My Cinderella

You reach up for a star one night to hold it in your hand so tight
But the chance to make a wish just fades away.
The star, it seems, was never there it vanished in the midnight air
Just try again, if you dare, and reach for another.

Dance Cinderella your night is young, cherish life it’s your only one
'Cause the midnight hour can take it all away.
Sing to life and dance to love, touch the sky with your hands held up
And live your life, just drink it up and dance Cinderella.

Your head held high and a heavy heart those fairy tales that cloud your thoughts
Make your hopes and dreams seem a million miles away.
You never know what’s in the plan when your search seems it will never end
A Prince may come and take your hand so dance, love forever.

Dance Cinderella your night is young, cherish life it’s your only one
'Cause the midnight hour can take it all away.
Sing to life and dance to love, touch the sky with your hands held up
And live your life, just drink it up and dance, Cinderella, just dance.

sinking together any hardship.
Since you are mine
I shall not do anything else to undermine
our relationship for personal
or egotistical
reasons.
Now and forever
I am your lawful and loving wife…

There is Beauty

There’s the beauty of the sunset
At the closing of the day
And the beauty of the sunrise
When sunbeams come out to play

There’s the beauty of the sunshine
When it makes love to the fields
Warming seeds asleep and waiting
For the harvest they will yield

There’s the beauty of the moonlight
As it rests on bed of sea
And the dance of stars that twinkle
Setting every dreamer free

There’s the beauty of the mountain
In its snowcapped majesty
And the joy of love bird chorus
Nature’s grandest symphony

There’s the beauty of the meadows
And the flowers dressed so fair
Warmth of earth and sun kissed rivers
And the breeze of alpine air

There’s this beauty all around me
And yet you are all I see
In the sky and field and fountain
In the brook and cedar tree

Everywhere I see the beauty
Of your body and your soul
Everywhere I taste your bounty
In the way you make me whole

Most of all I see the beauty
That is touching you with grace
And that wondrous manly beauty
That I see upon your face

Where Will My Heart Take You Today

Where will my heart take you today If you open the door ? It would take you to places , and beautiful faces , you've never seen before. Because there is magic if you believe ,there is a paradise, You do not have to travel the world ,to see such beauty that brightens the eyes. It is right there , in front of you , Listen to my soul .. It is a soul that speaks the truth ,Get hold of it, Never let go ... Cherish the flashes of this short life, Count hundred ways to smile When shapeless clouds cover the sun , Fly higher than the sky. Where will my heart take you today if you open the door ? 'Bove gentle ripples where boats move slow, under a moonlit glow. Amidst the scents of flowered trees which waft in the slight breeze , That rise ' bove high close to the stars ,then flow so softly into new dreams . Where will my heart take you today if you open the door ? It pulls you deep into my arms to the melt water of polar snow , to louvered windows'filtering thoughts ,to a surprise that will go on. Where will this heart take me today , If I open my door It takes me to streets , where my passion bleeds Where this joy I feel ,moves in rhytmic beats to the ones tthat I greet , to the ones I adore .

Light Suspended

         
 
         I watch you bend the light, so that I'm able to see
             The essence you illuminate that's inside of me
                 I never imagined you'd be with me still
                      A moment
                         A sacrifice
               
                             I'll love you until

                                Until the oceans evaporate
                                  The stars fall from the sky
                                    Until the laws of gravity break
                                      I'll always be your guy
                                       You make it easy to love you
                                         No reason to question why
                                          Jesus, you're God's perfect gift
                                           My parched soul's no longer dry


                                              Thanks for bending the light 
                                               so that I'm able to see
                                                Nothing is impossible
                                                Love does set me free
                                                I never imagined
                                                my heart peaceful and still
                                               A moment
                                              A sacrifice

                                           I'll love you until
            
                                    Until twenty before never
                                several minutes beyond eternity
                            You are more than just perfection
                        You're the one true Saviour for me
                      All that I have searched for
                    I am now able to see
                   True Love overflowing
                  protects me from the enemy
                  Light suspended on a cross
                  Your blood shed for me
                  
                   As you bend the light
                    I feel it wrap around my heart
                     It was always meant for me
                      I knew it from the start
                        Take this heart Jesus
                          I know you understand
                              I am yours now and forever 
                                  Let me feel your light  e x p a n d

