Until Our Souls Meet Above

She’s so perfect, why can’t they see
I’d give anything to see her with me
Wondering what could have been, snap back to reality
Complete strangers, we stare
Reading each other’s souls, longing for more

In this cold cruel world, I’m alone
Misunderstood, that’s what they say
This day hasn’t been the same, I can no longer play this game
Pretending it’s okay, knowing it’s not
Unfamiliar face, he’s looking deep in thought
About what?

Her eyes are filled with sorrow
I want to show her a better tomorrow
Take her with me, wherever I may go
Sheltered in every way, her innocence is overwhelming
Could she ever trust me?

Always screwed over
You’d think I’d learn my lesson, but you’re oh so wrong
Good intensions catapulted right back
Learned the hard way, everyone hurts you in the end
No exceptions

She’d be my goddess
Despite her beliefs, I’d be so tender
If I could only have one chance
She gives me a quick glance
Knowing I crossed her mind even for a moment
Gives me the strength to make it through the day
May I be so lucky tomorrow?

He’s oh so suspicious
His mask is unbreakable
How do I know he isn’t thinking the unthinkable?


Could she ever trust me
Would she give me the time of day
I can no longer bear live this way
My fantasies long to become reality
Before I face my fatality

Tempted to approach him
But would he give me the time of day
Would he treat me right, or throw me away
Would I be left alone to watch my spirit decay
Is it worth taking the chance?


Why do I bother
My future is bleak, I’m oh so weak
She deserves better
I will be forced to hide my love
Until our souls meet above

Why do I bother
My lust is cheapened by my past
We’d never last
I will have to hide my love
Until our souls meet above.
