The music that surrounds these lyrics
They don't understand
But I can hear it
I can hear it
The hidden message
That you can only find
From reading in-between the lines
These broken lines
That fell apart
When you left her
When you took her heart
When you took her heart
How could you leave
With the door wide open?
You never believed
She'd have loved you longer
She wrote you letters
In her familiar slant
She kept them all
She could never send them
And she still can't
And where were you
On the days she cried
She had always known
That you had lied
She never believed
And you never tried
You made a choice
And she chose a side
She went left
And you stayed right
You were the dark
And she was the light
She was the light

I try my best to express myself, without it being broken
For what I feel is deep in my heart, is love that I want to be showing
Every day it develops, every day I feel more loving
Is the tenderness of passion, which I’ve never felt before
A feeling that I got from a girl who I truly adore
Beautiful as a rose and gentle as a peaceful dove
My heart gets filled with warmth, a feeling I describe as love
She’s the most beautiful girl I’ve seen, that’s as simple as I can be
So very cute and filled with joy, she’s the only girl who I want to see
Her adorable smile that always cheers me up, she’s the only one I need
She’s everything I ever wanted, I thank god that he gave her to me

It's kinder by far
To break a bird's neck than it's
Don't say: "I'd like some time apart",
Though it's easier I know,
To put the cat out than teach it to use
The litter tray

Because the messenger's shot
Regardless of the good news that precedes
Don't say: "It's over",
It's a kindness (of sorts)
To pull the wool over little lamb's
Don't say: "Stay" though (well,
Not unless you mean it),

The old me.
Who wasn't exactly a girl.
Another epitome of lonely,
And having no life outside.
Bad haircuts and risky fashion statements,
I never cared about others.
I want to be that girl,
Who was always herself.
She might not have been happy,
She was miserable,
But at least she wasn't a lie.

The Strange One
I appearance differently now
My nickname still
but now its new
they all whisper
The Strange One
I've change quite a lot
Everyone doesn't pay attention
mostly i appear randomly
like a ghost
Hiding in the crowd
through my own path
to the darkness
where I hide
in my spare time
Kinda like a vampire
almost vladmiri Tod
Always in dark clothing
being a vampire
and hiding away in the dark
Call the Goth boy
or vampire kid
I look at them
stare at them cold
Telling them to back off
I walk off
being the strange one
which people whisper
to each other
I'm not noticeable
which is good
because scaring them
and surprising them too
At the park
reading a book
someone sits down
Its vladmiri Tod
giving me a warm smile
The Strange One
I call him
The Goth boy
Emos and Goths
get along well
look out for each other
Emo and Goth
in some ways
One of my friends
still calls me

I am left alone,
Sobbing in agony,
But it seems like no one cares.
Words are whispered,
Then harshly betrayed,
I feel like a chess piece,
A pawn moving about.
It is another bullshit weekend,
Three in a row,
I keep counting,
As red X's fill my calendar.
I sleep all day,
I do not wish to move,
I try to seek comfort,
But nothing changes.
All I see,
All I desire,
All I want,
Is my angel.
I want her close,
I need her here,
So that she can fill,
the void that is my heart.
Tears will fall,
Agony will reign,
Untill my angel returns.
I sleep like the dead,
Cry like the widow,
And hope like the convict.

Giving them kisses in the dark
to numb their headache from
drinking too much and yet
not enough to kill lust.
She was always adored by boys, who,
if given the chance, would rebuild
the world for her.
But she wanted to be the heroine
and refused to see
she needed saving, too.

Because her reflection hurts more than
To the boy who wears sweatshirts
On hot summer days,
Because he doesn’t want his mother to cry over his
To the boy who weeps uncontrollably
Until he falls asleep,
Because it’s the only way to escape into his
To the girl who spends her days in her bedroom,
Because the dark is more peaceful than her
To the child who gets angry,
Because no one understands.
To the teens who self-harm,
To the ones in recovery,
To the ones that just can’t do it anymore…
For the girl who skips meals
And the boy who wears sweatshirts,
For the boy who cries,
The girl who hides,
And the ones who just can’t do it anymore.
You’ve come this far.
Don’t you dare give up on it, now.

