The Forest

I found myself at the beginning again.
The clearing broke into a murky depth
Of soft black pines, old oaks in rain
And undergrowth, stealing my every step.

The clearing broke into a murky depth
I found myself all turned around
And undergrowth stealing my every step
So I leave no trail, no route to be found

I found myself all turned around
But my heart is calm, my spirits sing
So I leave no trail, no route to be found
So continued to walk alone with nothing

But my heart is calm, my spirits sing
So enthralled by this newfound place
So continued to walk alone with nothing
So afraid my eyes would end this space

So enthralled by this newfound place
Of soft black pines, old oaks in rain
So afraid my eyes would end this space
That I found myself at the beginning again.

Ocean Blues

Does it fill you with sorrow
When you stay up thinking
The fact that I may die tomorrow
Will it ever sink in?

When you stay up thinking
I’ll never see the Sun rise
Will it ever sink in
That I may never see my mother’s eyes?

I’ll never see the Sun rise
Do you feel the tears, the respite
That I may never see my mother’s eyes?
It doesn’t hurt me, I’m happy despite.

Do you feel the tears, the respite
Does it fill you with sorrow?
It doesn’t hurt me, I’m happy despite
The fact that I may die tomorrow

Kiss Me Sweetly, Kill Me Softly

Good things come through
If you lay open your chest
And let God’s plan take hold of you;
He’ll take care of the rest.

If you lay open your chest
A stranger may fly into your heart
He’ll take care of the rest
Of you as he tears you apart

A stranger may fly into your heart
Take notice, as he won’t see any
Of you as he tears you apart –
Through him you’ll dig a grave, and be buried.

Take notice, as he won’t see any
Good things come through.
Through Him you’ll dig a grave and be buried
And let God’s plan take hold of you.
