SONGWRITING

Loss

By: Laura Alford

I didn’t cry till I sat down
In the still and quiet
On my side of our old town

I wanted to rant; I wanted to rage
But I just ached and watched
You return to your velvet cage

What’s good and right?
What’s good and right?
What good is right?
What good is right?
When I’m alone at night?

You tried living without them
I know how that goes
Having your heart out on a limb

But I didn’t cry till I sat down
In the still and quiet
Over on my side of town

What’s good and right?
What’s good and right?
What good is right?
What good is right?
When you’re lonely every night?
