it’s a long list

that I cannot find the time

put pen to paper

write your names on the line

oh my loves

how you let me down

leaving me in times of need

left me standing there

my feet dangling empty air

kicking at nothing

oh my loves

how you let me down

waiting at the gate

standing wistful best clothes on

I looked around

& you were not there

already gone

oh my loves

how you let me down

ready for the race

listening for the starters gun

first up in the relay

you to pass the baton

already going for home

oh my loves

how you let me down
