S.O’L.

She came into my life just like the flu
I could not fight
Just when you think you've gotten so immune
You're up all night

I still have these dreams about you
And I know there's nothing I can do
To make you be near me
Susan O'Leary

I have not counted all 300 days
She has been gone
But still I am aware that in her place
Nothing has grown

Still I toss and I turn
And there's a fever that burns
I think you can hear me
Susan O'Leary
Susan O'Leary

And like a junkie waiting for the fix
I shake and sweat
Recovery for me is not so quick
I can't forget

Now like some migratory fish you swim
To warmer seas
But if you ever come upstream again
Please think of me

I still have these dreams about you
And I know there's nothing I can do
To make you be near me
Susan O'Leary
Susan O'Leary
