I was lost in a moment,
Caught by a dream.
Soothing my heart of things I can't redeem.
I vowed a thousand times a day,
To remove you from my thoughts.
But I won't ever have my way,
With everything I've been taught.
Then I catch a glimpse of you,
And my whole world ends.
You could feel the same, and I wouldn't have a clue.
What happens next is just around the river bend.
I can't stay here and be denied your touch,
Being alone in paradise is just too much.
So I'll abandon this place,
Until a new day brings me back to life,
Like a musical laugh in a solemn world.
Tying up my loose laces,
Leaving behind my strife.
Into fists my hands are curled,
Struggling not to scream and shout.
Thank you for caring when the rest of the world shut me out.
