Words from you are the best ones.

Look with me

July 1, 2019

VERSE I
The curtains would part to show your face,
in a fairytale sight, a dream from a star,
evenings spent together would merge blissfully,
and young love would smile from afar.

It’s the tiny thorn that pricked my feet,
would bring you to my side,
sorrow, pain, and fear of time,
away to seek and hide.

PRE-CHORUS
And through the windows we could see,
what I meant to you, and what you meant to me.

CHORUS
Night rains down, and our spirits rise up,
soaring through sunsets and kissing the moon,
we tear down the walls that cage us in,
knowing we are to be reunited soon.

VERSE II
Crumpled letters we each wrote,
now lie in the ashes of the smouldering fire,
they contained the truths we spoke,
but the world still called our love a liar.

It’s the songs I wrote and sang alone,
sitting under the tree that watched us grow,
that reminds me of how unaware I remained,
distant from the tears and woe.

PRE-CHORUS
And through the windows we could see,
whatever it was, it was not meant to be.

CHORUS
Night rains down, and our spirits rise up,
soaring through sunsets and kissing the moon,
we tear down the walls that cage us in,
knowing we are to be reunited soon.

BRIDGE
I will stand strong, a flame of our love,
the candle that burnt away,
never before did it come to a point,
where I had nothing more to say.

Stop the rains, please, I’m afraid,
they’ll also extinguish the second candle I lit,
no one will ever understand the pain,
and the love I rebuilt bit by bit. 

PRE-CHORUS
And through the windows we could see,
not anymore did I love thee. 

CHORUS
Night rains down, and our spirits rise up,
soaring through sunsets and kissing the moon,
we tear down the walls that cage us in,
knowing we are to be reunited soon.
