Even Chocolate



What do you do when you lose your best friend,
When the one you turned to for solace and advice has turned away,
When even chocolate won't keep the pain at bay,
When you gave all he would take and offered more than he deserved,
What do you do when you lose your best friend?

What do you do when you feel you can no longer call,
When his number is always busy or he's nowhere to be found,
When you want to leave a message but no longer know what to say,
When even chocolate won't keep the pain at bay,
What do you do when you feel you can no longer call?

What do you do when you find yourself all alone,
When you sit and wonder if he will ever come home,
When you realize too late that he never intended to stay,
When even chocolate won't keep the pain at bay,
What do you do when you find yourself all alone?
