Feast of Saint Valentine…….

 

Cast away, longing for a place to stay 
I wander in this desert of dismay 
Surrounded by Shadows that refuse to die 
Smiling as they tell their lies 

I watch the days pass me by 
Withering in the flow of time 
How come Fate never pays for its crimes? 

On my knees, I bow and pray 
For her tears to wash the pain away 
Watching the Shadows come in bind 
As I do nothing but sleep under a bruised sky 

I count the days that passed me by 
Buried beneath the sands of time 
How come Fate never pays for its crimes? 

Down on this earth, shifting like clay 
I refuse to let go of the comfort of yesterday 
Hand in hand, the Shadows fly 
as I do nothing but fear to try 

Lost in the day when my soul has died 
Loathing the concept of time 
How come Fate never pays for its crimes? 

Up the staircase to heaven I stand today 
I ask you to lend me your broken wings, and show me the way 
I’ll run to my Sun, and there I will die 
As the Shadows do nothing but live their lies 

No longer will I care for the days that passed me by 
I have failed the test of time 
With the robe so tight, I’ll make Fate pay for its crime
