Smiling Searching Thinking Knowing

 

Let her go Passenger

 

 

Smiling Searching Thinking Knowing

 

 

 

 

 

Smiling in the sunshine

Searching for a reason

Looking for a clue

Thinking about times past

Remembering those words

I’m thinking about you

 

 

Thinking if I were yours

What would you do?

It’s all too deep for you

Knowing you want easy

You want light

You want shiny and new

 

 

Thinking you wouldn’t be there

As I need you to be

I’ve seen the preview

Knowing you want acceptance

You want definition

Knowing you can’t take blue

 

 

Thinking of your shadows

Of your corners too

I have too clear a view

There’s nowhere to slide

Nowhere to blend

I see right on through

 

 

I don’t wear blinders

I don’t do masks

I won’t ignore what’s true

Knowing you can’t duck

You can’t hide

I’m looking straight at you

 

 

Thinking in the sunshine

Smiling in the warm

Taking in the view

Knowing it’s too late

Thinking of the things I’ll miss

Knowing I’ll miss you

“Have you ever been in love?  Horrible isn’t it?  It makes you so vulnerable. 

It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. 

You build up all these defences, you build up a whole suit of armour, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life….

You give them a piece of you.  They didn’t ask for it.  They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. 

Love takes hostages.  It gets inside you.  It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.  It hurts. 

Not just in the imagination.  Not just in the mind.  It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.  I hate love.”

– Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

I Saw an Angel

 

George Eliot Quote for wordpress 2

 

 

I Saw an Angel

 

 

 

 

I saw an Angel

As he flew on by

 

I saw an Angel

And I wanted to cry

 

Tears of joy and wonder

Rolled down my face

 

How privileged am I

In this time, in this place

 

 

 

I saw an Angel

He brought me hope

 

Soft wings enfolded me

Suddenly I could cope

 

On shaking legs I stood

Strength began to return

 

Though the earth was still moving

Under my feet the ground was firm

 

 

 

I saw an Angel

Holding out his hand

 

Speaking words of comfort

He seemed more than a man

 

I was filled with awe

Humbled by such love

 

To be so small

But still noticed by that one up above

 

 

 

I saw an Angel

He had a message to convey

 

Quiet words of warmth

Touching my heart more than I can say

 

To feel so lost

But then to be found

 

To have gentle hands patch my wounds

And stand me on solid ground

 

 

 

I saw an Angel

Faithful and true

 

I saw an Angel

As away he flew

 

I didn’t realise

When he stood by my side

 

I didn’t see

As he caught the tears I cried

 

 

 

I saw an Angel

But I didn’t know

 

He didn’t arrive blowing trumpets

His wings he didn’t show

 

But looking back

Eyes open like never before

 

I see it was an Angel that day

It was Angel knocking on my door

 

 

 

I saw an Angel

And now I realise

 

It’s my turn to be somebodies Angel

My turn to wipe tears from glistening eyes

 

It’s my turn to help a broken heart

My turn to help somebody stand

 

I can be their Angel

I can hold out my hand

Last Chorus Last Song

 

Tears and Memory

 

 

Last Chorus Last Song

 

 

 

I don’t know what I feel

I don’t know why I cry

I don’t know what these tears are for

When we already said goodbye

 

 

 

I don’t know what to think

I don’t know what to say

I didn’t see it coming

When we already went our own way

 

 

 

Is it the end of an era

Is it the beginning of the past

Is it the questions left unanswered

That make me feel this at last

 

 

 

Is it the memories that linger

Is it the feeling still there

Is it the smile in my heart

That finally lays it all bare

 

 

 

The heart is a funny thing

The heart fools and lies

The heart finds a way back

Even after all the goodbyes

 

 

 

The heart may still be weeping

The heart may still miss that face

The heart might still be wounded

Even when you’re in a truly happy place

 

 

 

So this is the final goodbye

So this is the final so long

So these are the last notes

The last chorus of the last song

 

 

 

A smile lingers as fall those last tears

A last chord plays and fades softly away

And a wish, a hope, goes out to the universe

It’s a brand new song, a brand new day
