Desktop and tea and that pink lamp

I listen to the slow songs.
You I met only yesterday.
All the songs talk about you!
How can I change the tunes?
Because I cannot change my heart...

The pink light glows all around us,
"Can pink be so good?", they asked.
In the white lights of the mall...
And the endless polished surfaces
I see you smile.. or do I hear?

The tracks keep changing
In the background, but the tune is the same.
It plays over and over and over again.
"I pray"? Yes I do... hopeful or not;
Its just five days away... you are just five days away...

I have gone back to that old first feeling?
Of a decade back maybe?
"Run free" I shall not...
You can take me till the end of time.
The victory score plays in the end.

The drums grow louder...
The waves rise higher...
But the tune remains right there at the core.
Ask me once and I shall give you more...
Do sudden sunrises lead to a day?

The aspirations don't raise any bars;
They take you in their stride.
They love you... and so do I
"Mistletoe and wine"? I need none
Just stay right here... again and again.
