Lionheart

It's so confusing
It's dark and I'm losing
Sight of what is right
I want you to let me be
Please just let go of me
What I say I can't repeat
This constant yearning
It's consuming and burning
There's nothing you can do
And still you take me

Oh you are
My lionheart
Lionheart
Fierce protector, deny human nature
Oh you are
My lionheart

Like a sliver of a splinter
You get under my skin
The more I try to rid you
The more pain I inflict
I can't say with much conviction
I can see the light of day
Yet you drag me to the surface
Help me breathe and get away

Oh you are
My lionheart
Lionheart
Fierce protector, deny human nature
Oh you are
My lionheart

Well said.

Starcrossed.

If I could, I would paint the world over
So you could see the billion shades of gray
The lines you see are all an illusion
Drawn to keep your mind under lock and key

One day this will all come crashing down
Stars from the heavens spilling to make you see
The hot brands cause a pain that scars
And they spell your name, the blame, the shame

If we were all meant to be the same
Then why are we all so differently beautiful
Woe falls on those who take but do not give
Starcrossed are those born under this sky

One day this will all come crashing down
Stars from the heavens spilling to make you see
The hot brands cause a pain that scars
And they spell your name, the blame, the shame
