I constantly worry,
that soon you will forget.
One day you won't want me,
or remember that we met.
All memories will vanish,
and you won't know my name.
Why bother with me,
when you're on the road to fame?
You'll be touring countries,
and where will that leave us?
Fighting to stay strong,
when it's all love and no lust.
I call, you're always busy,
it's never a good time.
I ask how things are going,
and things are always fine.
But I miss our conversations,
I miss seeing you smile.
All I have right now,
is a phone number to dial.
I worry that you'll leave me,
I'll be far too numb to feel.
Try to ignore the emptiness,
but the pain will be too real.
I could never let this go,
and while you live at the top,
I fear I won't get over you,
be unable to stop.
I worry day and night,
that my predictions will come true.
Because the worst thing that could happen,
would be knowing I lost you.
