    Lost Sleep

    I now cannot sleep unless you are there to hold, I now cannot dream of silver or of gold, I wait for my dreams to fold as they crash into every one else I know, I grow tired I grow so old, for all of this you never show Hidden away like a shadow of love, these are the...

    You and the Bottle

    I know that you and the bottle are buddies since way back when you say that whiskey stood by you, when you couldn't find a friend but sweetheart, I can't help but worry you need it more each passing day and when you crawl inside the bottle the best of you just crawls away Chorus...

    Unwanted

    Not the best song lyrics I've ever written but still I'm posting them. Throw it away, All your dreams, They're worthless, they say. They threw me out, Tossed me about, Pulled my life from me. All me hope drained away, In a secret, They put you down. Stand up, that's what we're...

    Don't Leave Me Alone Today

    VERSE 1I have faced each day with the blade,Found no answers at all,I hold on until the end,But slowly it gets colder,Each night draws in my tears.VERSE 2You say not to run away,Yet you have left over and over again,Letting my light go,Fading away my childhood,Where has my...

    Splintered...

    I hear the pieces splinter, And in that moment time stands still. Shattering, falling, breaking, Like rain that pours unendingly. Pain courses through every fibre, It twists its jagged edges, embedding itself until It is all that remains. The pieces are so small, The pain can't...

    The Heart that bleeds' Greed There could have

    been sorrow , there could have been pain but yet all i can remember is the void. The void of feelings once felt, it's essence leaving me in it's wake. Teasing, taunting me to chase only to find more of the same. My heart is a time bomb of desire, i have no control when i...

    Hiding...

    You paint on a smile, You wear a mask, To hide the cracks and the pain, So people don't ask. Only your eyes, Truly give you away, The things you hide, To get through the day. Look in the mirror, What do you see? A handful of demons, With faces of glee. Torturing your soul...

    Lost In Your Heart-beat

    Take a step back, Look at your life, Put it in perspective, See what it's worth. Through the good and bad times, You said you'd be there, But now you're gone, It just aint fair. And I'm the one that's been abandoned, Left behind on my own, Tangled in the mess you've made. But I...

    Is numbness an emotion? How can it not be when, at times, It’s all I ever feel?   Sometimes I wonder if it has a mind of its own It’s very deceptive, Clever, And cunning. At first it seeps into yourheart, Makes you cold, Weak, Vulnerable. Then it envelopes your...
