First steps without a guide,
First words from deep inside,
First dollar that I've earned,
First day of school where I've learned,
His eyes are closed, his breathing slow,
I wrap around him, but he doesn't know,
I'm here to comfort him, chase away his fears,
I'm his 'shoulder' to cry on, I wipe away his tears,
I once promised that I'd never shed another tear over someone like you.
Here I am, laying as though I were dead or dying -
salt water stinging my eyes once more.
My Heart is filled with anger and hatred,
So pure and liquid like blood,
A busy street, framed by a sidewalk and buildings on each side.
a pawn shop,
I dance around you,
I embrace you're breath,
I hold you close,
From miles off,
Unborn, undead, unloved, unsaid,
Whilst death comes slow, blow by blow,
I suffer still, from lack of will,
I stare, stricken.
Fear immobilizes me.
Every thought I had before,
Sometimes I swear that I'm just out to get me - to ruin my life and make sure I'm not happy...And even though I'm convinced there's no more love in this world, I know now I'm in love beyond all this world.
I may seem cold, but I'm burnin' inside,
there's fire in my eyes-every time that I cry.