Beautiful Mirrors

Mirror mirrors show me mine, 
reflect to me the pure divine~

If my view of you is clouded and dim, 
I have thrown myself on the altar of sin~

If I perceive in your heart only darkness and death, 
I have stolen the fragrance of Spirit’s sweet breath~

If beauty be seen and echoed through you, 
my healing is sure and my vision so true~

If you unfold yourself and are open to me, 
I will not mirror your lies or the guilt that you see~

If your mind filters not the depth of my story, 
you will fall in my eyes and at once know your glory~

You will see the true purpose for the seeds you have sown~
You will witness the Divine in my eyes as your own~

How could I not know you, for I now see you clearly~?
How could I not hold you and love you so dearly~?

The illusion of borders between you and I 
is the reason, the cause, and the root of the lie~

Arrives the spring

Arrives the spring
Anacreontic verse 3






Allure of raindrops 
as drizzle knocks,
April arrives ...
Ecstatic Spring 
ushers joy,
Buds bloom
petals unfold,
Vibrant colours
eyes behold,
Mustard in yellow
wheat gives gold, 

Fragrant breeze 
to lovers' delight,
Heavenly azure
and soaring flight,
Reigning blue
echoes into sea,

Festivals lure
delicacies to relish,
Step into May
with blushing
Red roses,
Luscious Mangoes
enticing delish,
Basking days
evenings coldish,
Verve satiates 
soul's every wish!

- A Lyrical Ballad -


Sing to me ... raindrops of autumn
Not a sad song that makes me cry

Watching the leaves dancing in the wind
A new painting, my senses changes
Autumn is a fantastic season
Colors of fire: red, yellow and orange in flames

Sing to me ... raindrops of autumn
Not a sad song that makes me cry

The drops on the window make a rhythmic drum sound
Enjoy your own harmony and inner happiness
Autumn's breath is spontaneous as a lyrical ballad
Of present joy, from this colorful earth

Sing to me ... raindrops of autumn
Not a sad song that makes me cry

Create the light on your own heaven ... ripples in water
Perhaps life is about learning to dance in the rain of autumn
Sing to me ... raindrops of autumn
I'm going out
Join me

Sunburst - made into a song

Sun brush slow as dawn's light breaks
kiss gently on this heart that wakes
warm up days   til night stand guard
when breeze blows brisk and mighty hard

Tap lightly on her peeked cheek this morn
where thoughts of love and life are born
bring forth to her    peace and hope
and faith in man from words God spoke

Impart comfort and ease in rays you share
lighten our load on that cross we bare
Rise up high and in blue skies do rest
soothe our souls with loyal hearts abreast

Sun brush slow as dawn's light breaks
Paint with grace 'pon swan still lakes

A Loving Kiss


In a silent beckoning From the hearts loving call Where a simple day of beauty falls A white rose opens So pure so free And wings of love In you In me Take flight beyond To drift so free Each delicate petal Of silken love In wind blown dream Rise above Where painted gardens In rainbow mist Flouish beneath A loving kiss

Meadows In The Sky

Subtle like the midnight air She walks in meadows upon the sky Never touching ground with a care Her spirit lifts my heart high Daydreaming often about you You fill my mind with thoughts as well Perhaps one day this dream comes true An angel you are, time shall tell

While You Sleep

While you sleep I tell you all of the things I keep inside throughout day.
Now that you can hear but not listen I find them much easier to say.
My hopes, my dreams, my fears, and everything in between
Your subconscious hears so keen, or so it seems.
My tongue is soft; I speak so sweetly 
Knowing your reaction will never greet me.

Tonight will be different in what I want you to know.
It has everything to do with what I can’t help but show.
I hold no claim to any religion but you’ve given me a place for my faith.
Somewhere it will never stale or lose its lavish taste.
You’ve shown me something I can see, touch, and feel, 
And so before it I choose to kneel.

I know I don’t say it but I miss you every day.
Sitting, thinking of the perfect words to be my choice,
Yet when you call I can’t find any of the right words to say.
I’m just happy to finally hear your voice.
Even just a moment is enough to sooth my heavy heart;
Fearing the ends of conversations knowing we’ll have to part.

I’ll never be too far from you, always within arm’s reach,
And in your days of darkness I’ll be the light that you will seek.
I’ll never let you leave too far from me, I’ll stay close behind you in this world;
Secretly protecting what is mine, you will always be my girl.
I only want the best for you so the best of me I will employ.
Faithfully yours, I will always be your boy.

