2011-08-07 - 12:29 a.m. - checking the phone

i keep checking the phone
as if someone might call
but i've been out of touch
and no one's close enough
to call this late at night
to care if i'm alive
i don't know how
hope can survive

is it habit or hope
that keeps me looking toward the phone
is it habit or hope
that makes me not want to be alone
is it habit or hope
that says love is still somewhere out there
is it habit or hope
that tells me someone may still care
and someone may still share

but the phone does not ring
and no text comes through
the silence is deafening
nothing to do
the proof is everywhere
no one is here to care
nobody is anywhere
no one to share

still i keep checking the phone
as if someone might call
but truth is once again
i have no close friends
to call this late at night
to care if i exist
i could just disappear
and not be missed

so is it habit or hope
that keeps me looking toward the phone
is it habit or hope
that makes me not want to be alone
is it habit or hope
that says love is still somewhere out there
is it habit or hope
that tells me someone may still care
and someone may still share

but the phone does not ring
and no text comes through
the silence is deafening
nothing to do
the proof is everywhere
no one is here to care
nobody is anywhere
no one to share

i keep checking the phone
no one is there
i keep checking the phone
no one is there
