On and on,
On and on,
Like actors in a play,
You and I
Are living out a lie
Day after day after day.
Always in control,
Playing out the role,
Careful of the things we say.
Nothing shows,
No one knows,
Day after day after day.

Silently, so silently
The accusations fly –
“Where did you...?”
“How on earth could you...?”
“Why did she...?”
“Why didn’t I...?”
Can’t we talk straight out,
Maybe even shout,
But say the things we need to say?
Otherwise,
Something dies,
Day after day after day.
Think back, think back,
Where did it go?
Think back, think back,
How did we end up in this marriage for show?
On and on, on and on,
Like actors trapped in a play,
You and I are living out a lie, day after day after day.
Can’t we talk straight out
Maybe scream and shout,
But say the things we need to say?
Otherwise, something dies, day after day after day.
