I Stayed Up Late

I stayed up late to wait for you
the light from the other room
the shadows danced around me
they knew before I knew

I waited up for you to come
our love was smaller then
the walls were there for me
they knew and I did too

I hated everything I did to you
the truth was hidden then
the voices softly spoke to me
“she knew, she knew, she knew”

I laid my head down next to you
but you were already gone
the silence was all around
