The shine went away- somewhere among the Martinis- I lost you. You disappeared in a Vodka Mist. Why didn’t you stay? For years I wanted you! For years I needed you! I know it’s hard, to live that is. But why did you run away? We were going to hurt together. Now, I just dream of your arms around me, your voice, your touch, maybe one more sunset, maybe one more day with you. Some memories just won’t die. But for now, I’m sad because I lost you. Somewhere among the Martinis!
