THE UNSPOKEN WORDS
I saw you today just for one split second
You were walking down the street in your usual masculine stride
I noticed the faint color of grey in your temples as my eyes scanned across your handsome face
The same seductive blue eyes, and lips that were always so inviting

I sat there in my car thinking back to the good times
Our times, filled with passion, love and endless pleasure
I tried to remember what happened to change us, two people who lived for the next minute together
I could only think of one moment, one circumstance, one disaster

I thought you cheated, I found out later you didn't
Pride prevented me from saying the three words that could have saved us
I could have told you "I was wrong" but the words just wouldn't come
Now I am alone without you, your future is with another

Maybe this is the time to STOP, call your name, tell you my true feelings
I don't know what to do!
The light just changed, I'm being pushed along by the traffic
Once more I missed my chance to tell you I still love you
That every minute without you is torture, I need you in my life
Once again you are gone, and once again I didn't say the unspoken words
