“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land
among the stars.”- Brian Thomas Littrell and Les Brown.


Waking up to the soundless breeze
Smelling the scent of loveless roses
After my tranquil, slumberous sleep
All I thought that I really know is
Vanished from insanity
Banished from humanity
Instantly

You brought me a scarlet letter
You said we'd always be together
Forever and evermore
I received a scarlet letter
Edged with deceitful pleasure
Written by a heart dissevered
Forever and evermore

My hands are beginning to shake
From the distress in my perplexed mind
I'm broken like an earthquake
The clock's running out of precious time
Could this be the prophecy?
Fate or our decisive destiny?
Breaking instantly

You brought me a scarlet letter
You said we'd always be together
Forever and evermore
I received a scarlet letter
Edged with deceitful pleasure
Written by a heart dissevered
Forever and evermore

Holding your scarlet letter
As my fingertips touch your signature
Engraved in crimson blood
Then I gaze up
Toward the passing eclipse on the sun
Seventeen words cannot be undone
My heartbeat is ripped and torn
Love's fabric has been too worn

You brought me a scarlet letter
I know I should've known better
Than to think we would be together
Forever and evermore
I received a scarlet letter
Read and eagerly endeavored
Enveloped by a soul who surrendered
Forever and evermore

You brought me a scarlet letter
You said we'd always be together
Forever and evermore
I received a scarlet letter
Edged with deceitful pleasure
Written by a heart dissevered
Forever and evermore
