#1
heres a song ive been working on for a while.


[Intro]- Slow
When the wind whispers in your ear
Of tales you do not wish to hear
How do you command the mighty land
To bring your happiness near

Alone in your sorrow
You count til tomorrow
While the dark tides on all sides
Bring out your deepest fears

Watching and waiting
The world takes your hating
In solitude you wait for the time
When down the cheek rolls the tear


[Verse] - Fast
The disheartened soldier carries no arms
For he was whisked away from the safety of farms
To war he rode and the flags they all flowed
But he could not brace himself from the harm

Help was needed and sought about a lover
Called was the helpful aid of another
But the right angel's voice did in fact stutter
When he told me that there was no other


[Chorus] - Slow
And down this shadowed path I walk
Where crimes are plotted and demons talk
And I am hunted like the fox
What on earth did I do?

Surrounding me are lines of chalk
My life's deeds have all been mocked
And it came as such a unprepared shock
How do I try to stay true?


[Verse] - Fast
I watched as the world just tossed me aside
For remembering the past and times you have cried
But in the end it was me who had sighed
And decided that the only truth was in fact all the lies

Tired of walking out of my own skin
Wondering where in the world you have been
My eyes turned dark and my heart grew dim
When I thought I had lost my own soul to him


[Chorus]- Slow
And down this shadowed path I walk
Where crimes are plotted and demons talk
And I am hunted like the fox
What on earth did I do?

Surrounding me are lines of chalk
My life's deeds have all been mocked
And it came as such a unprepared shock
How do I try to stay true?
