Kryptonite

Folder: 
Love

You can be my kryptonite

You can bring my downfall

Bring me to my knees

Pull the energy out of me

You can be the fire

That finally consumes me

Weakness or ecstasy

You could be my kryptonite

Cold Embrace

Folder: 
Love
Filled with despair
“I'll meet you there”
Said to the phone
My heartbeat drones
To meet your love
And all thereof
To act, to show
So that they'll know
That we've moved on
(Our shared con)
All eyes assume
Within the room
But I just can't face
Your cold embrace

Mists of Time

Folder: 
Light and Dark

“I had a child just like you”

She said to me that day

Waiting in the hospital

On my knees to pray

She didn't know who I was

Her mind just couldn't see

That I knew who she talked about

The child was truly me.

 

We'd had this converse once before

And many before that

The degradation of her mind

Was obvious, as she sat

And prattled on about her son

How happy he will be

With her family when she comes home

And I had to agree

 

She never found her memories

Or recognized my face

After everything she went through

She's in a better place

Where memories last forever

And can't be lost to time

Where human bodies don't break down

Always in their prime

 

Many years have come and gone

I can't recall them all

It's not like I haven't tried

But the thoughts just have a pall

I try to stare back to the past

Peer directly through the grime

Just like a fog covered my eyes

It's hard to see through mists of time

Believe

Folder: 
Band Lyrics

Track #15: Believe

Verse 1:

Believe in yourself.

Believe in love

Because the right one

Will make it known that

You’re truly “us”

In each other.

 

Chorus:

The right one will have you

Feel it in your bones that you’re truly “us”

Whenever you are together.

Just believe on what is real.

Skip the drama.

 

Verse 2:

Believe in yourself.

Believe in love

Because the right one will treat you

Like you’re truly “us” in each other.

 

Bridge:

Take a look inside:

Believe in yourself.

Take care of yourself.

The right one will surely find you

Whenever you are truly lonely.

Even in a sea of people,

The right one will have you believe in love.

Just believe on what is real

Because life is worth living for.

About believing in love even after you feel like you don't deserve it because you are broken.

Death of Infatuation

Folder: 
Light and Dark

I've never seen an angel bleed

Till I stood with knife in hand

I've never seen a devil cry

Till I looked once through it's eyes

 

You were my drug

Long before I acclimated

Long before withdrawal

I needed you to survive

 

I can feel your eyes on my back

Can't you hear me?

I'm silent on the outside

But screaming on the inside

I'm soul-lost

I can't find who I am anymore

 

Maybe I'll be fine

Perhaps I will survive

But I just don't know if

I can outlast your memory

 

If I lose myself in drugs and dreams

Or fly away to places and things

To fill the gap you left behind

Consuming body, soul, and mind

 

But there is no need

To conjure dreams

When life comes

In such radiant colors

 

They say Pandora is to blame

Her curiosity brought us pain

And fear of darkness in the night

But there was hope in candle-light

 

From the dark, a light will shine

Before the day, the night has gone

And now we know it burns so fine

That is why it's called, breaking dawn.

 

And maybe, just maybe

That which dies gives birth to something new

Reason

Folder: 
Band Lyrics

Verse 1:

No matter how far we are,

I’ll become your memory.

I’ll become your everything

‘Cause I cannot give up

On this love that we share.

You are my reason to live.

 

Chorus:

‘Cause a life worth living

Is a life worth sharing.

Tell me why you’re constantly playing games:
You’re hot and you’re cold.

But, still, I like you.

I cannot deny these feelings.

‘Cause you’re my reason.

 

Verse 2:

‘Cause a light came on

Whenever I hear our song.

Like lovers of the same heart:
We understood each other better.

Awkward silences are our thing.

But, with you, is something

I cannot be without.

 

Bridge:

Whenever we’re together,

I can feel our love

Dangling in the air.

Can you feel it too?

Can you hear my heart?

‘Cause you’re the reason

That it beats for.

Mosaic

Folder: 
Psalms

Only You can pick up the pieces

Of my shattered past

And make something beautiful from it

Gathering the shards and placing them

Into an amazing and wondrous design

Like a stained glass window

Each piece meticulously positioned

Into a picture only the designer could see

 

When I give to You my best

I try so hard to make You proud

My feeble attempts

Like a bruised and broken flower

You hold it gently, press and mount it

Hanging it high for all to see

 

One day I pray that I can look back

And see my whole life laid before me

All the hurt and pain I experienced

Interwoven with the joy and happiness

A blanket that I can wrap my heart up with

And the knowledge that my life wasn't in vain

That I could see every stitch You made

How You carried me all the way

And brought me home to stay

Choice

I keep on running

and still my feet don’t hit the ground

I should be out of words by now.

 

I don’t stay for the singing, I stay for the beat.

I stay for how hard my heart pounds as the sun goes down.

I stay for the feeling

whether it lifts me up or chokes me on the ground,

we need to burn like fire or we could burn out.

 

Take it in

take it in

bring it out

this is your song,

I want you,

I don’t want your mind to pull you away

so I will listen to it with you.

 

I think

your voice is the one singing in my throat,

I listen and write and

it gets clearer every day.

 

I think

love is a choice

and I am choosing you,

I am knowing you no matter what.

Something Wonderful

Folder: 
2017

Have you ever looked at some one

and known that this person would change your life?

I don’t know what it was about her

but I knew she was something special.

 

Maybe it was the way her face lit up

when she smiled.

 

Maybe it was the way she looked at me

that completely melted my heart.

 

Maybe it was the way she said my name

like no one else had before her.

 

Maybe it was the way she was so carefree

so unapologetically herself.

 

When I looked into her eyes for the first time

I saw what we could be

and in that instant I knew it was something wonderful.
