Next Time

Next time
maybe you'll reach out to me sooner
and all your years of patient searching
will be nothing but a fading memory
from a previous life

Next time
maybe I'll speak up louder
and all my years of quiet waiting
will be nothing but a dreary nightmare
from the night before

Next time
maybe you'll have the believer's heart
and I'll have the gambler's heart
and maybe we'll both win

Next time
maybe I won't be silent
and you won't be afraid

Next time
