Reflections

Part of a bigger story,
The Chords comin Later: ;)
~~~ †~~~ † ~~~

I been out driving, just my thoughts and the radio doin the talkin
Sometimes out walkin, just my shadow, when it all comes round whirlin by,
Eddie youíre a fool, Eddie youíre a fool to cry,
Reflections, rejections, watching life go by with eyes closed,
With ears shut, with head turned, my voice gone,
from sunlight, to moonlight, the darkest Night, Iím frozen, Iím burnin, Iím searchin, I feel Iím Dyin,
I can see the reflections of a wasted life, go spinning by, In front of blurry eyes,
Reflections of what might be, what once was, what coulda been,
The Green things, the living things, once thriving, surviving, filled with the seed of tomorrow
Now theyíre changing, there ashen, there burning, there fading from view,
This world is a cold place, a hard race, a sad state,
I feel Iím dyin, All this sorrow, traded for all the tomorrows,
Reflections of life known, of life lived, of life shared,
Reflections fill my eyes and give me sound, give me strength to show me mercy,
If theres justice, and mercy, if Love rules, if Love rules,
Then Take me home, back to my old home, and fill my eyes,
But Oh, how my journey ends here, it starts there, it stays here, †
Take me back to my old home, This next step, the next step, the very next step for me,
A fire, a bad place, a very hard place to be, through the fire, it all burns away,
The bodies worn, the mind aches, my heart hurts, the soul fades, the minds gone, the minds gone,
No I donít want death, I want life, I want life, but I donít want to see more sad tomorrows,
but when the sun sets, the lights gone, its all a little more real now,
I donít mind goin, but I hate to leave any loved ones cryin
Oh Lord, take me back to my old home, my old ways, my old love, my first love, my very first love now,
a strong love, a very strong love, and filled with the seed of tomorrow,
