Lost in day to day, turn another way

With a laugh, a kind hello, some small talk with those I know

I forget that I'm not over you for a while

A wave an easy grin, a smile to put them in

With other lives to listen to and some work I've got to do

I forget that I'm not over you for a while

Days go by with no empty feeling until I remember you're gone

People say to me, you need company

When you have some time to spend, drop around and meet a friend

They forget that I'm not over you for a while

They forget that I'm not over you for a while...
