Treasure Island

Daniel Wittfoth

The One


Verse 1

There is no laughter
only tears falling down
If I could have seen
what tomorrow held for me
these wrists never would have shown red

Verse 2

Betrayed by my heart
is this my destiny
Wipe these tears from my eyes
this nightmare
is it not-an illusion

Chorus

And yet-I reach out
call out for-the one
That brought this pain and sorrow
the loss of innocence
I still believe in
the one
Something that time-and silence
hasn't taken from me
the one

Verse 3

Taste the bitterness of defeat
for the one-unforgiven
Judgement placed upon my soul
shattered pieces of yesterdays past
memories torn

Verse 4

Still-within a winters snow
I have held a rose
Of all that is left of me inside
what the one
could not take away

Chorus

And yet-I reach out
call out for-the one
That brought this pain and sorrow
the loss of innocence
I still believe in
the one
Something that time-and silence
hasn't taken from me
the one

Bridge

Repeat Verse 1

Repeat Chorus....Fade out on last line...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
