A night Struck from the sky By a torrent of thunder Cold light invading your house As it crashes through your trembling windows And illunminates your fearful figure for seconds Before darkness reigns again. Breathless moments counting Waiting for the low rumble of thunder Follwed by the splashing rain Drizzling itself over the earth A crash A strike of light A drop of rain Then Silence
I hold onto my dreams Like they'll melt into frozen snow Because my hands are the only things keeping them from you. You think there pointless That I should hide myself In the deepest of forests And the darkest of oceans. Put on a mask And be manufactured by this world Hammered into place. But you cannot fit a square peg into a round hole. I will never throw my dreams away. I will tuck them away between music notes And messy scrawl Until we are ready to fly free
Imagine a future Full of bright blinking eyes Gazing at a new unforgiving world Broken hearts are Left to melt on the concrete Dreams flying like doves from the windows. Chaos is paused for a single second Like A giant intake of breath Touch the cold metal of emotion Let it burn you And soak deep into your skin Crystal tears leaking from saddened eyes Piano fighting against the storm A perfect dischord of melody Ebony and ivory clashing swords One moment in time to remember Remember the hurt in this world Remember the people fallen from hate Remember the poets, the ones set to change the world Words spilling from our blood into cracks on the sidewalk Heads silent Eyes open wide They are searching for a reality that has disappeared We just find a new way to think.
This is a song that I wrote to a ukulele piece that my stepbrother (Username: Dubz) made up. Would love suggustions for improvement as this is the first song (besides the Maria Antonia Rap ;) that I have ever wrote.
Which way am I wandering Dreams have led me here before Breeze brushing teary cheeks I close my eyes and wish to soar
Do I dare to ask the questions The answer I'm afraid to know Find the seed of peace And let it grow.
I'm waking up My heart is free I'm no houdini But chains can't hold me Hands reaching for a splintered sky Wings torn and broken I learn to fly.
Watch the seasons slowly falter Rainy days and starry nights Sun dripping like a ripe mango Grab my hands and take flight.
Scared of darkness and of shadows Reflecting on a shrouded past
