Thing's I'm daring to be sharing

I wonder as I wander
In the dark streets late at night
Do you miss me or forget me
When I am out of sight?

And I’m thinking as I’m sinking
Into my saddest thoughts
That maybe now I’m changing
And what we had is lost.

I’m falling as I’m calling
You’re silent telephone
But always you don’t answer
And always I’m alone

So I’m talking as I’m walking
To your voicemails lonely heart
“Could you call me? I’m so lonely.
Please don’t let me fall apart.”

And I’m swaying as I’m saying
“These days my life’s been tough
And I would love to speak to you
But is my love alone enough?”

Now I’m weeping while I’m sleeping
I’m not who I was before
And I wonder if this attitude
Will send you out the door.

I keep crying, keep on trying
To maintain the girl you see
But I can’t be what you expect
That girl was never me

Love this! Need to work on punctuation a little, but the message and rhythm are great!
