Love is only a gamble; I fold
my hands across my lap
And stare into the darkness overhead
for just one answer.
Behind me, the battle rages on.
Rains beat upon my window,
And the shadows upon my wall
are bleeding black.
I fumble amongst the sheets
but there will be no sleep tonight,
just a prayer that life so far
has been an elaborate dream.
That you haven't truly left me,
that these lies are truths oncemore,
and that I won't wake up this morning
all alone again.
The stars may never show this eve
to keep the silver lining
shining. I wait for someone to come along
and close these tired eyes.
And the leaves whisper your name,
but it is never off my mind,
I'll sleepwalk the whole world backwards
to find your lips pressed close to mine
I had a dream of dreams,
My mind is ripping at the seams,
Without you in my arms and underneath these sheets.
We were only seventeen
ready to take on any schemes.
I remember your face right before the tears fell
And the blurry streetlights came to view.
On the corner of Broadway and personal hell,
You froze over my heart, right on cue.
Your blazing eyes pierce through the fog,
set on what you desire,
but soon, it senses you draw near
and flees the passionate fire.
Your prey's wild bite you can't endure;<...
Silken moonbeams descend from the heavens
To unite my love and I oncemore.
As I climb to her gentle arms, my knees weaken.
Looking back upon faces of the damned,
The flame licks at the invisible souls before my eyes. It is the torch of passion I hold for only you, yet its glow has never reached the softness of your skin, its warmth never touching your heart...
The streetlights cast,
the shadows dance,
her pallid face.
She stands alone
in fields of fog,
An angel fallen
far from grace.
These nights linger in my mind like a hiss of white steam from 16mm black-and-white goodbyes. As Empire 243 silently pushes drag me away against my will, the hallowed tunnels envelop these words in...
