sing-songs

this is the song that never ends...yes it goes on and on my friends...some people started singing it, not knowing what it was, but they'll just keep on singing it forever just because this is the song that never ends...

Don't let them see

Glossy and cold
Glittery gold
Story unfolds
No longer untold

Twinkle in the eyes
Looking surprised
One can only surmise
No one heard her cries

Sparkling gown
As she came down
Radiant glow
But it was all a show

She put her best face on,
Face on
Cus we must be strong,
Be strong
The show must go on,
Go on,
Don't give up, or let down, or let them see

You gotta fake it,
Fake it,
'Til you learn to make it,
Make it,
No one's gonna take it,
Take it,
Just hold on, hold back, don't let them see.

Magical lights,
Shining so bright
Erasing the night
What a blinding sight

Thresholds crossed,
Past is lost,
New tides comes in,
We'll begin again

She put her best face on,
Face on
Cus we must be strong,
Be strong
The show must go on,
Go on,
Don't give up, or let down, or let them see

You gotta fake it,
Fake it,
'Til you learn to make it,
Make it,
No one's gonna take it,
Take it,
Just hold on, hold back, don't let them see.

Don't let them see
Don't let them see
It's just you and me
Don't let them see

Ah, pretty girl
Ah, pretty girl

Don't let them see
Don't let them see
It's just you and me
Don't let them see

A New Song

A thousand shards of glass,
An attack, so vicious and so cruel
Left me feeling like a fool

A million words to say
Caught in my throat
Would you have listened any way?

To what I had to say
About the way you left me?
Or how I felt about your broken promises?

Hey, hey,
It's a new day
I no longer feel that way
Hey, hey
Time heals all,
So I sing a new song today.


Washed away, with old memories
Were the stories of us
I don't need them anymore
Just like I don't need the fuss

Found the depths to my darkness
That led me to the light
Leaving behind the sadness
For the dawn after that night


Hey, hey,
It's a new day
I no longer feel that way
Hey, hey
Look at me now
I sing a new song today.

Just like they said,
One day I'd move on
So open and free
I know I'll carry on

The burden has lifted
The pain has subsided
My heart is whole again.

Wrongs may never be righted
But justice isn't blinded
So I sing a new song!

Doors

She stared up at the bright red lettering on the EXIT sign.

EXIT

She crossed the threshold.

Doors - where do the unknowns lead? What lies on the other side?

How does one know when one is ready to close one, open another?

I thought the words would pour out of me, but I only have one question; am I ready?

Nothing to Fear

Those who can drown in your love
Have nothing to fear of the waves of this world.

Fairy tales

When you wish upon a star,
Do you wonder where to start?
Can you dare to dream big,
Or do those dreams just seem to far?

Close your eyes, what do you see?
Is it just darkness, only empty?
Can you find a shred of hope,
Or see the light, tell me do you see this light?

When I climbed up the stairs,
And looked below,
Coke lines in the bathroom,
Passed out on the dance floor

I grabbed for her hand
As she walked right by me
I looked her dead in the eye,
I looked her dead in the eye.





Garden of Love Addiction

Cycle of seasons is complete,
Everyone is rushing home.
Some claimed success, I felt defeat
I never felt so alone.

I washed away the memories,
Left them with the tide on the beach
I circled around, looking to ground
Hoping to land back on my feet

Red roses, I love you
Tulips, I miss you,
Lilies, I want you

Every flower, a promise
Broken, not in bloom,
Need to find something new

Weekend brunches, our traditions
Driving fast and singing loud,
Smiling, laughing, yelling, screaming,
It all came just crashing down.

I was surprised, I didn't see
What unfolded in front of me
I kissed you hard, I held your hand
Letting go wasn't easy


Red roses, I love you
Tulips, I miss you,
Lilies, I want you

Every flower, a promise
Broken, not in bloom,
Need to find something new

A Private Affair

I don't know
I don't care
I just want to get out of here

This space
This time
Is no longer serving me

I can't
Take a breath
It's been harder and harder to breathe

I need to be
Some place I can call my own
With room to grow
And room to be alone

Curled up into a little ball
I'll fit those tiny spaces
Places where the shadows hide


I don't know
I don't care
I just want to get out of here

This age
This day
Needs to come to an end now

It's been far
Far too long
The minutes must pass somehow

Close my eyes
Hold my breath
Block out the sounds of this death

I fear no one here
This is a private affair
I can't just share

I don't know
I don't care
I just want to get out of here

It's a private affair
A private, private, private affair

Closure

You can't return to me
What I gave on my own

You can't change for me
I'm not enough alone

This is where we sit down
Figure out this time around
I'll be the one to listen
To reasons why you were missing

All I see is a ghost of a man
I once used to love and know
All I know in this very moment
Is that I am finally free to go
And live the life I was meant to live
And be with someone who deserves me
And grow and prosper, find happiness
In this moment, I set me free

You sat across from me,
Empty words, broken soul

I realized, you see
What the future would hold

This is time for change
You have become estranged
I'm choosing to walk away
Living to see better days
