Sweet Melodies

Sweet melodies
Are what I can see
When I look at your face in the sun

And all around us
They can’t confine us
‘Cause we are the ones who know how to run

They sing about us, still sing about us
We watch the moon turn to dust, watch moon turn to dust

Our fathers keep saying
While we keep on playing
That someday the light will turn to dark

The neighbors conversing
Their worlds are reversing
But time doesn’t stop when your done

Our friends keep delaying
Our mothers keep praying
That someday we’ll give up and come home

They sing about us, still sing about us
We watch the moon turn to dust, watch moon turn to dust

And we’re stuck in the middle
We can’t solve the riddle
But we don’t want to end this game now

We’re tired of losing
But we do know this one thing
That we just can’t put our pieces back on start

And we’ve ridden roller coasters
Battled jealous monsters
But we’ve never had to fight for another

Someone like you and I
Someone like you and I
Someone like you and I
Like you and I

But we’ve ridden roller coasters,
Roller coasters

They sing about us, still sing about us
We watch the moon turn to dust, watch moon turn to dust

It turns to dust
Watch it crumble and rust
Right in front of us
Right in front of us, of us

Sweet melodies
Are what I can see
When I look at your face in the sun

I read this like you're chanting something. With the repeating words and echoes and stuff. The way you write is very unique. You're a very talented writer! You should have more comments on your stuff! Will check out some of my poems and honestly tell me what you think? The two of us write very different, but at the same time we have some similarities! I would really love to hear your opinion on some of my things! :) Keep writing!
