Our Song MAG

For years my life has sung to one tune
Unscratched, the melody beautiful, pure
Set on repeat the disc went on and on
’Til the needle slipped and the music died
Scratched to the core, cut at the heart
Skipping ’til only screams were heard
And when the disc stopped only silence
The drooled refrain which I can’t escape

For this record played our life
Its internal verse that kept us believing
To the deep beat that never let us fall
All faded to a crack and eject
And where time heals the broken
Days just shattered the disc
Pieces of us scattered upon the future
Never again to be heard
