Longings

Why do I have to run
From my place by your side
Why do I have to dream
To keep you within my sight

Where do I have to be
To make it worth your while
Where would you be
If only I missed your ride

How would you feel
To be amongst the stars
How would you know
If I left you any scars

Would you stand up
Still hold me by my side
Or would you run ahead
Knowing I can’t follow your tide

Why do I have to smile
Just so you can feel better
Why do I have to leave
Just so you will live forever

And I wish I could learn
To live on without dreaming
To leave the world to burn
Consumed by my own longing.

Choices

A word which draws you in and draws something else out
Living each day like you’re fighting a battle with no end full of doubt
It’s only a matter of time with each passing second they shout
Tonight is the night which you can’t live without

Was giving it all not enough for your soul
Is this the best they can play in a single role
Too much to handle you finally go out for stroll
Only to find it’s just another deeper darker hole

Perplexed with the sound of a space within the unknown
Desperately trying to breathe in a wind that hasn’t blown
Deep down all hope vanishes into a world of its own
A ray of sunshine is but written only on a stone

Would you give up now and look ahead to a world of sand
Dark cold miserable as if you were the only one banned
Would that still make you hope for another touch of hand
To restart in a world of illusion that comes in it’s own new brand

If only it were a dream disguised as a nightmare
If only I could hear you past your final dry tear
If only you would come back as the answer to my prayer
If only you weren’t just so very rare

Something hit my toe and I stood up alright
Looked down on the light that shone so bright
Scared I left it alone fearing another big fight
Maybe it was life telling me that the time is just right.

Finally I get a raven carrying your news
Couldn’t believe you were so easy to lose
As I opened my eyes I only saw the blues
Maybe this is life of what we merely choose.

A fair trade

There, as I stood watching over,
the innocent smile of yours as you leaned forward,
I tried my best, but couldn’t move any closer,
as I saw the smile fade away as if it were altered.


I looked down, at my feet which refused to move,
ask why can’t it go any closer towards you,
I looked up and tried everything to improve,
but you had already given up, to something new.


I looked back, to find a world long past gone,
You were still smiling, as if it were tiny dots.
Couldn’t we go back and stare again at the dawn,
when I could still move and hit all the right spots.


Wouldn’t that be something, to go back in time,
Would you do anything differently, knowing that where we’ll be.
Would you have even started, instead of leaving halftime,
or would you have tried desperately to make me agree.


I hope we would go back though,
cause that way, I would know,
if there was ever anything to flow,
looking below and refusing to grow.


Could I stay here for some more time,
As if you were still here, holding tight on to the light.
Could you stay here through the nighttime,
And wait till it all goes so very quite.


No, but I know you won’t stay,
for you have to be somewhere,
with someone else till it’s grey,
After all, to answer it all, it’s only but, fair.

So long

Can you hear me weep
From this hole so deep
I’ve dug my path
To the world underneath

Can you hold this light
Till I pass out tight
I want to be with you
Till it turns blue

So long, so long
You will cry when I’m gone
But I know you are strong
Let’s drive till it’s dawn

Can you hear me smile
I know it’s been a while
I would sit for hours
to listen your plan of ours

Can you wait for me
Or count to just three
I’d promise I’ll return
If only I could earn

So long, so long
In a world full of wrong
You are my moonlight
This will be our last fight

So long, so long
This battle is now done
Will you keep me
in the midst of your palm

So long, so long
I am now at peace
So don’t worry my love
Stay with your beloved dove
