Lost Love

When I dream about you,

Everything is blue;

The walls turn to ice,

Dripping tears down the stairs.

I walk the frozen hallways,

My breath a cloud of pain,

But I keep trudging on–

I thought I heard my name.

  7. I like the idea of this being a song. I thought it might fit with the music for Missing You, so I listened to the song and imagined hearing your words to the music. When I got to the line that says, “I thought I heard my name”, John Waite is singing “I hear your name”. Really! Try it!
