A THOUSAND TEARS

Reviews & Sticky Notes…

“…A very powerful song that sends a sad but needed message. Listening to this song will evoke many feelings and has the power to create unison, inspiration and change…” (MLP)


Lyrics…

It is I that must now decide,
what plan unfolds below
No-one and nothing can help me,
There’s naught to know

As the first rays of light
penetrate the night within my skull
Memories of you though fractured
are so hard to let go

And so I write this song for you a second time
As I pass through the garden dead roses remind me of you
In this war each bully sleeps uneasily as shallow graves appear
Awaiting my instruction the guardians shed a thousand tears

This morning I had a dream of a dark angel rising
No not a bad one but she could have been
Frozen I just stared as she told me a story
My blackness dissolved in her open heart

We’ve all been loved she said,
scared and abused,
cried ourselves to sleep
We’ve all been bashed up and broken
We’ve all been children kept in the dark,
runaways looking for some haven

So what are you going to do now the veil’s torn down,
are you going to roll over bury what you’ve seen
Or is your name avenger, will you walk with me,
burning all before you who’ve abused children

This morning in my dream was a dark angel rising,
though not the bad one I sure could have been
Frozen I just stared as you told me your story
my darkness awoken by your broken heart

The sky then opened and clearly before me in a vision
I saw all the young ones in their misery
I knew what I had to do,
dressed myself in black and
waited in the bedroom knowing he’d be back

With just one look he ran straight to hell
slammed the backdoor on his way down and out
So now I’m going to take you far away from here
We’ll leave a note for mum saying
we put the garbage out

As the first rays of light
penetrate the night within my skull
Memories of you though fractured
are so hard to let go

And so I write this song for you a second time
As I pass through the garden dead roses remind me of you
In this war each bully sleeps uneasily as shallow graves appear
Awaiting my instruction the guardians shed a thousand tears