I close my eyes and kiss your soft sweet lips
And see the very best of you in loving bliss.
I see past the physical which makes you attractive
And focus on the things I can’t see in which I’m attracted.
Your thoughts I’d love to hear them all.
Of the things you speak disinterest never makes its call.

My day will come, I know someday I’ll be the only one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give, to love unconditionally.
Yes our day will come, I know someday we’ll be as one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give… to love unconditionally.

Moments In Time

The sweetest sounds of burning trees
A gentle stroking in the breeze
The calm has lasted past the storm
Cloudy visions, Satan’s roar
Too many sights have passed my way
A time found only in the haze
The softest screams are running bare
My aching bones creak as I stare

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

The battle’s started at the end
No one is coming to repent
The sinners grab their wine from prey
No judgment calling here to stay
The sport is reckless to be told
The one is laughing at his souls
It falters nowhere to be sure
The power grows forevermore
Like a spirit in the wind
I have no say in where you’ve been 
But cross the line to come to me
And pay the price for ecstasy

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark.

Silence Says A Thousand Words

Silence says a thousand  words
about joys that filled our past
and fair youth upon my lips
that once owned your stolen kiss
Can you hear  me ?

Oh those lips that touched my own
like a first petal in bloom 
Floral accents 've been long gone
since that pale October moon

Silence says a thousand words 
about joys that filled our past
and fair youth upon my lips
that once owned your stolen kiss
Can you hear me ?

There's a place you can return to
If your seamless thoughts turn blue
You will never wander lonely
My perfume will linger through

Once again we'll find sweet laughter
It's lost echo in the sand
Once again I'll read your love note
that lies  crumpled in my hand.

Silence says a thousand words
about joys that filled our past
and fair youth upon my lips
that once owned your stolen kiss
Can you hear me ?

Here and Now Kisses Glow

I have lost the words
I have lost the heart to dream
Every word that comes to mind
Brings me back to times 
When You kissed me that very first time
yesterday is my fantasy
You kissed me then so long ago
Now I need you here, wishing so
That you were beside me now

I need you here
I need you now
Here and now the kisses glow

You gave me smiles 
You gave me hope
That love could be a dream come true
You took nothing, only gave
Yet you stole my heart, and walked away
I can’t live any more, not without you
Your smiles made me dance and sing
And now I cant seem to do a thing
If I confesses the tears that flow
In the middle of these lonely nights
I wonder why
As so much time as passed
I still think of you

I need you here
I need you now
Here and now the kisses glow


Even now
Laying down upon my pillow
The world is all  so different
My longing won’t go away
Even now
I wonder where you are
I wish 
I wish for second chances
I wonder if you ever think
Of that kiss I once planted on your lips

I need you here
I need you now
Here and now the kisses glow

Now is never and long ago
Now has past and lost its glow
If only time could be held so still
Then here and now the kisses would glow

SOS

SOS


Sixty seems so old
Oland was a time long ago
Sweden still sleeps in my dreams

So young so sweet
Old dreams run in retreat
Songs like lovers never last

Vanished love, island breezes
Vanquished lovers, sins drown, nothing pleases

Gone is the desire
Gardens die inside of Swedish winds
Gentle thoughts tossed into trysts seas

Tales of lore from distance shore
Another chance, the dice never win
Camisoles and lingerie
Oh my love, you captivated me
Maidens I would always toss to the sea

Frost could not kill the call of drummers doom

Another song, another story of a lovers end
Beware the maiden, ships sailors will tell 
Breasts heave in sadness of autumn leaves
Allay my fears with illusions trumpets

Death dances, life runs to another day
Quebec was the shores of Swedish fantasies

Winter winds brought things to an end
Taking love could not prosper, when love won’t bend
Inside the pain, doomed us the broken hearted
Another day, another dream


Knowing love was so departed
	Memories wrapped and folded in the drawer
Knowing death was welcome and so regarded
	Youth no longer dances on this shore


Solitude was the only game in town
Obituary would be my fame thus drowned
Smiles forgotten, my love for her never waned



Notes: Due to some confusion, I changed the last verse and fixed a few things!
The suicide was mine, but only poetically! :)

I've Scribbled This Song For You



I've Scribbled This Song For You...


