Death by murder- death by chance
Death by secret night romance
Death by number- paint the lines
Death in color, or black and lie
Legs are shaking
Please forgive me
I’ve been sinning
Sun is bright. Birds are singing.
The air is thick and heavy.
Knock, knock- no one’s home.
Key turns and we’re alone.
Red roses on piano keys
She's on her knees.
Black sky against green leaves
A stir of emotions, thoughts racing through-
Can't help but keep my mind on you.
Giving a little, in hopes of a lot,
I'm praying I am good enough
They wear their business suits in public
With their business faces, too.
But at night they tear their stage sets down
And pay their backdoor dues.
I'm hanging on to hopes and dreams,
Afraid of losing everything..
Hating myself for breaking the rules;
Disgusted that I fell for you.
Sweetest lie I’ve ever heard-
A blank shadow of the deepest word.
Turned from champagne to vinegar on your tongue-
Spilling from a mouth that’s far too young.
Closure is a noose, I’m finding now.
I am breaking loose and crying out.
It fits like a tragedy.
In the mirror I can see..
