Unlovely

I’ll be lonely
So unlovely
Won’t even try to breathe until I find a view
I’ll be lonely
Although you love me
And I’ll wrestle with a heart so black and blue

I’ll be waiting
So uneasy
You can’t believe when time’s eye’s on you
Content to visit the demons I once knew
I’ll be lonely
Sometimes I prefer the color blue

I’ll be resting
In your twilight
If I cry you won’t hear or care to see it through
I’ll be changing
I’m always changing
And my soul will thrive half broken half in bloom

I’ll be lonely
So unlovely
I wish closed eyes could make you so unlovely too
I’ll be fearful
Oh so fearful
Of what I thought I could make lovely and so new…

Unlovely
So unlovely…
