You see me for what I am not.
I am not like her.
The wings that held me up once were torn by emotion.
My eyes, amber velvet turned opaque green by tears.
My face, once radiant and smiling, now somber and weary by hatred.
This pain stamped an emotional burn upon my life.
Look at me; open your eyes to the sunshine that forever awaits.
A chained heart, sealed with eternal pain…
Breaking the shattered illusion where life was bliss.
Seeing the sun through the mist, through dark clouds…
Shackled forever to this misery, to this hatred.
Old wounds disturbed once again…
But now she’s hollow inside
Filled up with drugs and alcohol
And drained of all her pride
As good times always seem to fall,
And memories go out with the tide
Her cares and feelings grow so small
And her soul becomes fates bride
She tried to get ahead in life,
But now she’s lost her mind
She used to have a conscience
But dignitys gone blind
She gave her whole life away
To those who can’t give back
And now she’s left with nothing
Stuck in a world that faded black
I reach for you as you drift away
Your stare is full of comfort, so peaceful
I find solace in your arms
I sit on the windowsill, writing
Anticipating your embrace, your soft smile
Yet I am jaded in your love
I am left behind in the dust
I cannot get up to run away
Your love shackles me, it’s a weight tied
So heavy around my ankles
It prevents me from running
But my acidic tears burn the shackles away
And I am free once again
I will not succumb to your sweet imprisonment
I will not surrender to your pacifying touch
I will not be enticed by your corruptive love
I will not be broken again
I see the stars in the lights.
I see the what we once had, and what we
You see the curtains draped in front of me.
You see the sun come up alone.
You want to show me just what you can see,
and I, I turn away.
You hear my words, you hate my words, I
hate you too.
through your eyes.
I change conversation thought for you…
I throw a look that you can’t catch from
far behind, and you, you turn away.
But don’t feel bad ’cause you do to me all
the things I do to you…
We’ll travel it on a dark stormy night.
We’ll travel it without light!
Oh we’ll travel it in the moonlight!
We’ll travel this lonely road
to it’s happy endings.
Every lonely road has a happy ending.
Sometimes the lonely road seems endless for some of us.
No matter were we wand up in life
You will always have a special place in my heart
You will forever and always be a true and dear friend to me
Even if we never fall in love
Or If we split apart
You will always be remembered in my heart as someone Who cared?
Some one who was true and honest?
And someone I could trust
Someone who never hurt me
And liked me for me
You are a true friend
I hold my true friends
Near and dear to my heart
If fate and life pulls us apart
We’ll always be remembered in my heart
And if our hearts are true and dear I’ll be seeing you.
Know of true love
they pine away for it
Lonely teardrops falling
silently and quickly
creeps down my face.
only lonely hearts need true love.
Make A Prayer
In a hut made of tin and clay
A small boy dreams away
Of clean water and a meal a day
And not to fear mines as he plays each day
Somewhere dark and out of the way
Aids has found yet another prey
To save his life he just couldn’t pay
Tell me what we’re going to do
For our brothers in Durban
For our sisters in Darfur
Show me what we’re going to do
Are we just going to sit there?
Nice and cosy on our armchairs
Will we not even make a prayer?
