Someone Speaks

"Have you read the paper" said the man in the overcoat, "girl of
twenty-one just hung herself, isn't it a shame"
'After all the words have made me feel what I wanted, I am so alone'
is all she left by her bedside
"Have you seen the child who has no name" said the little girl,
"have you seen him playing in the street, hopelessly insane"
After all the tears just caved him in, he still wonders After all
the seconds passed away, I just turned
Have you heard the story at the end of another day? Did it make a
gesture in your soul, did it go away? As you held the promise of the
sun and tomorrow, as you woke to find that you have changed
Now you're older
Someone speaks
You will listen
Someone weeps
Someone speaks
