From the recording NEW DAY
Imagine a man in his fifties falling apart in his own world: His money is gone...his success remains in tact only through his wisdom of craft. Imagine a young woman searching for a muse: a subject of inspiration and guidance. This is the story of a powerful and ultimately doomed internet romance.
What Can I do
© 2005 Rachel Lynn Sebastian
I feel like giving up, I’m not living up to you
Guess there’s no second chance our short romance is through
Suppose I never knew what I could hold you to
So, I’ve been living lies, there’s no denying truth.
Tell me…what can I do?
Help me understand what you’re putting me through
Give me hope… I need you to…I feel like giving up.
I guess I don’t know… how to love you
Yesterday, I tried to walk away for good.
I blocked your number, dried my eyes…but, I just couldn’t.
You see, how can I leave a man so dear to me?
Am I waiting ‘round for what may never be?
I called you again on the phone, I know, I can’t leave it alone.
But, there’s too many things that I need to hear;
Too many things I’m finding unclear.
You told me you loved me; that I made you happy,
you said, not to worry. So, now, tell me how to believe.
I am trying to understand why I can’t let you go.
We’ve barely kissed and we’ve nothing to show.
But, I stay anyway, ‘cause the one thing I know
is my heart and my soul are invested.
Yes, my heart and my soul are invested.
