Too Late

I just want to take you away from everyone and keep you stashed under my pillow
And then I'd take you out simply for my own pleasure and wear you when the occasions special
Then I'd put you on like a diamond so I can sparkle and be the envy of my friends
I'd proudly hold the leash that I'd have you on so you can't stray and follow me around all day

Compulsion has stained me I'm nervously cradling our young love without known limits love 
Like a butterfly cupped in my hands I peek in to see beauty trapped confined it flutters
Then it leaves behind colorful dust to remind me of the special times we've spent
But of course it has to leave my clutch but enough's never enough to make a dent
And in time it will end and there really isn't hope for the two of us
But right now I give in…

People help the people

God knows what is hiding in that weak and drunken heart
I guess you kissed the girls and made them cry
Those hardfaced queens of misadventure
God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes
A fiery throng of muted angels giving love and getting nothing back

God knows what is hiding in that world of little consequence
Behind the tears, inside the lies, a thousand slowly dying sunsets.
God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
I guess that loneliness came knocking..

Rise & shine

I want to be alone for a while
I want earth to breathe to me
I want the waves to grow loud
I want the sun to bleed down
To bleed down
I want to see the wounded moon
I want the sea to break through
I want it all to be gone tomorrow
So i've come to say goodbye
Say goodbye
See the waves go down
See the moon alone
See the world unshown
I raise my head and whisper
