Dr. Hardy was never late bringing back her reports. Stacey began tapping her foot anxiously. This can’t be good… ...

    I look up to the sky on a cloudy day Wind pulling at my hair and stinging my face I walk the tracks and graffiti the walls Looking back at an old familiar face The smoke is rising, searching for me Wisps are reaching, fingers craving for me And it’s all calling me by name Saying, “Come he...

    I ask you, "Do you love me?" And you say, "Maybe." Then by mistake you call me 'baby' We dance hand in hand Past a Rock and Roll band Down Main Street And we talk about future plans Until we reach my front porch And you tell me not to go Say we're missing ...
