Shadows in my life

Shadows in my life

 

I walk in the valley of shadow and doubt

I know not what life is all about

Though lips I have learnt to purse and pout

And sing to the tune of Schubert’s Trout

For I embark on life’s last ferry

And all around, within, seems dreary

Conjuring up moments so merry

I realize my heart’s too weary

Through fading faces I walk alone

Through shadows and pleasures that once shone

Unto my eyes, brought my lips a moan

It’s all gone now, is my heart of stone?

I walk and walk, an endless journey

Through ashen faces once so creamy

To future for which I hold no key

With haggard eyes taken for dreamy

[Haggard steps mistaken for dreamy]

  1. Let me take the journey with you
    On a endless journey to the bottom of our soul
    I hope this is a start of a new journey…

    That ashen faces
    I never should begin
    Now I’m sure that I won’t forget you

    No one knows, what the, future holds
    Our courage will unite
    In our hands, we hold the future never before

    Haggard eyes taken for dreamy
    Yes, I see the world in that eyes
    Haggard steps mistaken for dreamy
    [If mistaken, oh Lord punish me, punish me, the suffering…]

  3. Here comes GP….
    I see her walking down the street
    She’s all by herself
    Trying so hard to please her, but
    But, she’ll never break, never break, never break,
    This heart of stone
    Oh, no, no, this heart of stone

    What’s different about her? I don’t really know
    I walk the streets like a broken man
    Oh I wish that you would understand (GP)
    Even though you’re still the one I wait for.
