When you asked me about myself I was amazed
For I could not tell from where it came
And I remember thinking when you told me of the pressures of life and the court of owls
Your passion destroys their attempted shame
My thoughts flood my dreamscape and I long to see
What will ease your mind and set you free.
This bitter doubt in my mind
This ghost of hope, I fear is a refrain
A crescendo of my guilt comes crashing down again
And then I escape with you, and happiness floods me once more
Even though the winds of change may bruise and burden you
And our fear of life naturally grows ever faster
It's not the way we reacted then, but the way we act now
That determines our lives here and now, ever after.
I see all those empty words, and I love yous
The empty promises and storied regrets
I too wish to believe the lie of happy endings
But for everything I give, may I still be deserving.
