Single & Lonely

No calls, No texts, especially at night,


Things are easy to do,

Easy as riding a bike.


Can go here, Go there, Whatever feels right,

Nothing is too much stress,

When there is no need,

To fight. 


Laughs, Tears, Adventures, Spending money,

There is nothing too tight,

Freedom & Desire,

Maybe you'll get lucky tonight.


Hangovers, Come downs, 

Spent a lot of money - god I wasn't tight,

Working all week, Very hard,

Bills to pay, Alright, Alright.


Home alone often, 

No words spoken, This is shite,

Switch off to the feeling inside,

Sinking feeling, Again this is so shite.


No-one to hold, Skin to touch,

Watching blue movies in bed....I just might,

Wake up in the morning,

Familiar scene, This feeling isn't right.


Looking for love in all the wrong places,

Tinder, Bumble, swipe left,  Swipe right,

Go on a date, Its easy to do,

I wonder if I'll score tonight.


Lacking in love, from a close companion,

Search again, This is a mighty fight,

When it comes, Don't abuse this feeling,

Cherish it, Saviour it, Like a star - so bright. 


My time has gone, It's ticking,

Too fast alright,

Settle in this journey,

Get a good lady, Her name is .........
