Lyrics:

Hey! How was your day?
How do you feel?
Hope you’re okay.
You look so sublime.
The picture you paint
Will last me a lifetime.

Chorus
When I look at you,
I know that I’ll cry,
‘Cause only the whole of you
Could ever satisfy me.
When I look at you,
Well, I see everything I’ll ever need,
But you’re leaving me here,
Alone, forever.

No! You know I can’t smile,
And your effort to make me,
It’s pretty futile.
Go! Just start walking away,
While I stand here aghast
At my naiveté.

Chorus
When I look at you,
I know that I’ll cry,
‘Cause only the whole of you
Could ever satisfy me.
When I look at you,
Well, I see everything I’ll ever need,
But you’re leaving me here,
Alone, forever.

Epilogue
Hey! How was your day?
How do you feel?
Hope you’re okay.
