There was a sun Not enough time to wonder where the clouds went My friends said I still don't hang I picked time with you over time with them Only because this was a different kind of light I got a chance at a different kind of sight A world where hope wasn't just a word others told you to hold I ended up swallowed in what was and not what it had become The clouds returned And then again, came the rain.
Like an empty cavern This hollow secret place was once barred and closed off
Till you stepped in like a miner with your lamp of words and touch
You turned this place into your home little did I know, day by day You'd dig in close And chip away at me more and more
Till the day you cast me like a die in a game I couldn't yet know I was to be a pit stop on your road to find a place to go I was not the knight that had come to rescue you, if only it were so I went from being a lonely soul To now understanding what more the world could hold
I know it wasn't the end goal But my naivety Left me without a way to know that I would be a paper castle in a storm....
....No one really makes me happy anymore More like half smiles to a face broken in many places by unfallen tear streaks and frowns Emitting noise just to see if it would be heard Saying I love you, just to see if I believe the words coming from my own mouth. I said I'd stick around but those machines inside are running down down down and soon the energy keeping me up is going to run out So I should start running now....?
And for a moment, you were shining, and you never saw it. But I did. Its been long, since Ive seen that shine. I think you lost it, when you lost yourself. When you got stuck in a rut,and I had to move. You knew it right? That I couldnt be the one for you and I had to move. But for a moment in time,you shined. Did you glimpse mine, when I turned from you? I missed mine too, right? Yeah I think I did. My light.
Broken, battered and bruised but still walking down this path , of course you'd choose.... Yes, you came for some advice I faced you away from that abuse Yet you'd rather be a tool Instead of treasured, only used Reached to save you once again But you slapped the hand I lent
Pity is a fools reprieve.... Naivety is a strong belief Your god was never heaven sent A false idol by which you've bled Your god was never heaven sent You've wasted life on a broken wish
Every time you told me no Every time you stayed, I failed It was in the way I loved you In these wasted steps I took, I felt That I would always burn in **** The promises that you would leave Were always my fool's.... reprieve... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For anyone who's ever known a friend or has been in an abusive relationship and either never listened to the chances to get out, or ignored them until you listened.
My love is.....skeptical. My love is warm. My love is the sun behind the clouds. My love is a drizzle before the storm. My love is the breeze in the air. My love is that wave of nostalgia. My love is the boom of thunder. My love is what makes your heart beat faster. My love is an explosion on a race track. My love is a 10 car pile up with hours of delay. M y love is war. My love is peace. My love is icy winter. My love can melt. My love is yours.
When the wind blows When the wind blows, I smell you
Overcast, my emotional weather I thought it would always last I thought it would never pass Couldn't break free,I was stuck in the past And all the advice I was given I crumbled it up like wasted flyer paper Fell out somewhere between my hand, pocket And garbage cans Couldn't move these clouds if I tried Shadows and rain falling only on and around me Kept my head down to keep the water out my ears...
Just kidding, they were tears
Cuz who am I kidding If I wasn't overthinking my next step I was contemplating sui...sin...
Till a light..... And then
I could see the sun I could see the sun again...
I looked up and saw you.
A lyrical interpretation of swinging from a dark mood to a lighter one.
