AN - This is all a bit strange - I'd love to hear what you think of it.
With those eyes you could stare a whole nation
Unaware of the true situation
Into piles of dust at your feet
Into piles of rags on the streets.
With that smile you could turn a whole country
Leave a hundred and thousand mouths hungry
To ashes and dirt and nothing but words
Nothing but arms and nothing but charms
To fool every eye
To trick every mind
To break every soul.
With those hands you could shelter the sun
Make every knot in the sky come undone
But you won't even try, you won't even start
Your lips never part
You wouldn't step forward
To shelter the sun
Or to smile or to speak
Or to open our minds
Or your own.
On your own you could save the whole world
You could save the whole world on your own
You could trick us and change us and shock and amaze us
If you'd smile
If you'd look
If you'd speak
If you'd try
Or you could let us all die.
Or you could let us all live
Or you could give us back life
Maybe we're already dead.
Maybe you killed us.
Maybe you left us.
Maybe we can't ever die.
Please review, pretty please? 3
