Warmth Of My Tub

Warmth Of My Tub

I see vengeance in your eyes 
I can feel the burning of your anger
you have so much on your mind 
but all I can say 
is please stay away 
I don't know how this gives you power
to stand so brave over all my pains,

I don't know how to succeed 
when all you do is give me darken dreams
your voice whirling around in my mind
day and night
most of the time 
the old autumn wind
speaks to me time and again ,

I get into my bathtub just to feel 
the warmth of the water
Oh , how my body felt so cold
but now I'm stating to get warm 
Life is on my side 
death is always near 
holding so much fear ,

this old griffin legged tubs
holds so much love in my tub
I close my eyes 
but just then I start to cry 
praying you would get out of my mind
I almost fallen a sleep 
but my spirit started to sing ,

I open my eyes 
looked at my bathroom door 
I thought I heard a knock 
so I got up out of the warmth of my tub 
just to find emptiness
hollowness of cold sadness 
moving over me 
something dark ,

I see my bed 
I lye down in it 
an slumped my head down 
upon my cold pillow 
and gone off to sleep 
oh, hear comes another painful darken dream.
