Glitter Between Lashes

Your eyes are glimmering, glimmering
Your lips are whispering, glistening
It’s not a mystery, mystery


I see the glitter between your lashes
The fire in your eyes
I see you rising from the ashes
And staring at the sky


Your heart is missing beats, missing beats
Your soul is missing me, missing me
It’s not our history, history


I see the glitter between your lashes
The fire in your eyes
I see you rising from the ashes
And staring at the sky


I know it didn’t work, didn’t work like it should
You know I did my best, did everything I could
To keep us safe, every day, to keep us where we stood
But I was just too weak, no strength to keep us seeing what was good
Now, we’re fighting through, all the truth, we never understood
And I am chasing you, racing you, through the woods


I got lost along the way
Just couldn’t find the strength to stay
Trust that I’m sorry when I say
I never meant to change


Your eyes are shimmering, glittering
Your words are hitting me, hitting deep
It’s not a mystery, mystery


And after all this time
I’ve come to realize
That I was wrong to say goodbye


Now, I see the glitter between your lashes
The fire in your eyes
I see you rising from our ashes
And reaching for the sky


There’s a glitter between your lashes
A heart that wants to cry
I see the embers in your ashes
As you rise up to the night


Your eyes are shimmering, glimmering
Your heart is missing beats, missing me
Your lips are glistening, whispering
It’s no mystery, our history
It’s just history, no mystery


I see the glitter between your lashes
And the fire burning bright
I know I’ve turned your world to ashes
I’m trying hard to make it right


Your eyes are shimmering
Your lips are whimpering
My words are bittersweet


I see the glitter between your lashes
And the fire burning in your eyes

Your

Heart is missing beats, missing me

 

Such a great line, i could really tell that you got into this one.

Im quite jealous, actually, some of the rhymes and lyrics you have woven together are just fascinating and flow so well with each other. Kind of like a romeo and juliet mix with fairies. Awesome job!

I made the assumption

That between lashes meant between top and bottom instead of the bridge. And you know how I like to write about eyes.
I meant to write it as a love song, then when my brain weight the options of "missing me" and "listening" for the rhyme scheme, I chose to make it a lost love with a rectify theme.
Yeah, I definitely had fun with it. Can't wait to see how my brain wraps the next one up.

That'll be delayed.

I seem to have lost the musician I'd enlisted. But it will come, eventually.
