two hands

 

 

dust to dust

i lie myself down

and here i am

i’ve lost you,  and you’ve  lost  me.

the love shared is now alone and faded

sitting somewhere between loneliness and freedom.

stuck in between of what is and what was

and all that what was is only what we were –

two hands,  one lives  in one and the desire in the other

oh,  here i am

maybe it is all my fault

yet, in someway the judges may have seen it as me to be giving up.

oh, no!

though the living in anger and frustrating bitterness is no way to live

oh, no!

walking  down the road with each step and  a heavy heart

each step a  heartbeat  that a reminder for the way it was

a place where a past  lives in a present

but it’s too late now

it’s too late now….

oh,  but don’t you dare think that this isn’t killing me inside

the nights i lay awake  and think of a way to fix it all

but i just lie awake thinking of the way you made smile and laugh

and it kills me every night through the tears on an empty pillow

regrets and second thoughts haunts

dust to dust

i lie myself down

and here i am

stuck in between of what is and what was

and all that what was is only what you were

and here i am ending what was

and seeking a future with a seasoned haunting of us in a past

dust to dust

i lie myself down

and here i am

stuck in between of what is and what was

dust to dust

i lie myself down

and here i am

i’m losing you, and you’re  losing me

and the love that was alive,  now alone and faded

dust to dust

i lie myself down
