I reach out I strive within I simmer and simmer And find hearts leaden But steps don't falter And breaths come ragged Muscles cry out And legs give way Wings I yearn for Things I yearn for A little bliss truly But something lucid To keep me so So I stand up Head held high And find myself a bit short Of the cry But another step rises From beneath to forward Another step begins from death To a new one Sand turns blood red Fire seeps in And fire burns from within Air still brushes Forcing tears To my eyes But weren't they already there? Weren't they all known? All it began with the simple touch Of cold steel Upon bone The slightest kiss The least sigh And I found myself In the embrace Of a lie My eyes watered My soul shrieked out My voice deadend And I found myself Reaching out For just the simple touch Of your skin For just the simple word From your within And nothing fell on my ears Nothing touched my fingers For nothing still remained The embrace gone And struggling to stand Struggling, struggling ,struggling And then I found some feeling Unto my scarred soul For some reckoning In the heart of stone And so I took a step And another once again For I never wanted the back Which was turnwd And I still tread Trying to thaw the stone Still tread Trying to feel once more And then I glimpse you again Laughing. Laughing! Oh! All hell must break loose Devils must rise And heavens open To cast this wretch In to worst fate ever Still he embraces another And never a look to me Still he caresses another And no word to me. Stone burns bright Soul once cries But now they are a habit And habits die hard Quenching anger with will And taking another step forward Oh! How the air smells How the earth crunches How the melody dances In my heart. For its not your anymore Mine. MIne. And only MINE!
