Small Town, Somewhere
You've no idea
The cost of sitting here
And smiling, showing you love
Because when I do this
Give you my love unconditionally
It opens up my heart again.
That place that is bruised
Hurting beyond belief...
The place that love is stored
And goodbyes are swallowed
Like a bitter pill...but still
Swallowed..to let others move on..
You don't comprehend the cost
Of loving you because you haven't
Lost as much as I have.. or maybe you
Have lost as much...in a different way
Maybe you're me in a different guise
Could be that you've lost as much
Or an equal amount.. Perchance you've
Seen that dark abysess.. right before
Your soul says goodbye for good
And you've nothing left to wish for
When you lay everything on the line
And know that you will get nothing
Not a cent in return..not a shadow
Not a glimpse of the hope you had
Wishing upon a faint star long ago
Maybe you've been here and done that
And in that maybe...maybe we'll both
Find a salvation long lost, but looked for
Then we'll be able to hold our heads up
Instead of hidden, with tears falling
And maybe the love we speak of is real
Not a dream after all... Time will tell
Until it does, be patient. I don't know me
So how could you know me? This hurt
This pain..this push you away..
I will run yet still hope you will be here.
Save me from myself please.
I have no god to ask.
I do not believe.
Believe for us both
Or we're both lost.
