Sink Love

Sink Love

Loving you through a sink is hard to do

When all I can do is talk to you

Yeah, the days go on into the night

As we sit and talk about what is right

It is hard to make a connection

without any physical affection

You can hear me laugh and cry

But you can't be there to dry my eyes

Loving you through a sink is hard to do

When all I can do is talk to you
