The haunting

It lifts you, gives you wings. While the words speak of loss, the melody gathers you in its comforting folds. If you were wise you wouldn't have wondered if there could ever be joy in the midst of sorrow. You would have let go.
If there was nothing that I could say
Turned your back and you just walked away
Leaves me numb inside I think of you
Together is all I knew

We moved too fast but I had no sign
I would try to turn the hands of time
Then look to you for the reason why
The love we had passed me by

And as the sun would set you would rise
Fall from the sky into paradise
Is there no light in your heart for me?
You've closed your eyes, you no longer see

There were no lies between me and you
You said nothing of what you knew
But there was still something in your eyes
Left me helpless and paralyzed

You could give a million reasons change the world and change the times
Could not give me the secrets of your heart and of your mind
In the darkness that surrounds me now there is no peace of mind
Your careless words undo me leave the thought of us behind

You could give a million reasons change the world and change the times
Could not give me the secrets of your heart and of your mind
In the darkness that surrounds me now there is no peace of mind
Your careless words undo me leave the thought of us behind

A stray lancet of the prodigal sun leaves a splinter lodged in your mind. But you had! Hadn't you?

Feeling: mystified
Listening to: Chicane - No ordinary morning
