YOURS FOR LIFE

 

I fell alone

from a sky no longer fit to call a home

for a man who wonders how imagination

leads to his desires

you need not to view upon fields of stars forever

to see them changing

 

So if you see me tumbling, tiresome

still alive with tears for wiping

shake them off

 

and when you feel me fumbling, frightened

from this day on I’m yours for life

we’ll make it up

you can bathe me in whatever you got

 

I went to hold you

just as I had held them away

from streaming down my weary face

you dressed in lace I hardly recognised you

walking down, grandmothers gown

it was hanging from your precious shoulders

 

So if you see me tumbling, tiresome

still alive with tears for wiping

shake them off

 

and when you feel me fumbling, frightened

from this day on I’m yours for life

we’ll make it up

you can bathe me in whatever you got

While you’re picture sits a shrine upon my wall
