It hurt too much just looking at you.. from across the room,
So I got up, walked across and babbled,
Thing is, you babbled back,
All night we babbled, we giggled,
After that fateful night,
Dates were had, many fun dates,
Now twenty years down the line, here we still are,
Still in love, happily ever after

Still in love, happily ever after,
Happy he won, yet another bafta.
Success was his aim,
And love was his game.
His wife found out, and smiles turn to laughter.

His wife found out, and smiles turned to laughter
when she discovered
it was she who he was after.

It was she who he was after,
All those years, he tracked her down,
A teenage runaway,
Her parents hired him to find her.

Battered and bruised, he found her,
Lying in that filthy alley,
Sobbing, bedraggled,
She looked up at him,
Her saviour.

Her savior...
wasn't a gallant knight in shining armor,
didn't save her from a dragon,
or freed her from a tower.

Her savior...
didn't ride off into the distance on a white steed,
married her the next day,
and lived happily ever after.

Her savior,
had fought and lost,
leaving her alone yet again.
leaving her with the conclusion the no one can free her

And so her savior,
escaped from the tower,
defeated the dragon,
and ran home to find a new life.
Her savior is herself.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

Her savior is herself.
Writing rather than slicing,
Singing rather than crying,
and forgiving rather than hating.

Moving on to a world full of love and warmth,
In the arms of the one she loves.

Check out my website The Wandering Squirrel

Working on a new draft of Tomorrow and a first draft of a dystopian-ish novel. We'll see what actually gets written, lol.

In the arms of the one she loves.
She knows he is hers.
He tells her so, every night.
It makes her smile, and even blush.
Does she deserve someone like him?
It makes her wonder, but in the end.
She knows she does.

She knows she does
She knows she can
No chance to fail
To win is her plan

To win is her plan
She knows that she can
The only thing holding her back
Is that CK is at the end of the pack
Try, try though you all may do
I am like gum on your shoe

I just stick to you.
It doesn't matter what I do.
I guess what they said was true.
Letting go is long overdo.
This is me, letting go of you.
Hurting me was nothing new.

you hurt her too,
didn't you.
not even love can fix me.
so go now, just leave me be.
find another, someone to keep.

because I want to,

As if I could let go of you.
The price of loving you was steep.
You played me the fool, everyone knew.

You played me the fool, everyone knew.
In a heartbeat, I would take you back.
I was smitten with your warm soft mew.
Knowing that my heart again will wrack.

Knowing that my heart again will wrack,
You taunt me with your smile and eyes.
Like a freight train speeding down the track,
You derail me with your deceitful lies.

You derail me with your deceitful lies.
When you bat those big blue eyes.
I fail to recognize your unique disguise.
Many times leading to my demise.

Many times leading to my demise..
I believe your twisted evil lies..
Your laughter rings amidst my cries..
It only stops when my heart dies..

It only stops when my heart dies..
Ink will dry within my quill
No one again hearing my cries
Beating within my chest is still

Beating within my chest is still..
The last remnant of my will..
My strength has ebbed and left me to die..
My tombstone marked with just one word.. Why?

My tombstone marked with just one word...Why?

I gaze toward the hole in my socs and sigh
With one eye closed
And one eye open
This is how I begin to cry
Second to come to mind while this fate I battle to deny
Is Cannibus-Black, and my friend Jack
Rolled to a joint -
I Puff. My High

Now enroute to Dubai shall I fly
Past my tombstone, caused by thy lie
A perception maybe ?
A lie could it be, I wonder why
Love is for all
Recieved by some who may not even need try
Up up up I say , now you cannot die
Lest it be you know for sure , that the love you share
By a lie did it not die...

Flames burning accross the sky

Flames burning across the sky,
need no cannabis, a natural high.

Pinks, reds, oranges and purples too.
From a fire breathing dragon of blue.

From a fire breathing dragon of blue..
To a moon made of green cheese..
You think I'm crazy and it may be true..
But I ask you to wave to the unicorn please..

Waving to the unicorn, nose itchy, I feel a sneeze..
You crazy, not. Looking into my mirror, that's crazy..
The reflection clear, hey that's not Patrick Swayze..
A moon made of green cheese, makes me drool..
I like nursery rhyme characters, am I the fool...

I know others think me not so cool..
I generally really don't mind as a rule..
I understand life can be really cruel..
I know you think I'm just another tool..
I am the only one who sees me as a jewel..

I am the only one who sees me as a jewel

to play the fool
I played the fool
for loving you
for losing you

Losing a friend like you..
Would cost me everything I knew..
For it was my heart that held you true..
And loving you has broken my heart in two..
