“You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take.” -Wayne Gretzy

My love is lonely
Sitting all alone by itself
Like an old forgotten book
Up on an empty shelf

My heart beats to the sound of your drum
I can't help as it begins to run
The butterflies in my stomach cease to exist
I’m going crazy it's your smile that I miss

Ever since we went our separate ways
My heart has been by its lonesome self
High up on that forgotten shelf

No one dares to check this book out
Or even read the summary
For the cover is no longer shiny
I just wish someone would read
It is love that I need

I can no longer go on
I can't take it anymore
This pain inside I have to ignore

Ever since we went our separate ways
You’ve lost your gaze
No longer interested in this boring book
