Before Long

I originally wrote this with the purpose of putting music to it but just...haven't yet. Possibly in the near future!

i watch the sun go down 

no one else is around 

it's only me but i'm not here 

i can't remember when things started seeming queer 

 

i try to think but i can't hold on 

the thoughts flutter away like little birds singing songs

i can't think of the rights or think of the wrongs 

and the day is night, i find, before long 

 

i watch the leaves fall down 

no one else is around 

it's just me but i'm not here 

i've got no love, no hate, no fear 

 

i try to think but i can't hold on 

the thoughts flutter away like little birds singing songs 

i can't think of the rights or think of the wrongs 

and the spring is fall, i find, before long 

 

i watch the burning crown 

no one else is around 

it's only me but i'm not here 

the fire's hot, it longs to sear 

 

i try to think but i can't hold on! 

the thoughts flutter away like little birds singing songs! 

i can't think of the rights and i swear i can't think of the wrongs! 

and the cities are burned, i find, before long! 

 

i will not think and i won't hold on 

i'll just flutter away like a little bird singing songs 

who cares about the rights, who cares of the wrongs? 

light turns to dark, i find, before long. 

The End
