For a while

Lost in day to day,

Turned another way

With a laugh, a kind hello

And some small talk with friends I know

I forget that I’m not over you for a while.

A wave, an easy grin,

A smile to put them in,

Got other lives to listen to

And some music that I have to do

I forget that I’m not over you for a while.

Days go by with no empty feeling,

Until I touch my hair and touch my skin

And remember you’re gone.

People say to me, “hey Nina do you need some company?

When you have some time to spend,

Drop around-you need your friends.”

They forget that I’m not over you for a while,

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