I'm wasting my days,
my empty nights too,

I should have held on,
but I simply lost you,

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

yes, I should have kept,
you close to my skin,

soaking your warmth,
but you were laughing,

at my foolish grin...


now I'm all broken,
and torn apart,

but what the hell,
I was always late,
for the tolling of the bell,

and now...

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

so kiss me now like you once did,
I'm tired of being so carefully hid,


la laa laa la laa laa laa...


(repeat to fade)

Polly

A nobody 
Scared by the sound of his own voice
Following the girl home from school
In his mind this is normal
Stalking girls
He grabs her jacket
Pulling her backwards unto the ground
Placing a cloth around her nose and mouth
Gagging her until she sleeps for a while
He drags her through the woods
Branches hitting her every which way he turns
Dragging her along until he reaches the cabin
Picking her up over his shoulders opening the door to the cellar
Locking the door behind him he walks down the stairs slowly
He places her on a chair and ties her wrist to the handles
Tying her feet to the legs of the chair
Tightening the rope around her neck to the back of the chair
He undresses her waiting for her to wake up
Several hours pass 
She wakes up
Sweating and screaming
Crying and yelling at him
He places duct tape around her mouth
Placing a knife against her stomach
She groans and yelps
He takes the knife away and looks at her
Grabbing her face and telling her shes beautiful
He turns around and stands with his back towards her
As he starts to say
But its the beautiful people that need fixing
He takes the tape off her face and holds her chin tightly
He carves a smile on her face
Cutting her mouth from ear to ear
Telling her
Smile dear it makes you adorable
He grins and sits the knife down
Laughing as she bleeds
She tries to move her mouth
It just drops open
He looks at her smiling
Now that makes you truly beautiful
He leaves her there for a while
Later returning
Placing a needle with a string attached to it
Sticking it into the skin around her mouth that is hanging open
He stitches her back together
Cant make up his mind
He slaps her and leaves her there for another few days
She sits with her eyes peeled wide open
A tear falling as she tries wiggling her hand free from the rope
As she frees her hand she runs her fingers over her stitches
Only to find out her whole mouth has been stitched together
She cant speak
She can only mumble
She frees the rest of  her limbs
Trying to stand up and walk but she's to weak and falls
He runs down the stairs
Yelling at her to get up
She doesn't move
He kicks her in the stomach
She doesn't budge
He picks her up and uses her as a puppet 
For his own needs
He then buries her beside his other victims
Only to find out shes still alive
Her hand slips through the dirty old mud

Beauty

She remains a partial gift
some have none, yet some have much
for her scales, sideways they tilt
yet we crave her soothing touch.

With jars of scents, ointments and creams
ourselves we paint seeking her face
fanciful, our grotesque masks seems
yet she stays mocking our ways.

But true beauty in these things lie;
the morning dew on thirsty leaves
the new-born sun that's up so high
even in Nature's smiles on lonesome cliffs!

Back To Rio

Take me back, to good old Rio
Let me lie there in the Sun
Then take a ride to Capo Ferro
Dancing Samba, having fun
And the girls will all be prancing
In the waves along the shore
Eating crab and fish together
That were caught the day before
As my passion starts increasing 
Like the heat upon the grill
With all the stress now I'm releasing
I don't miss the northern chill
Take me back to good old Rio
Let me stay there to the end
No yesterdays or tomorrows
The place where night and day, just blends
Take me back.....

APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS

Anacreontic Verse Winter has now passed, tears drip from the sky grey clouds hide the blue it’s raining! I cry. April showers bring us welcomed rain, our garden’s thirst is quenched again. Vibrant crocuses of yellow and blue peer through the soil. Daffodils dance in the warm spring breeze, their golden pollen may make you sneeze! Terrific tulips delight us bursting with jewelled colours of purple, pink and red. Cherry blossom falls on a zephyr breeze, resembling pretty pink wedding confetti falling from the trees.

Someone Like You

So little it takes
Smiles so huge they make
All because
Of someone like you

Small gifts from the heart
Lifting up those 
Whose days had sad starts
Smiling back at someone like you

So little it takes
Holding open the door
Sunshine it does make
From someone like you

If the world only had
More someone’s like you
We'd have so much laughter
And the world would never be blue

All cause
Of someone like you

The Crosses in Your Eyes

1. Remember that first day we met?
I hadn’t hardly wakened yet
When I walked in the church’s wooden door.
Then I saw you beside a pew;
I hardly knew what I should do
So I stood firmly rooted to the floor,
(Chorus)
Because I saw the crosses in your eyes,
Reflecting in their depths that seemed to look through me.
And ever since that moment of surprise
You’ve meant everything to me.

