Song: Across the Sea

I don’t care for that little piece of my life,

The one you took away from me;

It was a phase, a moment left in time

And one I was so scared to leave.

 

But now it’s gone I don’t think of it much,

The tides of time have run away with me,

The love is gone, the feelings were all lost,

When I returned across the sea (and I found out I could be free)

 

Chorus

Ohhh did you think I would wait?

Did you think the love was that great?

But then we parted, and whatever was there has gone,

It’s never something I would dwell upon.

 

Kisses on postcards can only go so far

Before I begin to undo

And all those men waiting at the bar

They all make me think of you

 

What’s done is done; the sands have passed,

What’s lost is lost, we can’t make it last

And all the while you thought I would wait,

Expecting that you and I were a product of fate.

 

Chorus

 

So, what if our time has run?

And all those memories are made.

I grow old, I grow fatter, I become

Just a silhouette to fade.

 

But I couldn’t wait, not for anyone

My life was mine and my battles to be won

I had my reasons; my goals are my own

The world was mine, still yet to roam.

The Trial

 

‘In pain!’ the master lawyer shouts, ‘In pain you must not jest,

To leave me with the all before and longing of the best!’

He stamps his plump feet along, upon the wooden floor,

And reels off a list of nine; the sins I have adored.

‘You pushed a knife right through her chest, you hurt her, dead I say!

You bundled body, you bundled more; you threw her life away!’

And with this, the look of disgust flies across his face

And passes on the jury gone, in their only place.

‘Do you know what you have done?’ he asks with all implore,

‘Befouling and committing murder.’

What careful guilt I bore,

As gavel rests in judge’s hand and jury look in spite

Upon my figure, cowering hence who knew not wrong from right.

‘I know’ I say, in all endure, my voice distinctly low.

I know what I have done,’ I say, ‘I know where I must go.’

With these uneasy words, a thousand eyes then fall

Upon my guilty figure there, cowering by the wall.

The lawyer, then he turns around to see his wistful crowd,

So eager for me put to hell; only then will they be proud.

For I have done what others only dream they can achieve.

Imagine up in careful nightmares of stories I believe.

And the master lawyer, then he settles there.

The jury is beneath his thumb; breathes them like they’re air.

He knows of course that he is all, he knows that he has won;

Receives a healthy sum of money for all that I have done.

And the jury wait with baited breaths, thinking in their minds

How I am not a human more, no member of their kind.

And as for that, their only notion, I’m afraid I must agree

As cameras flash all over me, adhering to my plea.

Because I lost myself one aching night, when hatred ruptured me;

Consigned myself within my mind to not again be free.

Not live without my actions tarnished, not sleep through all the night,

Forever carry consequence of my ill-intended smite.

The master lawyer smiles then as I am put away;

Left for only darkness gone; rot, rot and decay.

His fat cheeks adhere the evil, spread it through my veins,

Boil my blood in harsh regret as I am locked in chains.

Song: What wonder

First two verses and bridge (written more, but on paper!)

 

What wonder you clasp to,

My delicate soul?

Your hands are chapped and cold.

 

I worry about you,

Your pale from shaking

And flinching when you are told.

 

Such feelings inside,

So poisonous be

To curl you up so fierce

Such anxiety grips you, your outraged plea

Before your voice can pierce.

Song: Ghost of all my lovers past

A bit morbid, but one of the first songs I wrote guitar music to! Recording hopefully coming soon.

 

 

Ghost of all my lover’s past,

Come greet me now, come greet me last

Show me the mistakes I made

Before my memories start to fade.

 

I promise I will be behaved

My forgotten feelings can’t be saved

So, come greet me like we’re old friends

And I will try to make amends.

 

Chorus

You— broke me down

I— didn’t make a sound

I forgive them all,

The love was cold

I forgive them all

Our stories are all told

 

Follow me into my head

To see the memories of my dead

People who I have no more

People who I once adored

 

Turn the pages of my books

They tell it all, just take a look

People who I try to forget,

Filled up with stagnant regret.

 

Chorus

You— broke me down

I— didn’t make a sound

I forgive them all,

The love was cold

I forgive them all

Our stories are all told

 

Come my spectre, take me heart

Smashed to pieces; make it start

Once again, just heal the wounds

Hauled up in my catacombs.

 

I will live on, I will not die

I will not run away and lie

We are over it’s all done,

There was no game, it can’t be won (It’s clear that you were not my one)

 

Chorus

You— broke me down

I— didn’t make a sound

I forgive them all,

The love was cold

I forgive them all

Our stories are all told
