lyrics

I’ll bruise my lips to sing the truth into this microphone
Beneath the spit and blood words fly on the wings of passion
Spent all my nights nowhere, shouting at no-one
All in the hopes that I could make the world listen

Not so innocent of rapture and this endless wonder
My gypsy soul caged, chained, and hopelessly captured
Close my eyes and project my voice beyond this prison
And maybe you’ll come across the words I gave it all to sing…

These songs are all that I will leave behind
In due time we all fade away
These songs are all that I will leave behind
In due time we all fade away

Through poetry I found my path to immortality
My life is fleeting, beautiful, and measured by expression
Written as a eulogy that I am destined to deliver
Each sentence a winding path on my road to resolution…

These songs are all that I will leave behind
In due time we all fade away
These songs are all that I will leave behind
In due time we all fade away

In these lyrics, I will live on
A ghost, of days gone by
Another ink stain on the paper
A shimmer of me is left behind
