I hear them clamor far away Outside the realm of pensive thought Inside the room that I've been brought Inside the room where I should stay At least that's what they seem to say And if I try to run away There's hell to pay if I get caught
They look at me with weary eye Like I'm a puzzle to be solved Insanity that's unresolved And though I gladly let them try To break me free from my mind's lie I know that in the by and by I'll never really be involved
For I live here inside my head And I can say not only me...
A solitary figure Sits quiet in the twilight Her mind echoes their ridicules Her heart is full of pain She'd cry if she had any tears But now she's all cried out And feels the cold caress her As she waits for night to come To walk home in the darkness Where things are less defined With features more forgiving In softened moonlight glow She hums a song to cheer herself And soon she's on her way A lonely girl who hides herself From light and bright of day
the fire of love surrounds me passion's skin beauty's smile the sum of my desire finds itself in your eyes and though there have been others you're the only one I see the only one that matters, to me
we dance under the starlight in my arms can you see the sparks when we're together sparks ignite what will be my heart is catching fire a want for what our love could be is burning on the inside, of me
and so I pull you closer when we touch feel the heat a kiss...
I sit in the night and study a star that's just out of reach that's just what you are. A heavenly body a beautiful light that's here for a moment and gone with the night. And even if I could convince you to stay, you'd still be miles away.
A revenant slowly shuffles into view And stares with vacant eyes as she goes by A castaway lost in a sea of cars With S.O.S. scrawled on cardboard signs And shopping carts to trundle all the dreams She drags around behind her with her life
