I think I saw your true face today
I can see why others tell me to stay away
Your sadness rings out like a church bell
You did say there was too much to tell
But the words you said today were a surprise to me
I always wondered how tortured were a surprise to me
To feel the constant darkness around you
No sign of light for years
To have memories filled with tears
Maybe that's why I can't stay away
Darkness is not ignorance
It's not bitterness
It is not the entity that hides monsters and ghouls
Anyone who believes that are just fools
Darkness is a beauty of its own
Darkness is the unknown and the untouched
This I know as much
You can carve new worlds in the pitch black
Such dreams are made on this
This is why as I sleep I never want to come back
To the bright lighted reality
To the everyday fake honesty
"How are you?"
"Nice to meet you."
How many say this, how much actually sings true?
Everyday looking into green dishonest eyes
Witnessing rivers of tears that continue to rise
I almost can't stand the edge of life
Why live in this world full of vengeance and strife
Where people can be torn from loved ones
And forced to sleep lonely nights
I can't stay away because I can see you've been through much
Hurtful memories that swim around you in a rush.
One after the other
It almost makes you wonder: "why bother?"
They're in the past like drifting ghosts
Good times, loving times
But we always seem to remember the worst times the most
The times we rather forget
The ones we usually regret
I think I saw part of your true face today
And it made me not want to shy away….
