Face the wall

They met in rainy late December
in the place they'd always met
and she looked as bright as burning ember
but Tommy just looked wet
and he didn't laugh at all
turned to face the empty wall again.

When she held him love was in his eyes
but it never touched his brain
and she couldn't play the way he could
'cause she didn't know the game
and she didn't laugh at all
turn to face the empty wall again.

And then the summer came then winter
but she didn't really care
and she hadn't seen his face forever
'cause she knew he wasn't there
and she didn't laugh at all
turned to face the empty wall again.

So she let them go their separate ways
'cause she knew she might as well 
and their story fades down all the days
now there's nothing left to tell
 and she doesn't laugh at all
turn to face the empty wall again.

They met in rainy late December
in the place they'd always met
and she looked as bright as burning ember
but Tommy just looked wet
and he didn't laugh at all
turned to face the empty wall again.
And she didn't laugh at all
turned to face the empty wall again.
