Come in, come in...
Why go back home, why turn around?
The forest calls.. Can’t you hear the sound?
Come in, come in...
There is nothing to lose, and everything to win;
for this, this is not like anywhere you've ever been.
Here the trees twist, the branches twine
the twigs crack, the leaves rustle.
You won't get far, not moving a muscle.
Don't be afraid...
You could always stay
just till darkness falls?
Move.. come on, the forest calls!
Go on, and don't look back
Just follow the track, step by step.
No need to bring water, no need to bring bread

Black smoke spirals high into the sky,
Like demonic fingers reaching to grab the clouds.
Ash descends like fiery rain
Onto the sidewalks of New York City.
An explosion is heard,
And Tower number two is hit.
The planes had driven their wings into the Twin Towers,
And the terrorists drove their stakes into the hearts of Americans.
People stood and watched,
As their loved ones became trapped,
And it seemed like there was no hope
An earth-shattering noise,
And Tower Two collapsed.
Dust and debris swirled in a suffocating tornado;
Endangering those who were around.
People cried and ran,
For they knew people in the Tower.
Another horrifying noise,
And Tower One came down too.
Now there was nothing left but rubble,
And the time it took to clear it away.
Now I stand on the edge of Ground Zero
Just ten short years later.
The chilling ghosts of the bravest voices in history
Echo softly around the site.
The pain we've endured over the course of these years
Is permanently etched into
Too LateSometimes i feel like Ive lost you,Too Late7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
sometimes like we've never met,
at times i find myself remembering,
the things i know i should forget,
sometimes i sit back and wonder,
why I'm still around,
but i know theres gotta be something,
thats lost but will be found,
A confused heart,
cant love for sure,
a confused love,
is something that we endure,
a confused girl,
who's stuck in a state of hate,
cant love a confused boy,
who's apology came too late

Your memory carried me through countless nights
Nothing more than a glorified incubus
Your serpent words wrapping there way around my heart
We both need to move on, fellow lost soul,
The coming dawn waits for no one.
I'm only your princess when no one else is looking
A pet trained to come when your lonely.
I can't wait forever for you to make up your mind
The fading night leaves everyone behind.
I would have been your everything if I only had a chance
But we are young and your heart wanders while I look on
My wounds heal, your poison drains away leaving a clear mind
With my face to the rising sun, I am born.
It is your turn to wake up Lord of dreams and wishes
My hands once reached out to you, craving the feel of your skin
Bitter reality waits to greet you as I walk away with few glances back
The moon sets and a young girl dies.
Hours spent missing what never was is a heavy burden
My shoulders feel free once again and I pray you find the same peace
The fissures and cracks in a young he
Have You EverHave you ever just looked up into this night sky,Have You Ever3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
It's so bright and beautiful,
Shinning just so we will be able to see,
See how this one simple thing,
Can change your whole life,
Have you ever just stepped into the suns light,
To feel the warmth it's offering you ,
It's shine just asking you,
To come and play outside,
If even for a little while,
Have you ever just danced in your kitchen,
Because you wanted to act silly,
While no ones around to watch,
You act truly amazing,
Have you ever just cried into the night,
To let all those worries pour out,
Onto that pillow you hold so tightly,
Only wanting the pain to go away,
Have you ever just laid in your yard,
To see those stars once more,
Because their there to listen,
To whatever you have to say,

and fix him right up with her best band-aids
and tell him that
he has got the most loveliest eyes she has
ever ever seen.
she wants to make him feel warm like the summer sun,
and make his face vibrant like the autumn leaves ...
but it's always winter 'round these parts,
it's always winter.

I'm sorry it's come to this.

The way she smiles could shatter the coldest of hearts with it's way of eating through your hearts shell to the blackened core. Her smile was a twist of sorts with that half frown-half smile that couldn't seem to figure out what it wanted to be, happy or sad. No one seemed to notice the battle of emotions raging in her head, her smile the only proof of a bloody aftermath.
Her laugh could bring anyone to do her bidding and make their own heart beat again. Her laugh spread like a wildfire and just kept going, even when it's arsonist turned herself in to the police and pledged guilty. Her gray eyes would cloud over as if a churning storm swirled over an empty abyss. The way her eyes shine as if all she sees is the beauty in people and all the magic in the world. They could outshine the sun if she ever wanted them to.
She still smiles like nothing never happened, as if her heart didn't fall into a thousand pieces just because in her ever after, her

Dream for what you have always wanted
Dream it out loud and be proud
Dream without limits, no one can stop you
I dare you to speak
Speak all that is on your mind, don't hold it in
Speak wisdom and tell the truth at all times
Speak for those who have been silenced unfairly
I dare you to smile
Smile for those who are in deepest despair
Smile to prove those who hurt others wrong
Smile to bring back peace and happiness in this world
I dare you to love
Love your friends, neighbors, and enemies just as yourself
Love those that have forgotten or given up on love entirely
Love and don't ever stop loving, it's what heals our souls
I dare you to hope
Hope for a better future
Hope for those who have given up
Hope throughout life, even when all hope seems lost
I dare you to be different
Be different and stand out from the crowd for the better
Be different and show what makes you be the true you
Be different and bring the change you want

the way we keep
to a sleepless night
with the tap of a train
under our feet.
the way we end
with the close of day,
the oranges and reds lingering
while the sleep
tickles our eyelids.
the way we hold each other
in our hands, knuckles tingling
and skin pounding
with each new touch and breath.
the kind of thing that lives
with everything in the way we speak, the careful whispers
in the crooks of our shoulders,
quick in patters of rain, but crawling in droplets,
a haunting reminder of what we are-
