  1. The Text

From the recording Coming Apart At The Dreams

Lyrics

VERSE
A declaration of love from the ghost of childhood past
Fading now into the blue as reality finds its path
Living without you; it’s so unreal what life can bring
Movin’ on just does not mean a thing

VERSE
Desire runs through me still as lightning strikes my soul
All I can think of now is “where did you go?”
Lovers of like mind, two of a kind for all time
But by text you declined

CHORUS
I got the “Dear John” text you sent to my phone
Gone — love, lover, friend — by touching “send” you said goodbye
And, yes, I took the high road, let you go, but my soul moaned
If only the text was a dream, no need to wonder why

VERSE
In the still of the night, you cruise through my veins
This burning desire is such a terrible pain
No way I can describe the hurt I feel inside
When love goes wrong, there’s just nowhere to hide

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Please tell me the text was a dream and you’ll be here tonight
