Are you sleeping?
Still dreaming,
Still drifting off alone,
I'm not leaving,
With this feeling.
It better best be told

How in the world did you come to be such a lazy love?
It's so simple,
And fitting.
The path that you are on,
We're not talking,
There's no secrets.
Just a note that you have gone.

All that you ever owned,
Is packed in the hall to go,

How am I supposed to live without you?
Wrong words said in anger
And you were gone.

I'm not listening for signals,
It's all dust on the shelf,
You're still working,
Still counting,
Still buried in yourself.

How in the world did we come,
To have such an absent love?

How am I supposed to live without you?
Wrong words said in anger
And you were gone.
How am I supposed to live without anyone?

How in the world did you come to be such a lazy love?
And where did you go?
