My Stranger

September 19th, 2009

Stranger in the alley
Venom on her lips
Painted nails
Red to the tips
It was so dark outside
But you’d have to be blind not to see
The hurt in her eyes
Shining so visibly
She was freckled in goosebumps
But warm to the touch
And deep in her eyes
She had been hurt so much
Years of pain live in her
She grew up alone
And when wanting to talk
There was nobody home
And her eyes spoke to me
They were words she’d never say
Everything she’d ever loved
Has been taken away
It’s hard to believe
All that you can tell
The look in her eyes
Showed her walk through hell
And her weak appearance
Was all too wrong
Because alone in an alley
This stranger was strong

Waiting For The Rain

September 13th, 2009

You say I don’t know you
But I’m sure I know you better
You’re staying in alone
Just to be under the weather
Pushing me away
But I know just who you are
You could take a step past me
But you’re taking this too far

[Chorus:]
Waiting for the rain
Cause you know it’s on its way
Just lock away the pain
There could be a better day
And all you want to do
Is sit around and cry
Stop waiting for the rain
If you want to stay dry

I know that something’s wrong
It shines clearly in your eyes
But your smile never fades
Even when it’s all a lie
Looking at you
Fills my heart in pain
Because I lost you
When you stepped into the rain

[Chorus:]
Waiting for the rain
Cause you know it’s on its way
Just lock away the pain
There could be a better day
And all you want to do
Is sit around and cry
Stop waiting for the rain
If you want to stay dry

Hear the thunder
Feel the lightning
Deep inside
This storms so frightening
And I acknowledge you’re brave
Acknowledge that you’re strong
But deep inside
This solution is so wrong

[Chorus:]
Waiting for the rain
Cause you know it’s on its way
Just lock away the pain
There could be a better day
And all you want to do
Is sit around and cry
Stop waiting for the rain
If you want to stay dry

Silent

September 12th, 2009

I tiptoe behind you
Silent and careful
I mustn’t make a sound
You don’t sense me
And your footsteps become mine
And to see the world
Only through your eyes
Would be a miracle
Because I’m caught in your drift
And I only see you
Slightly curious
Slightly stalking
You can run
And I’d keep walking
I take this trail
Without you knowing
You’re so emotionless
No feelings showing
And soon my path ends at your house
No other place that I should go
Ideas rushing too fast to slow down
Impulse is the only thing I know
And silence falls upon the night
A creaking sound outside your door
Was this the right thing to do
Falling silent on your floor
