You and I are as thick as thieves So I know your nightmares
You've tossed and turned Your eyes burned You rolled and churned Your sweet dreams were thrown away And nightmares took their place The sweet tunes of a lullaby seem to continually fade away Like you no longer have a special place In the Musicians heart. I know what you face
From burning hot like fire, everything turned as cold as ice From wings taking you higher To being unable to devise Solutions to rekindle the fire "This dream has never been yours" They say "Had you been a little wiser You could have owned it," you hear everyday The words have turned into the monsters you fear Mermaids, centaurs, mystical creatures With long nails, sharp teeth, unrecognizable features **** joys, depressants, unforgivable teachers They've scarred you, marred you into an inexplicable stature But I watch you nurture The pain 'til it's a part of your nature
Surprisingly I'm the one fighting everyday Hoping you won't fail Me. You're the one in prison denying yourself bail I'm trying to make you run the sail But you're walking the plank Yet I still see a captain in your soul Every time you come to me in pieces I'm puzzled How anyone can fail to accept you never ceases To leave my mind boggled Because I understand the colourful 'patchwork' that is your heart And instead of confusing, raggedy mismatched pieces, I see a rainbow.
Life gives you those people who fail to see their worth and sometimes it's worth it to remind them that you know what they go through.
