Hurt and alone, she walked the aging streets of downtown. She’s been hurtin’ for so long – her hands worn from the weight. ♦ How do I tell her the truth? The weight she carries a lie. Our past not worth the dirt it’s buried under – I’m done. ♦ Her eyes tell me she
Time to make things right. My life worth fightin’ for – Ain’t nobody can stop me. It’s time to beat down the walls. ♦ They’re done holdin’ me down. No wall stronger than me. I’m gonna beat the odds – Ain’t nobody can stop me. ♦ I’m not much – not yet, but I’m all
Forget me; forget me not. I’m standin’ my ground – yesterday’s dirt piled high. My heart beatin’ to a new tune. ♦ Pretty words by the dozen offered on a silver music sheet. Singin’ with the man on the moon, they suspect me unworthy – ah well. ♦ Pretty words dazzle in the sun, but
Steppin’ off the bus in a strange new town. Young and alone with nowhere in mind – Where do I go from here? Surrounded by smiles with a destination. The July sun remindin’ me of home. Summer the season of freedom in my hometown. Long gone from there, mimicking the smiles I see.
Abandoned night after night, weeping in your sleep. Never that far to start, I hear your sobs beating on the stars. I know you can’t hear me, but I love you. And, in case I never told you, I’m proud of you. Your shoulders straight; your will ironclad. I know you can’t see me, but I’m here. I
I reach out,… but you’re gone. How long – long forgotten. Outside, my pain reaching across the mountains, umoved by anguished pleas, disappearing into the cold March air. Calling the stars to guide my prayers. Looking for hope in the snow. Pure, unstained by sorrow. Renewing itself alongside passing clouds. My name written in white – should they see, hearing my cries. What
As she lay there at night, wondering where it all went wrong. Wondering what ‘she’ did wrong. Escaping the cage only to remain trapped. Still trapped in fear – Its grip unshakable. Unconvinced just yet. One cage replaced by another. Where do you put the hurt when you’re done?… As she lay there at night, under a waning moon. Wrapped inside the arms of innocence.
Her world plastered with loss and loneliness. Nowhere to hide. Nowhere to turn. Cruel words haunting her thoughts… Too many cruel acts leaving their mark. Beaten by love. Nowhere to hide. And nowhere to turn. An empty wallet with nothing left to give. Two little girls needing shoes. Their mother needing a miracle. Her world plastered with loss and loneliness. And nowhere to
Sittin’ on a bench. People goin’ by. Abandoned inside. An empty smile on my lips. Pain hiding behind fake quiet. Memories muddled in misery. Miserable silence suffocating me. A muffled scream breaking silently. People goin’ by. Blind the lot of ’em. Blind to lonely tears. My tears! Washing down the drain. Useless emotion shoved aside.
Trapped inside an invisible cage, looking out in hopeless resignation, your wings long clipped. Life hasn’t been kind to you. Your dreams and desires cover the floor like leaves blowing in the wind on a cold autumn’s day. Hope replaced by sorrow, a lone figure at the edge of the river. Life, mocking your childish
