Ten Years. Two Shows. A Million Memories.

Ten years. Two shows. A million memories.
As the stars shine, your music sets me free.
With a heart in pain and longing for peace,
The tune plays on to sweet release…

And when I feel the notes washing over me…

Ten years. Two shows. A million memories.
You are there when no one else believes,
You the are courage and strength inspiring me,
And when I listen, there’s no where I can’t reach…

Your words, they touch my very soul…

Ten years. Two shows. A million memories.
Do you know how much your lyrics speak to me?
Your music is the heartbeat of my life,
Moving me and soothing me night after night…

You’ll never know how much this moment means to me…

Ten Years. Two shows. A million memories…

Hurt Yourself

If I could place my hand to your heart
Would your soul know where you start?
Or would it just keep on bleeding, singing
Songs of a life that’s never kind?

If you could truly see my heart,
This girl who doesn’t know where to start,
Would you trust me enough to part,
From believing words that aren’t

Even close to what I mean?

Now I’d let go but I can’t help,
Loving you like no one else,
And I know you think I let you down,
Even though I gave through the pain you dealt,
You were the one who hurt yourself

You placed your hand to my heart
And I felt where your soul starts,
I can’t explain what it’s done to mine,
A feeling so cruel and a feeling so kind

Now I’d let go but I can’t help,
Loving you like no one else,
And I know you think I let you down,
Even though I gave through the pain you dealt,
You were the one who hurt yourself

Against the Sky

To set this all against the sky
And have so many reasons why,
I was somehow not only goodbye
But I’m still drifting out tonight.

And here I stand waiting,
You’re here but you don’t stay,
A chance that I am taking,
Your lost forlorn sigh.

To shape my self against the sky,
I catch those clouds in your eyes,
But I lose the sunlight
In the depths of this darker fight.

Faded stars against the sky,
This moon awaits your alibi.
I can’t wait so long until dawn,
So soon my heart must be gone.

To set this all against the sky,
Please trust my reasons why,
To you I could never say goodbye
But I can’t stay tonight…

You need to be free against the sky…

The Quiet Girl

Behind the reflections of the outside,
Where I’m ready with a smile,
In the song of laughter they have missed me,
A few tears here that they will never see,
The quiet girl in love with misery.

They don’t understand me,
I wait in someplace hollow
And I hope in the edge of darkness
For the second rose to bloom,
Carelessly thinking perhaps the last one came too soon,
The quiet girl fights her own heart; aches in the silence.

They might as well forget me,
The one who drew him back,
Rejoiced in soft mauve miracles,
Flying there freely all too soon;
For his words have forgotten me, and his heart has too.
The quiet girl wishes she could part; but there’s too much there inside her heart.

Can’t they see she would never choose?
That love comes regardless of what it makes you lose?

When they’re still here beside me,
Why do I crave his words and touch?
Why do I blankly stare and sit there; listen to his stabs of silence?
Because his pain will always be mine, his soul will always stir my own,
My love for him hurts so much…yet it feels most like home.
This quiet girl she longs to go, but he knows he’ll always have hold on her soul…
