The old wounds are new again
Fresh tears start to fall again
Pain that was suppressed has broken free again
Loss of what once was mine has taken hold of me again.
I shy away to tell
Stories of time gone by
Who would listen to them, I beg?
For everyone has their own load to shed.
Yet today, there is no energy left
To hold myself together. Let my walls crumble
As I break for just one day.
Drives away the joy, this fear
My fear of survival, drives away love
Fear is purple, like a bruise
Awalys hurting, constant reminder
Of pain, of lost joyful days.
I try, try hard to be everywhere
At beck and call, at others mercy
Yes and yes to all
Spreading smiles? Not that important, no.
But somehow, in the crowd and yet alone
Always alone, when all are done taking from you
Always taking away, spirits of my spirit
So much for happiness.
Let us set down the rules, once again
Explain the game,
Dictate word by word what will follow
Live life, from where we left off
All we need is a little more courage
A little push off the edge, once again.
With the wind in my hair and the silence of the drive
The curve of the road, the long stretch of concrete
The open sky, splashed with blue
Threatened by the glory of the setting sun
Turning the world red
A reminder of the death of the day
While the night crawls slowly up the sky.
