Black and Blue Heart Melody

It doesn’t matter what I say
You don’t listen anyway

Wipe away those silent tears away
No more sun ~ just rainy days
Dreams & laughter don’t linger here
The vibrant smile has lost its cheer
Inside the box is where I stay
Visions of heaven swept away

Golden dreams all turned to gray
A heart full of love - now foul decay
Broken memories shatter to the floor
You walk away & slam the door

Hate echo’s loud for all to hear
Embarrassed eyes try not to stare
Quietly that too fades away
One more day bleeds into one more day

Love was here where did it go
The question asked ~ but no one knows
Was it ever here to stay
Or was it just a game to play

I look for answers in your eyes
Seeking truth and finding lies
It doesn’t matter what I say
You don’t listen anyway

You whisper love into my ear
Promises I fail to hear
Empty words fall to the ground
It’s just your voice, you like the sound
They leave a smile upon your face
Same as the devil fell from grace

I pray for peace & nothing more
To embrace the darkness of the shore
It doesn’t matter what I say
You don’t listen anyway

I chose the path I ride along
Now my heart sings this weary song
