to veronica


I know that things can get hard
Trying to run away
I don’t want to put you behind bars
I just want to give you a place to stay
I know that you are trying
To start a better day
But I’ve been slowly dying
Since you’ve gone away
Im sitting in the darkest blue
Still waiting for the dawn
The jugglers’ going out tonight
He’s got his slippers on


Oh my sweet veronica
This is neither the time nor the place
But its now or never
Or No note whatsoever
I’ll be Gone without a trace


Fire around the auditorium
A blaze covers the stairs
There something in your eyes
Im stuck inside your stare
No way out and no way in
The lovely and insane
Your words are sweetest cure
To take away the pain
Though these walls are coming down
My knees don’t seem to bend
For im Lost inside a moment
I pray will never end.


Oh my sweet veronica
This is neither the time nor the place
But its now or never
Or No note whatsoever
I’ll be Gone without a trace


Do not ask the reason
Do not ask the rhyme
Some things better left unsaid
Some things are to sublime.
There is no need to say the words
It’s not told by your lips
The story is told through silence
A feeling has been eclipsed.
The truth is all lie.
Lies are just the truth.
Nothing makes sense.
When your life is wasted youth.


Oh my sweet veronica
This is neither the time nor the place
But its now or never
Or No note whatsoever
I’ll be Gone without a trace
