    The Winds Of Time

    The winds of time erode away The memories of our past, Leaving us with shadowy thoughts That disappear too fast. And so we cling with all our might And try to hold them near, All the things for which we care, And those that we hold dear. No matter how much we try to cling...

    Burning from the inside,

    A heart torn by the dark nights, No one sees the crying angels, Silently you fall down from your throne, Farther away from the storm inside, Be prepared to run, be prepared to hide, They don't understand the beating of your heart, The paintings on your skin of red and blue...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    I Feel I Have Never Existed I am in the water,