2. A year flew by on fleeting wings,
In that same church exchanged our rings;
Tho’ I can’t recall a single word I said,
Or what I wore, or what I did.
All I recall is two eyelids,
And two eyes that I was looking at instead,
(Chorus)
Because I saw the crosses in your eyes,
Reflecting in that bluish-green I love so much;
And while I stared, and thought, and fantasized,
I realized our lips had touched.

3. When two more years had flown on by,
Remember when you knelt to cry
In the graveyard just down the grassy hill?
I led a brief and panicked search
Until I found you by the church;
There I stopped, and the whole world became still,
(Chorus)
Because I saw the crosses in your eyes;
The smallest one a chiseled cross so cold and grey.
I’d carved it for our daughter in the skies,
Who we’d only had a day.

4. The time has really ticked away,
That all seems just like yesterday;
Now I lie on a bed and will not rise.
But, Dearest, I’ll be doing fine
So long as I a window find
That will look to the churchyard from the skies,
(Chorus)
Because I’ll see the crosses in your eyes,
Reflected in the tears you’ll shed beside my grave.
And Sweetheart, just like I’ve done all our lives,
I will whisper, “Please be brave.”

5. And when you meet me there someday,
If there’s a cross where angels pray,
I will reach for your hand and take you there;
And as we kneel and fold our hands
I hope our Father understands
Why our eyes are wide open for the prayer—
(Chorus)
Because I’ll see the crosses in your eyes,
Reflecting from the pretty girl I love so much.
And all I hope is that I will realize
When our silent lips have touched…

Because I’ll see the crosses in your eyes,
Reflected from the pretty girl I love so much.

LOVE ME LOVE MY INK

LOVE ME LOVE MY INK

Did I make you happy?
Did I use my dexterity?
Did you fall in love?
Did you love the ink?
My hand is ready 
Tell me that  feeling
That Indescribable feeling 
Only the ink understands
Only the poet has the hands
Love me Love my ink

Sparkles and Glitter

You never ever
Shoulda walked in this bar
It's a million miles away 
From who you think you are
Music intoxicates
More than the Rum and Coke
That pretty girl smiling
Causes a lump in your throat

Sparkles and glitter
Red shoes with high heels
Her dress is too short
You love what it reveals
Yet something ain't right
She's not your baby
She's sweet bitter temptation
Disguised as a lady

She walks on over 
Sits down right next to you
Asks you for a drink
One leads to quite a few
Nothing else seems to matter
As she gazes in your eyes
You imagine paradise
As you reach between her thighs

Sparkles and glitter 
Red shoes with high heels
Her dress is too short
You love how she feels
Yet something ain't right
She's not your baby
She's sweet bitter temptation 
Disguised as a lady

Laughter and whispers
Promises lead to dark places
Looking for something 
In tight hot hidden spaces
Yet liars are liars
You can read it on their faces
You give up on forever
Just because your pulse races

Sparkles and glitter
Lay in a pile on the floor
When the sun rises
You don't want her any more
Guilt you can't escape 
When you look in the mirror
You wish you could convince yourself
that the temptress led you here!

Velvet Wings

Ignorant to passing time
Reality strikes its deafening chime
Unspoken words pass between
I and you, my darling queen

Lay your weary head to rest
With your arms across your chest
Now it's time to close your eyes
Whisper your final goodbyes

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

Embracing tears of bitter pain
Falling lightly with the rain
Out of reach, I hear your song
Alone again, I sing along

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

From the night. . .
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I never saw you so alive
So alive
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I'll never ever say goodbye
Never say goodbye

Life has ended, you have won
Death befriended, pain is gone
Fly away into the light
Crystal clear and shining bright
Close your eyes for final rest
Meeting among the blessed

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

From the night. . .
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I never saw you so alive
So alive
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I'll never ever say goodbye
Never say goodbye

I let you go so you'll be free
Cross the path of darkened sea
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I can never say goodbye
Never say goodbye

I Hate to Admit It

~ Inspired by the likes of Hoplessly Devoted to You ~

The reflection of your beauty are shadows on the wall,
The abstract of your spirit is still standing in the hall,
I know I am a victim of this ghostly fantasy,
I hate to admit it, but your love is haunting me.

