It's Been Awhile

It's been awhile since you were here. 
How're you doing. 
I'm happy to see you.

Yeah, you look good.
Looking good my lady.
Always looking good.
Always did, always will.

Such a choice woman.
Pure perfection.
To me.

We had a special thing going on.
Remember that. Remember us. 
We were special.

Of course. 
Yes, of course I still adore you.
My own sweet one.
My own.
We were one, one together.
Of course.
That doesn't end.

I am baby. 
I'm remembering. 
But you left me, sweets.
You went away.

I wondered what'd happened.
No goodbyes.
Nothing to let me know what happened.

Why would I hate you baby.
Why would I.
Life comes and makes things complicated.
So complicated.

I understand. 
Yes, I do.

I was waiting. 
You know that, don't you.
I was waiting for you here.
Always waiting,
and hoping.

Never losing hope.
Never losing the love.
It doesn't just stop.
Not for me.
No, not for me.

What about you.
What about you baby.
What about you.

Did the love end.
Did you lose it.

Why are you here now.
I can't play this again.
No, I really can't do it again.

So hard,
but you know that.

He did it to you.
He did it and then you did to me.

Faded away.
Gone when I awoke,
and reached for you, and you weren't there.

Take you back.

That's what I've always wanted.
I want only that, my little one,
I want only that.
I'll take you back. 
I'll let you in, let you into my life again.

You know,
it has to be different now.
It has to be.

I won't play anymore.
I won't let you play with me anymore.
You must know I can't do that again.

Yes, alright, hug me tight.
Hold me tight while I feel you once again.

I'm good.
No, no tears.
Don't cry.

I'll let you in again.
You're my baby girl.
You're mine.

It's good.
It'll be good once more.
One more time,
and we'll be ourselves at last.

At last.

But promise.

I can't play the game again.
