Music is the universal language; enjoyed by all. Music lyrics offer many interpretations and it is in this regard that lyrics resemble poetry. In fact, that is what music lyrics are: poetry that is sung. Just like poetry is meant to be verbally spoken to obtain its full appreciation, music lyrics need to be sung.

Do you miss me like I miss you?
Or have you moved on?
Do you lay awake at night
Counting the seconds till dawn?

Do you think about me
And how we had a love so strong?
Do you ever ask yourself
Where did it all go wrong?
