Touched by a revealing light
I look into the setting sun’s rays
Serenity overwhelms me once more
So many words I want to say
The chances I could have taken.
The things I could have said.
The flame that you awakened.
That voice inside my head.
She could use a cigarette
She says she’s not addicted yet
But I see it in her eyes
When everything seems to go dark
I can see clearly
I can feel it all
Unspoken words bounce off the prison in my mind
You say I can be anything and do anything
Then you turn around and confine my mind
Erase my thoughts
Shatter my dreams and make me blind
Blood runs through the streets invisibly
Violence seems to have a history
No sure way to get out and away
So the troubles in her life seem to stay
The wind blows hard as the sky grows dark. The moon shines full; a lazy halo surronds it becuas eif the swirling mist.
Lights are out, streets are quiet. I am alone.
The world is silent. The darkness moves. Nothing at all is here.
As the storm rages on and hope’s light is dimmed
The world carries on and doesn’t look in
Lives are lost and things are destroyed
Yet for some reason, help won’t deploy
