Twice As Much

So you not forget
My touch, I will just simply
Love you...twice as much`





















Velvet blanket pulled tight
to chin of day

Once bright day that's now become a husk
of its former sunny self
And now shall sleep the night away

Twilight's neither day or night
It's life is measured in minutes
And it's hue is always grey

It's mordant hue, It's somber light
It's job is of transition
It's what tucks in... the drowsy day

Twilight's but a tiny part
But it's a tiny part we trust
and if the day had a heart

T'would be twilight
The darkest time
...of dusk...

Twilight

Twilight...the darkest part of dusk
Velvet blanket pulled tight
to chin of day

Once bright day that's now become a husk
of its former sunny self
And now shall sleep the night away

Twilight's neither day or night
It's life is measured in minutes
And it's hue is always grey

It's mordant hue, It's somber light
It's job is of transition
It's what tucks in... the drowsy day

Twilight's but a tiny part
But it's a tiny part we trust
and if the day had a heart

T'would be twilight
The darkest time
...of dusk...




















Headaches, heartaches and regret
Is all you bring to me (did I mention sorrow?)
So why can't I just forget
And set my sad heart free

I NEVER EVER WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN!
…(At least until tomorrow) ...

You're a burden ‘pon my mind
You're shameless and so shallow
You're uncouth and so unkind
Cr`ude, rude and callow

You're childish, immature
far too juvenile…
To waste my precious time for sure
I've known it all the while

I don't think about you ‘all' the time…
at least not as much as I used to do
Now it's only ‘most' of the time...
like all night through

Headaches, heartaches and regret
Is all you bring to me (did I mention sorrow?)
So why can't I just forget
And set my sad heart free

I NEVER EVER WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN!
…(At least until tomorrow) ...