and the night sky turns to grey
as the snow pours around my bare feet
I walk towards the light
toward the all knowing city
that bears my burden
as well as my crime
I walk towards humanity
and chase after everything that has left my home
the night wind biting my ankles
drilling my legs below the nightgown
I walk towards the cold
my anger fueling my need to walk
and the walk preventing frostbite
the icy lake glimmering as I throw stones that have done no wrong
I walk toward no future
while coming from no past
forgetting myself as my feet go numb
not knowing where the unknown will take me
I turn around and walk toward where I came from
knowing I cant leave what is unfinished
knowing what I must face upon returning
knowing I can always leave again

When you saw that flash of green light, a sinister laugh knocking in your ears and a searing pain on your forehead, did you ever think that you would start childhoods and set souls ablaze?
When you were locked in your cupboard after your awful aunt and uncle refused to give you dinner, again, did you know that you would soon have millions of children smile at the sound of your name?
When you were on the train to Hogwarts, and you met your best friend Ron, did you ever wonder that we were all on the train with you, we were all excited to go to school with you, and we were estatic to be sorted into our proper houses?
Whenever you felt like you were all alone in the world, did you know that we all stood up, applauded and cheered you on, with grins outstretching the world, tears rushing down our cheeks and glasses similar to yours on our faces?
When you were terrified and thought that you had truly met your sticky end, did you know that millions of people would dress up exactly

Voldemort needs you dead.
Bring your wand, bring your owl,
Make sure Hedwig is fed.
Get on the bike, get on a broom
The burrow is now in view,
Lost only one, only one!
The oldest of the order crew.
Give me a lighter, give me a book
But not the golden snitch.
If there three wizards in the room,
Why is there only one witch?
I do, I do and now they are bonded,
Bill and Fleur are Wed.
Talk to him, and then to her
Saw lynx and then they fled.
Go to alley, go to street,
Dig deep into her pouch,
Drink and duck, stun the men
Until at least one say "ouch"!

Though secrets kept, it mattered not

But Deer beware what Phoenix sung:

All held in silver 'till his end

Who always wore
A ponytail of wispy golden hair
(That you could count on to be
Half falling out by the end of the day),
A smile full of white teeth and pink gums
(That was so bright and wide
The whole room would light up when she walked in)
And a black jacket with
The sleeves rolled up above her elbows,
As if she couldn't stand
To have anything on her arms.
Her eyes were the most brilliant shade of color
I'd ever seen, and I often found myself
Telling the summer sky,
"You could learn a thing or two from her eyes."
I know a girl
Who always wears
Her hair down in front of her face
(And it really did look better blonde)
As if to hide from the world.
Her eyes are the most brilliant shade of color
I've ever seen, but they're dull and lifeless
And I sometimes find myself
Asking the summer sky
To stop being jealous and give her back her blue.
She doesn't smile or laugh
Hell, she doesn't even talk.
She just sits there, like stone

Once a powerful dark wizard
Entered a house from the moonless night.
He cursed a little boy's parents who died
Instantly in a flash of green light.
The sorcerer then pointed his wand
Toward the child who remained.
But all his powers were gone instead,
And shall they ever be regained.
It happened many years ago
When every heart had flamed.
All because of one wizard:
Harry, the hero, the boy who lived,
Knew none of this at all.
For his uncle's family that adopted him
Had built a preventive wall.
They lied to Harry about his parents' deaths
And forced him to be their slave.
They made the cupboard his room and said
"Look at the space we'd save!"
All this ended when the moment came
On Harry's lucky day.
Hagrid the giant had came along
To take him far away.
Into the magical world he went,
At Hogwarts he found his friends:
Ron the redhead and Hermione
Whose lecture never ends.
Along with them Harry studied magic,
What made chairs fly and tables crack.
Then they dis

Suck me in.

Ease my pain and doubt.
Distract me once.

And brighten my life

You and me.
Fill me with color

Another day passes and on our knees we cry.
On our feet we fight and we die for our beliefs.
Damned hearts rot inside us.
Devastation arose from the ashes of war.
Cities turning into black dust of endless cries of sorrow.
Children cry silently in the arms of their dead mothers.
The sun never again shines over the black earth.
Wars of endless cries have consumed the world.
All those who can fight are now dead on the battlefields.
Young, old the government doesn't care.
Victory is at stake so every one fight.
And death greets them all at equal sorrow misery.
Once the children laughed and now they cry.
They die because of the greed of the people in control.
The toys in their arms are replaced by guns for killing.
Their games are replaced by war itself.
Another bomb falls and kills innocent people.
Their bodies now rest forever under the rubble of destruction.
Fires of war consume every house and every living thing.
Everything burns in the sorrow flames of despair.
