you've told me so often.
you haven't left me one rag of illusion to clothe myself in."

we can't all be

"we can't all be happy, we can't all be rich, we can't all be lucky- and it would be so much less fun if we were… 
there must be the dark background to show up the bright colors"

silent shout

"i never knew this could happen to me
i know now fragility
i know there's people who i haven't told
i know of people who are getting old

wish i could speak in just one sweep
what you are and what you mean to me
instead i mumble randomly
you stand by and enlighten me…"

up high

"ah, the night is calling
and it whispers to me softly come and play
ah, i am falling
and if i let myself go i'm the only one to blame

i'm safe
up high
nothing can touch me
but why do i feel this party's over?
no pain
you're like perfection
how do i feel this good sober?"

"help, i have done it again
i have been here many times before
hurt myself again today
and the worst part is there's no one else to blame…"

once upon a dream

"i know you, i walked with you once upon a dream
i know you, that look in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
and i know it's true that visions are seldom what they seem
but if i know you, i know what you'll do
you'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream"

"one gonna heal my body another gonna heal my pain
one gonna settle me down then bring me back up again
i'm gonna put my family back together again…

one gonna hold my memories another gonna close the door
one gonna leave me restless another wanting more
you're gonna keep my soul it was yours to have long ago"