I hate to admit it, but you appear wherever I go,
I can't fight the feeling as the magic begins to grow,
The thrill of believing brings a scary urgency,
I hate to admit it, but your love is haunting me.

As I lie here not sleeping somewhere deep in the night,
Your whisper of desire brings a passion of fright,
I can't go on believing as the spirits above agree,
I hate to admit it, but your love is haunting me.

I hate to admit it, but life is running late,
What love has to offer will die throughout the wait,
I must find a way to break this broken heart free,
I hate to admit it, but your love is haunting me.

FALSE PROPHETS

FALSE PROPHETS

They have the word of God as their encyclopedia
They refer and come out to deceive the myopia
They are quick to inform like Wikipedia
Their actions premeditated like the media

About people they always see vision
But their flaws they fail to acknowledge
They come into the field with a weird mission
Therefore always speaking out of knowledge

They don't have an emblem
But by their deeds we know them
They are infected with a germ
Searching to destroy the worm

On scene they help us genuflect
We scream crazily to pay respect
Behind scene they have their own dialect
Communicating with structures they erect

They consult at midnight while mining
They always see our problems from afar
Nothing not even our prayers except their ways can solve that canker
Men in black, all they do is cunning..

FALSE PROPHETS THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE

In a Blink of an Eye

Did you just leave me in a blink of an eye?
My ears aren’t open to your heartless lies…
And your twisted lullabies…and your wretched goodbyes
Did you think you’re gonna get away with hating on me?
Oh how the time flies…I hear your cries as your voice dries
My fears are flying out the window…
I’m facing yesterday’s tomorrow’s sorrow

Don’t give me that blank expression
I’ve made my final decision
I’m going to wait for a long, long time
Till I find the one I love – when that time comes,
That time will be so sublime

Nice to see you again…
Nice to be with you once more
Let the marvelous day begin
Someday, you and I will soar!
Where have you been? 
How have you been?
Where did you go?
Did you go with the flow?

I need to show you something very dear to me
I’ve made this art piece and it took me hours to make
We’re spinning ‘round and ‘round and ‘round 
Like a merry-go-round without the slightest sound

Don’t give me that blank expression
I’ve made my final decision
I’m going to wait for a long, long time
Till I find the one I love – when that time comes,
That time will be so sublime

Nice to see you again…
Nice to be with you once more
Let the marvelous day begin
Someday, you and I will soar!
Where have you been? 
How have you been?
Where did you go?
Did you go with the flow?

There are some things on my mind that I have to tell you
Racing thoughts have been zipping through my mind 
The clock keeps on chiming and my time is almost up out of the blue
I am receiving peace of mind, but that peace is hard to find

Don’t give me that blank expression
I’ve made my final decision
I’m going to wait for a long, long time
Till I find the one I love – when that time comes,
That time will be so sublime

Nice to see you again…
Nice to be with you once more
Let the marvelous day begin
Someday, you and I will soar!
Where have you been? 
How have you been?
Where did you go?
Did you go with the flow?

Did you just leave me in a blink of an eye?
My ears aren’t open to your heartless lies…
And your twisted lullabies…and your wretched goodbyes
Did you think you’re gonna get away with hating on me?
I hope you good luck as you leave me behind
You shut the front door…
I was on my knees, crying and more…
I’m screaming my lunges out…
I’m as dry as a drought
But as wet as the ocean no doubt…
Rivers of tears stream down my eyes
You left me with nothing, but your emptiness and lies

Tell Me Why

      TELL ME WHY
If what I've done is love too much
too deep, and far too strong,
and languished in loves bitter touch
that stays with me too long
what hope have I to end in me
this love, to let it die?
When I know it will always be
but can not tell you why.
To hide it or to let it show
decisions of the heart,
when you've already seen and know
and did right from the start.
If all I've had is too much pain
whenever you are near
and let it show time and again
love that won't disappear
what hope have I of ending it?
Does real love ever die?
And so I let it show a bit
but cannot tell you why.
If all I've done is think on you
each minute of each day
and write your name a time or two
what hope is that some way
this love will ever cease to be
just stop? Just simply die?
This love that life has given me
but did not tell me why.
