We spend all our lives,
We stack until monuments
of marble tower before us.
We stack on for miles
and miles, rows of dominoes
disappearing along the horizon.
When we stacked as many as we could,
We’d sit and marvel at its majestic glow,
building momentum to keep going.
Until someone comes along and rattles the earth
beneath us. We watch as the first domino begins to
fall. We run along them desperate to hold them
We’re helpless. We’re left to watch as
everything we’ve worked so hard for
crashes to the sand, and when it
is done, we’re left to stand
in the middle of our
to salvage what
is left behind
Nothing about this
has ever made any sense.
A love of pain and passion
littered with suspense.
A true and tragic romance,
a symphony of dismay.
A satisfying ending
beginning every day.
A million days of torture, a million with the blues,
A million in the depths of hell, just to be with you.
A million days inside the storm, for one inside the eye.
It’s worth the hurt and heartache, one day can get me by.
A million dark explosive nights, to laugh among the ash.
A million miles a minute flying, waiting for the crash.
A million gun fights, one on one, combatting with a knife.
I would die a million times, to keep you in my life.
A million lies resurfaced, a million accepting blame.
A million trapped alone in fear, calling out in vain.
A million moments pulling down, deep below the sea.
I don’t care how much it takes, just stay up here with me.
One millionth of a second on the surface of the sun
Is still a moment in the stars – we’ve only just begun.
I bid my heart a sweet release,
A promise to thee, I wish to keep.
I hope by morning, it’ll be okay,
To say goodbye, and fly away.
