This just drifted in one quiet evening. Don't know from where.
But maybe it speaks for someone somewhere.

APART TOGETHER

Here we are together,
face to face across the table,
talking with each other,
as well as we are able.
We drift through painful pauses.
Don't know what to say.
We both know the cause is -
we're slowly drifting away.

Chorus
How can we be so far apart together ?
Here so close, and still so far apart.
We do our best to try to make it better.
We both know what is missing in the heart.
Love has left the premises - already,
and left us here together,
together - and apart.

I see some old memento of the past.
I feel sad the memory is gone.
Like looking at a stranger in the glass,
the wine has chilled, and "Lonely" is the song.
Who will be the first to say the word ?
Someone might as well release the ghost,
that flutters through these rooms, and is not heard,
Neither of us is a caring host.

Chorus
How can we be so far apart together ?
Here so close, and still so far apart.
We do out best to try to make it better.
We both know what is missing in the heart.
Love has left the premises - already,
and left us here together,
together - and apart.
