Just open your eyes
And see that life is beautiful.
Will you swear on your life,
That no one will cry at my funeral?
Hope against the HopelessA shuddering breath exhaled for the final timeHope against the Hopeless by i-wish-it-would-end
Fluttering eyes too tired to sleep
Your carriage clock starts to chime
With the shock too real even to weep
Smoke floats away into the dusk.
Beauty passes by like a whisper
One so young flying so soon
Hands starting to bleed and blister
Ignored to stare at the lonely moon
And bottles smash cold against the night.
Confused echoes turning silence dead
Escape now fleeing to leave alone
Battered marks again running red
Relief flows in a heady moan
Again falling freely into the reaching dark.
Comfort comes as always eventually
Rife with disappointment once again
But hands caress scars nigh on sensually
It shouldn't be so hard to abstain
Lets run hand in hand into the dawn.
