A quaint little house on my street
Deep within a man, wrestling defeat
No one to turn to, no where to go
An overgrown garden and one lone crow
Sagging roof overhead, like a falling sky
Smiles and happiness, living a lie
Bleeding soul seeps out of doors
Coloring the flood of rain that pours
A lifetime of desires never set free
A depression locked heart to which there is no key
Sorrow strikes like a Cobra, wrenching the knife
One mans way of evading his strife
Depression reaching out with a clenching fist
Leaving a man enveloped by mist
The freedom to love, live, laugh
As I do gaze into the starry sky
My eyes do meet your blazing azure stare
My heart does sing an arietta sigh
Musing that I cannot ever be there
Sometimes when I do sweetly dream of you
My mind perceives that it can't ever be
Although my sentiment for you is true
I may at times mistake your love for me
If once there comes a time that we do meet
Assure me that you will not shy away
If ever our warm spirits truly greet
I hope that we will ever bide that way
And while the span between us may be far
You will forever be my shining star
How can I not feel my heart, beating very fast?
How can I not lose my smile when I see your face downcast?
What is it that makes me want to run to you as soon as I feel fear?
What is it that makes me want to erase all of your hurt and tears?
Whatever it may be, I know one thing is true
There will never be another person that I love as much as you.
Hiding in the pale moonlight
Fleeing through the trees
Native people and their plight
Forced down to their knees
Who were we to impose the changing?
Why couldn't anybody see?
It wasn't them that deserved estranging
It was only you and me
Coming across the oceans
We brought ignorance, bias and disease
Why was it them and not our selfish notions...
Humbled to their knees?
The colors of our love
Swirled in the summer sky
Entertwining hues of utter bliss
Rainbows of emotion
Enveloping the world
Angels here on Earth
Dance into the sunset
Illuminate the sky
Replace the stars, one-by-one
Carry me away
Clear blue-green water
Crashing tide creeping ashore
Yielding of the sea
Dancing, swirling, floating
Surrounding me so sweetly
Touching, tingling, thrilling
The sharing of a simple love
