know.
      I see everything true.
      There's still a fire in my heart, my darling,
      But I'm not burning for you.
      We've started it wrong and I think you know,
      We waited too long, now I have to go...

      I don't know why we break so hard…

      Who says truth is, beauty after all?
      And who says love should break us when we fall?

      But if we're strong enough to let it in,
      We're strong enough to let it go.
      Let it all go, let it all go…"
