You're as cold as ice
You're willing to sacrifice our love
You want paradise
But someday you'll pay the price
I've seen it before
It happens all the time
You're closing the door
You leave the world behind
You're digging for gold
You're throwing away
A fortune in feelings
But someday you'll pay
I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I'm older
Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
And through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder
"Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul." - Edward Abbey
"In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled." Daniel 10:2-3
You say you’ve seen it on my face,
You have seen it all before
But The man you are looking for
Stands outside the door
You never stepped foot
Into this life because you couldn’t see
The face you were looking at
It was you, it wasn’t me.
So take your fears and walk away
Hope you find what you are looking for
Because you will never find yourself
Staring at the door.
I used to be lunatic from the gracious days.
I used to be woebegone and so restless nights.
My aching heart would bleed for you to see.
Oh but now I don't find myself bouncing home,
Whistling button hole tunes to make me cry,
