In my world

Farewell heart of gold Maybe we’re lost without a cost Of stories that we’ve told In my world everybody stays Nobody wishes for words they couldn’t say Bless my soul Let the night unfurl Dancin’ spinnin’ dreamin’ Singing in my world Fare Farewell liberty Maybe we’re lost without the cost Of who we used to…

Meditation

You can’t reach me

You say that we’re apart And you can’t reach me Yeah you can’t reach me You got a broken heart Don’t let them see it Don’t let them see it You built a wall bigger than your dreams Feeling so small, covered in your fears Baby, open the door Let me come closer I’ll dry…

Time passes by
