A long time ago, there was a river
where the purest love flowed into the streams, abundant, overflowing with pride in its own vivacious waters
love trickled down rocks, moss, greenery, and into people…
people who lived in society and felt that money was more important than water, this water of love
how funny to think, an essential necessity for life wasn’t as important as something you can live without
the more society built, the less this water was found, ‘the drought’ they called it…
but we all knew… those who could keep the elixir of hope, would one day bring it back.
The stars gleamed profusely through her eyes
it was like a supernova being reborn again
innocence turning into a blossomed tree
the way she smiled, she looked so free
soul ignites with fire, passion burning through the doubts, through the mouths
she looks down, swaying her hips, conveying my truths into her religion of… bliss
I guess I didn’t want to wait around to decide
I was the reason you had me on your mind,
now you’re off on tour
A waiting game, a chasing charade
waking up Paris with flowers in my hair
Persian carpets in the air…
Bringing up everything you knew about us, but it just seems so distant..
You just keep being so persistent
The stars don’t shine in your eyes the way they used to
My galaxy doesn’t reflect in your guitar
My love can’t you believe this is the end?
Sing me another melody
persuade another lady
I know you’ve said this a million times, but baby your tune isn’t changing.
I was induced by your love
Seduced by Poison, conquered my defeat
Questioning why I wasn’t being chosen
I realized your lies so often
The hurt obtained
Left behind so much pain
How could you be so vain?
Said that you loved me but it was never self proclaimed
Respect and faithfulness went hand in hand
So who was that lady who left her earrings on your night stand?
still I can’t get out
She’s all I think about
Can’t let her go
It’s who you know
We came down to watch the world walk by
And all she found was trouble in my eyes
From the sky she pulled me down tonight
Let her go
She moves fast, takes control
And like a heart attack, I know I can’t turn back
