Pardon Me, Pretty Girl

Pardon me pretty girl
I am sorry I let them 
Ruin the beauty
You have impearled

They have conquered your land
And I have never seen
You smile, since you've become
A slave to their commands

Allowed them to, do those things
Pardon me pretty girl
I am sorry I let them
Rip off your wings

Abuse you
Misuse you
Rape you and laugh as you weep
Beat you to death and
Put your dreams to sleep

Their fingers are marked on your neck
Pardon me pretty girl
I am sorry I let them
Turn you into such a wreck

Never lose hope, beautiful
One day you'll be free
We'll soar in your sky
You and me 

We'll sit in the shades
Of innocence, and your autumn's leaves
As broken songs are sung
By your chilling breeze

We'll laugh with all your colors...

Giggles of chocolate brown
Fiery orange, and intense red
We'll destroy the life of
Icy blue melancholy
That they have lead

We'll swim in your mysterious oceans
And wash off their sins
In a heaven where everything is azure
Only justice wins

We'll nurture your flowers...
 
That gave birth to aromas
I have never smelled
And ignite tranquil emotions
I have never felt

We'll water your emerald trees...
That held me with their
Motherly branches
In my desperate
Times of need

We'll hold your warm sun in our hands...

Watch your waterfalls cascade
Into frozen rivers of hope
That never melt
We'll kill the biterness that
You have felt

As your sunlight holds on
To our eyelashes
We'll nap on rainbows...

Where the only pot of gold
Is made of your past's 
Burnt ashes

Until then I'll wait...
For that day when you shall be free
Pardon me pretty girl
I am sorry I let them
Harm you and me
