This Game

I’ve got this little black dress
A dollar to my name
Some hope in my pocket
And I’m here to play this game
Won’t be bound by
Ghosts of our memories
Won’t be held back by
Things we used to be
(we used to be)
I’ve got this tattered black dress
A few pennies to my name.
A drop of hope in my pocket
When’d you change the rules to this game?
You can wake up
In a different bed every morning
You can tell me
It’s the play of the rich
(But shame for the poor)
Now I’ve got this torn black dress
Not a penny to my name
Spent the hope in my pocket
But at least I’ve won your game.
I’m done now
Cause I can see
People like me
Shouldn’t speak!
(I was never one of you)
I’ve got this new black dress
Don’t need the dollars that you gave
Gathering some hope in my pockets
So no one else will have to play this game.

We Are

Here we are at the end; 
It seems as if we’ve only begun!
Sunrise was a moment ago; 
Sunset seems a far ways to go.

We’ve ended the way we began!

In Darkness we were born, 
Raised to live in the light, 
Forevermore afraid of the night.

We came so far together, 

But it’s almost midnight.
The Princess facade is fading; 
It’s time to face my demons alone.

You were my Prince Charming, 

I your Princess, darling.
At the stroke of midnight, 
I fled into the darkest light.

We are the broken and the beaten,

We are the loathers and the lovers
We are the fallen and the forsaken
We are the warriors and the solders

We are the story tellers,

We are the we are the legend makers.
Doomed to wander forever, 
Looking for the ones we remember.

We know more than we care

We dream more than we dare
We dance in a lament of fire, 
Forever lost in the fight of desire.

Don’t

Don’t fall into me,
Don’t lean on me,
Cause I’ll leave you,
I’ll bind you into me!

With sorrow filled words,

With hollowed promises,
I will tear into you,
I will break your world!

So don’t trust in me,

Don’t rely on me,
Cause I’ll lie to you,
I’ll turn you against me.

Don’t fall into me,

Don’t lean on me,
Cause I’ll leave you,
I’ll bind you into me!

I’ll be kind,

So long as it suits me.
I’ll be there,
So long as I need to be!

Don’t believe in me,

Don’t have faith in me!
Cause I’ll disappoint you,
I’ll break your soul into mine!

So don’t fall into me,

Don’t lean on me
Cause I’ll leave you
I’ll bind you into me!

Don’t think twice,

Don’t look back,
Go forward and onward
Forward and onward!

Take yourself away!

From me!
Take yourself where
I can’t see!

Don’t fall into me,

Don’t lean on me
Cause I’ll leave you
I’ll bind you into me!

Don’t fall into me,

Don’t lean on me
Cause I’ll leave you
I’ll bind you into me!
