(paul foglino-tom meltzer)
you won’t tell me that you love me
i’ve told you so many times, but you won’t
now i can see if you won’t say that you love me
maybe it’s because you don’t
why can’t you see how you hurt me?
is my love in vain?
i call my pain by your name
you say you don’t like blowing smoke
you say it’s only words, that ain’t what love’s about
but now i can see if you ain’t blowing smoke at me
that’s because the fire is out
i hear your name, the way it rings
it’s come to mean so many things
like loneliness, tears, and misery
could it be that you don’t care?
is there really nothing there?
is there a hole in your heart where love should be?
