Electric Lady


Tragic Dream Poem by Electric Lady


I'm just a tragic girl living in a tragic world
I'm lost in a fairy tale with no happy ending
So I close my eyes and try to imagine one
As my mind drifts off to another place, behold
I look so pretty with no makeup on my face
But my heart breaks every time I look at you
It seems as if the world is falling apart
Inside my very soul
These lies you turn into lullabies
Are more attractive than your actual charms
I can't keep guessing with you
There's not enough hours in the day
Though my spirit follows your every move
Love is a crazy cycle of events
The tide is too expensive
And my life is on the line
I hate the way you make me feel
It's like I'm living on a prayer
You strip me naked and I am bare
This ring on my finger is sacred
If I take it off
I'll end up losing my self-worth, alas
You hold me tight with all your might
Promise me I won't slip away this time
Promise me this tragic dream will end soon
Tears are like fireworks
As they explode
The crowd gets excited
And we are a crowd, me and you
I imagine this to be a happy ending.
