Drinking in the Pains

Drinking in the Pains

I am compressed by the pressure of my pains in my heart
my life is in the dark , but I wish to live in the light
Oh, I should ride the sea in many darken dreams
that makes the mind sink into the pain of rain
that drinks upon shame and blame of he
that gives so many painful  dreams ,
I will listen to the roaring of the angry sea 
between the world of true testing 
pains the wind will make its cries
that plays on day and night
I will drink in all that I see when I'm lost in darken dreams
Oh, how Dark Angel gives me so much pains
that makes me at times feel I'm about to go insane 
Dark Angel would say 
Come my queen and drink in the pain with me
Dark Angel gave me his hand and we started to dance
the rain of sad autumn poured on down
while behind my ear I could hear the whispers 
of captivity of many 
Oh, I should dance and laugh 
because I will never truly give in 
this will never be how this story ends.
I will stand tall like the might tower 
I will hold that power 
but until then I will dream my dreams
that holds power over me 
oh, how I can hear the howls of the 
crying storms that come my way 
Oh, how I laugh and dance 
among many out in the cold pouring rain,
I could feel cold chains 
wile I take in another drink 
oh , how my spirit sinks 
with throbbing knotted hands 
touch me like the cold winters breeze 
oh , Why do you like to see me bleed ?
Why do you sway over me 
just to give me darken dreams?
I will stroll beyond ancient bounds
chain me up and let’s dance 
into this cold darken dream you give me .
