Locked Up, In Love


"...This call is from a correctional facility and is subject to monitoring and recording..." is how every conversation starts
before we take turns pouring out our hearts
And for the next twenty minutes, nothing else matters except the beautiful sound of your voice
I tell you I love you, you say that you miss me
And that nothing's the same with me gone
You tell me you need me and explain your struggles
I get pissed that I can't help and wish that I was there
Even if it was just to cuddle
I tell you this will all be over soon
Just hoping that it's true, and hating every single day away from you
We both knew this was coming
But neither one of us expected it to be so hard
When I was out we were both blinded by love and shards
Poor decisions and bad friends are the cause of this
And now the only thing I miss is you
I hate that we're in this situation and can't wait for it to end

"...You have 60 seconds remaining..."
I can't wait till you're in my arms again
We exchange words of love until we get to speak again...
"Thank you for using Global Tel Link..."
