I gaze into your eyes
and the stars in the sky
and I'm caught up
to the moon
But there's nobody here,
it's just me
and an old battered picture of you
Your smile's a little faded
and the city lights are
overrated
as they glare against the glass
that holds your memory
to my wall
when you're so far away.
And I'm still here,
sitting by the phone,
thinking of you
and I wonder if you're still there,
waiting for me to call
And in my mind
I've crossed this line
at least a thousand times before
but in reality,...

listen to the wind crying out
trapped in what is wrong
confusion is what life's about
vicious circle while you go along
and i've been places you'll never be
and i've seen faces you'll never see
sinking deeper into the abyss
being pulled further down
fighting quicksand what is this
beneath the voids i drown
speak to the voice fading now
lost in what was never
illusion is what makes you bow
wilting dreams pull the lever
and i've been places you'll never be
and i've seen face you'll never see
sinking deeper into the abyss
being...

how does it feel to die
staring it right in the face
how does it feel to lie
knowing it makes the blood race
why does it end this way
leaving an empty void inside
why does it stop today
taking that remainder of pride
left to my own devices
a moment that bares crisis
tears fall from my eyes
inside i'm devastated
heart of stone that cries
my soul is now aspirated
what is remaining to take
sober thoughts that are lonely
what else can you forsake
my love my one and only
where's the light at the end
now that times standing...

collision course into the storm
trapped in this realization
in the calm i feel warm
burden clouded by sensation
i am one with the times
surrounded by all this contempt
i am judged for their crimes
captive in a cell called resent
seeping from the light
my veins are bruised
distorted in the night
fragile mind i'm abused
death condemned as i awake
blinded by this saturation
madness parts and i break
complicated by my obligation
i am one with this reason
locked inside vivid complication
i am one with this treason
driven...

Love songs give me a heartache when I'm all alone.
I'm missing you but I can't even talk to you on the phone.
I always dial your number but you're never there
or else I get nervous when I think about the way the light hits your hair.
I'm losing the edge in my heart
I'm happy when it's over
almost wish that things would
never start.
Romance is dead, that's what they tell me anyway
I got you flowers but you were gone
I'll save them for a rainy day
I remember the night that we talked for hours in my car
I'd like to write a poem about you but I...

Written by Tony Pena (Quill-in-Heart)
I tried a diamond †ring round your finger †
But you held out for a band of black coal†
Married to the memories that linger
In the boarded up tavern of your soul
I lit a lamp to help†you find your way †
But this guide's tour you didn't want to see
As your heart turned blind and started to stray†
Miles away from roses and reverie †
Chorus
There's a little girl inside who you †put †under lock and key
Like long lost family heirlooms and favorite jewelry
You let her out for air once and she sang like a chickadee
The lady I fell in love with...

The thief wears tats of your heart on a chain
Strutting on streets from misery to Main
Accessories he needs to make him whole
To make some sense of all the things he stole
Like a nightmare leaching through to daylight
Shadows hiding hopes and dreams out of sight
Draining the last bit of virtue from you
Till all thatís left is a puddle of blue
Chorus
Iíve got to beg, borrow or steal a dream
Worthy enough of your heartís golden gleam
A ticket for better lives to redeem
I wish I knew all the tricks in the book
The right approach for the perfect...

Oh to have you.
Oh to hold you.
Oh to need you.
I do, I need you.
It's true.
Every once in a little while
I try to be strong and I try to smile.
My life was perfect until I met you, it's true.
Now all that I do is think about you.
How to have you.
How to hold you.
How I need you.
It's true, I think about you.
I do.
How the light shines from your eyes,
how when you cry I want to die,
how my heart grows when I see you smile.
How could this be?
Somehow you've set me free.
Every once in a little while
I try to be...

You and me: walking 'round the Christmas tree,
talking 'bout the things we wanna do.
You alone: thinking of home
and how you need to get away from me.
And now I'm here
I'm counting the stars
I'm counting the scars in my heart
Because I do
miss
you
at times.
Every day I count the stars,
I count the ways I've cried.
Before I ever knew you I never needed you again.
Before I ever wanted you I never wanted to die.
Every day I 'm looking around for a better way to run away.
Every day I've tried to look away but all I see is you...
