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...

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
