"I am Happy to The Point of Fear" -Ralph Waldo Emmerson

I smile as these tears fall down...
I am flying as they hit the ground,
I close my eyes to see what's true,
I hate the world, just to love someone like you.
I clench my fists to open my heart,
We stick together, just to fall apart.
I walk this road that leads to nowhere,
In hopes that someday i will get there.
Nowhere is a wonderful place,
As long as I never see his face.
Somewhere is where i want to be,
As long as you are somewhere with me.
I close my mouth to taste the sting...
My hands are bare... but i wear that ring...
I work to stay so that someday i will leave..
And someday is coming fast, I do believe,
but that someday could lead us to somewhere...
meanwhile i pray that it wont lead to nowhere...
Nobody told me someday I would love you...
But somebody told me that love is never true...
So I forgot the words in order to remember,
that day that i died in late December.
i died to myself just to live with you.
I cried all alone so i could laugh, it's true,
I gave up my riches for a treasure so bold,
That will remain young even when I am old.
I smile as these tears escalate,
I close my eyes, just to feel safe.
Safe from nowhere's potent power...
safe from the world that attempts to devour...
my ability to say what it true,
My heart aches, knowing that this will be through.
The days were as numbered as the hairs on my head,
now I can count them, and feel all the dread...
i don't want go nowhere after this place,
but I don't want to go somewhere I can't see your face...
I wish i could find the right words to say what is true...
Truth is, I would go anywhere, if i could stay with you.
