So Little Love in the World

Rogers Kenny

One rainy afternoon at Union Station
As I sat alone and waited on my train
I overheard a lover'€™s conversation
Laced with desperation and pain.

I heard a girl say when is your train leavin'€™
The schedule'€™s blurry, something'€™s in my eyes
I heard a boy say I'€™ll just board it early
With a voice some lone drown out goodbye.

I thought there'€™s so little love in the world
There'€™s so little love in the world
With all of those millions of lonely boys and girls
Why is there so little love in the world.

I saw them walk together thro'€™ the station
I saw the girl walk back alone her head held down
Her tremblin'€™ lips the only indication
Of her losin'€™ struggle not to cry.
