4 for Valentine's Day: Crash and Burn by Geoffrey Landis

Crash and Burn


Love starts with kisses and ends with tears.
They know your secrets. And you know theirs.

I'm tired and sad of feeling tired and sad.
This song makes me miss you and what we had.

crash and burn,
live and learn.

And that's why you'll always be crying,
And I’m quite aware that we are dying.

It's late, and I want to talk to you so bad.
I'm so confused and frustrated, and a lot sad.

crash and burn,
live and learn.

And I am so depressed, again, I tried to call last night.
I’m blind in the darkness and can only see the light.

I'm tired and sad of feeling tired and sad.
This song makes me miss you and what we had.

crash and burn,
live and learn
crash and burn,
live and learn.

 --Geoffrey A. Landis & the internet
