Love, Of All Things, Lives On.

May 15, 2009
They Surround, Leaving me Bound.
Those to Take, Those That Break.
Need the Touch, But Not Too Much.
Find my Needing, Stop this Bleeding.
Self Infliction, This Addiction.
Breaking Through, Finding What’s True.
Shifting Through Lies, Saying my Goodbyes.
No Longer Strong, Been Too Long.
Confusion Overwhelms, Telling these Tales.
Taken Enough, Not That Tough.
Here I Stand, Without Your Hand.
Suffer the Weakness, Find the Sickness.
Cut a Little Deeper, Life a Little Steeper.
Scars to Hide, Wash in the Tide.
Lies you’ve Told, Him to Hold.
But he’s Gone, Life Tomorrow’s Dawn.
Falling Faster, No Needed Pastor.
This my Excuse, Hide my Abuse.
Mine Hurts Worse, Remove this Curse.
Felt in my Bones, Forget Harsh Tones.
“You Will Survive,” As if Wanted Alive.
You Don’t Feel, The Thoughts that Steal.
Life From Existence, Left in Past Tenses.
Burn in Smoke, The Last Toke.

Before I leave, Please Believe.
You were Loved, Although Shoved.
Make it for Me, Let Yourself Be.
For Once, Open, Faith Will Not be Stolen.
Listen, You are Strong, You Do Belong.
Carry on for Me, White Lights, You’ll See.
Left in Remembrance, Follow Your Dance.
Find that Passion, Let Love Happen.
Through it All, Forget my Fall.
Remember my Love, Now Waiting Above.

In Line 16, it's supposed to be, "Like Tomorrow's Dawn." typos always suck. :)
