Help me unravel these songs unsung
dreams without sleep
my heart still aches
I have left so many people in my past
those who I loved and adored
who hurt too much.
thinking time was endless
and there would be enough to reconnect.
the smiles that endure
in my heart
the memories made
are all thats left.
When a soul is swept away
the oblivion that stands so long
it aches to be challangend .
words never spoken
words never heard
maybe they could have saved
a life gone too soon.
The darkness that dwelled so long in those days
like the never ending winter
where we were just recovering
from one accident
drinking ourselves into another.
The group that set us apart
let us stand together
like a never ending party
I grew up and moved out too soon.
One hit is all it takes till death curls up in bed
sucking your last breath
leaving your children lost.
leaving all those that shared this life
without a friend.
I steped away to save myself
to save my children.
I am reminded with each passing obituary
how much we all meant to each other.
now matter how much time passes
the wounds never healed
I wonder, if I had stepped up sooner
would that have changed anything?
The light of potential had shown in our eyes
we hid with careless disguise
now our children are our benifactors.
Life choice that never cease to unravel
our latest mistake
