______________________________

I've been standing on
this scorched earth too long
and I've got the lonely heart
separation blues.

A mummy, fixed and dry, am I
waiting for Thee, for Thee.

I'm tired of these chilly, polar extremes,
full of fire one day
empty as ice the next.

Nowhere left to turn anymore,
just waiting for Thee, for Thee
to burn right through this circle of fear

and end these cold dark
lonely heart
separation blues.
