In the heat of the night
When everything is cool    Is when
I miss her
The most

It was raspberry tea
Peppermint - I don't know

Lips wet longer when an afternoon
Came after
And went like clouds before clouds before…

You know
It is interesting to meet some…
Someone you can
You can
  You know
I don't know

We touched, like others
Like all others
Nothing new
Nothing new anymore
You want it so much
To be new
New for old is what they say

What do these old hands hold?
Old …
You want it so much
To hold
It slips
You never did hold on very well
Its like its like

I don't know, you want it so much

I miss her
