The leaves Stop rustling As they begin The bittersweet song Called silence, And you feel The way It echoes Within itself Into your mind. The birds Cease to sing As they wait For the moment That will end you For you shall End yourself. The silence Is singing Singing Finding it's way Into your soul And around The knife You are holding In your hand As you tremble Within silence, The silence That has begun To consume you. The silence, Which is Making you Think about What you are About to do, Though to think Is not Wat is wanted. You cannot do this. You begin to cry As you put The knife down. The silence Has saved you From yourself.
Now we meet We give our names Talk and realize We're the same. Months and months Have now gone by I start to think of you And sigh.
Soon comes love For all our days And in a beach house We do stay. We walk together Holding hands Leaving footprints In the sand.
We put our feet Into the waves For now we think Of younger days. Brightened sunset Over the sea Lights up your blond hair And makes it look streaked.
You and I Now growing old Skin all wrinkled Hands are cold. But if you rest Your hand in mine We'll feel the warmth Time after time.
Now we feel Our time will end We feel content As lovers and friends. Lying here We close our eyes To sleep forever For most things die. * * * What a life To have with you But still I know It won't be true.
They say not to judge And that all have a chance They say not to rank them Without giving them A second glance But now, I am sorry For this I have to do: If you judge me By this rainbow I will start judging you.
Come and play The dancing notes Singing with the melody. Hum and sway 'Till thoughts provoked Begin to block out felony. Words like bubbles Flying high Far above Shakespearean worlds. Watch the couples Dance, and eye The lady's lovely skirts that twirl. Come and play Your singing lute Come and give your brightest song. Let me taste the sweet, sweet fruit Of the music That can do no wrong.
You have been holding The ropes of my mind You can be nice So why can't you be kind? You're all for talking But you never say a thing Why can't you see All the pain that you bring? Pain like a wave And the wave like a wheel Tell me now How do you think I should feel? You push me from you Then pull me away From anyone else Who might love me someday So now I'm leaving For forever or more I'll put you away And I'll lock up the door I'm stopping the wave And I'm stopping the wheel 'Cause nobody ever Tells me how to feel.
