Empty Streets

 

 

Eros

Eros prays we build our house upon him. Sees how well it stands, how long we last built upon the sand, on the idol Eros. So when he's gone can I do what Eros does? What he does for us, he does for us. And when he's gone can it be the way it was? Bring him back to us. Is he all we've got our house built upon? On the idol Eros? When our haven wavers in the wind and walls all beg to be abandoned, blame the idol Eros. When the raven calls and all his melodies all long to be forgotten, blame the idol Eros. What's left to say but I loved the way it was? ..Cause I said I would, I've done all I could. See what he's done to us? Oh the idol Eros. When our haven wavers in the wind and walls all beg to be abandoned, when the raven calls and all his melodies all long to be forgotten, blame the idol Eros.

 

Seemingly Sleepy

Wake me up to the sound of my feet upon the ground get me out, get me through give myself a talking to. I'm awake and although well it's not my place to say, I brush the hair from my ears and slowly walk away. Cause this is the day this is the day. Early to bed, early to rise, seemingly sleeping with open eyes. Early to bed, early to rise, sleeping still all pride aside. Waking up to the sound of my feet above the ground gets me out, follows through with my fortunes to renew I'm awake and I know that it's no one's place to say. I toss the hair from my ears and slowly walk away. Cause this is the day. This is the day. Early to bed, early to rise, seemingly sleeping with open eyes. Early to bed, early to rise, sleeping still all pride aside.

 

Empty Streets

The city feels clean this time of night just empty streets and me walking home to clear my head. And though it came as no surprise. I'm affected more than I had guessed. By what was said. If this loves not meant to be. If a hearts not ready to open. If the naked eye won't see. It's broken. It's that quiet time before the dawn. And I'm half past making sense of it. Was I wrong? Should I think to give it all. In a world where not much ever seems to last long. If this loves not meant to be. If a hearts not ready to open. If the naked eye won't see. It's broken.

 

Rainy Days

The day is cold. The day is cold and dark and dreary. And it rains. And the wind is never weary. Ivy still clings to the wall. At every gust the dead leaves fall. And the day is dark. And the day is dark and dreary. Be still sad heart. Oh be still and cease repining. Behind the clouds is the sun still shining. Thy fate is the fate of all. Into life some rain must fall. Some days must be dark. Some days must be dark and dreary.

 

The Rest of You

You say love has given up yet here's my heart, still filling up. Hoping that you will follow. Poetry inside my head. Thoughts sublime that must be said. Here am I, explaining why I care. Still feel the warmth of you. Can't get enough of you. Still think the world of you. Still want the rest of you. Still feel the best if yet to come. In the heart where love can grow. Takes to time for it to show. But sometimes we just don't realize. Look into my eyes and see. A simple truth you..ll find in me. Here am I, explaining why.. Still feel the warmth of you. Can't get enough of you. Still think the world of you. Still want the rest of you. Still feel the best if yet to come.

 

Sunrise Comes Too Soon

Sunrise following our goodbyes. Following the night like you. Disappeared too soon. But it stays. Hear it in the morning waves. Spinning from the night with you. Underneath the half moon. Close my eyes. And you'll still be here with me. Close my eyes. The sunrise comes too soon. So I lay lounging though and endless day. Dreaming of tonight with you. And everything we'll do. Its just time. From mundane to the sublime. From waiting for tonight with you. Underneath the half moon. Close my eyes. And you'll still be here with me. Close my eyes. Well I might come over. Just to tide me over cause the waiting might kill me. If I don't come over. Why does time move slowly. When I'm not with you. And the sunrise comes too soon.

 

Keep Up

There is a kind of mood today. Where everything is going my way. Come on don't fight it. You like it. You try it. Come here baby and dance with me. You see if you let go. Feeling the flow. Come here baby take a chance with me. Keep up with me. If you're wanting something more. Keep on moving. To the rhythm on the floor.

 

Heaven

I searched for hours and hours. But only found more shoes. More points of view. As if I knew.

 

Beautiful

Here we are. Finally together. Holding close. Never release this feeling, this moment. My dream is now alive in you. Cause you're beautiful. Something in your eyes tell me I have found a love that never dies. I don..t have to dream. Reality is beautiful in you. It's never felt more true. There you are. Finally the answer. Take my hand. Never release the sweetness, the magic, the happiness I found in you.

 

Meant To Be

You tell me love is standing next to you. There's not much about love that I understand. And here you are again despite the imposable.. improbable. That's how I know this love is more than usual. This is just what I need. And here you are again to take my hand. You stay with me and take another chance. This is what was meant to be. Took so long for you and me. I figured out the way to go. Yes I know you told me so. Now I have the eyes to see. Some things make sense more than others. Things of the heart seldom do. But here you are again. And now I understand. I'll take this gift you've given me. This is what was meant to be. Took so long for you and me. I figured out the way to go. Yes I know you told me so. Now I have the eyes to see.

 

All For Nothing

It's all for nothing. The love we see. A broken offering. A sad old dream. So what it used to be is not enough. It's all for nothing if we give up. When I think of all the dreams we used to share. All the days, all the night when you where there. All my words upon the lines you used to keep. When I think of all the promises, it cuts so deep. It's all for nothing. The love we see. A broken offering. A sad old dream. So what it used to be. Is not enough. It's all for nothing. If we give up. It's so crazy that we ran away from here. Tell me what good can I take from all my tears. Tell me baby cause I know you feel the same. It's crazy that we came this far and now we can't stay. It's all for nothing. The love we see. A broken offering. A sad old dream. So what it used to be. Is not enough. It's all for nothing. If we give up.

 

Nothing Left To Say

Another day has come and gone. And I've been holding in.. Not holding on. Feeling out of place, I I'm wanting to escape, I I pack my bags with nothing left to say. It's when I think I've figured out. The figures simply turning inside out. Burn before it catches, I I rummage through the ashes, I I turn the page with nothing left to say.
