I Will Hope Again

I Will Hope Again

Only one candle left,
and I suppose that one will burn out soon;
leaving me in darkness again.
I'm holding on to my faith.
I thought it was growing,
but with every prayer,
I grow colder.

Chorus:
I know I'll get through this,
though somedays I doubt,
that it will ever end.
Allthough it won't be today,
I will hope again.
You will turn this wreck into a princess yet.

I no longer make promises for tomorrow,
for it's a miracle if I make it through today.
I wonder everday why you let me go here,
it feel so wrong.
I feel like I'm at the end of the road,
and no longer remember how to hope.

Chorus:
I know I'll get through this,
though somedays I doubt,
that it will ever end.
Allthough it won't be today,
I will hope again.
You will turn this wreck into a princess yet.

I'm trying to hold on to what I can't see,
and it's getting harder than you can know.
The only thing that keeps me sane,
is knowing that everything happens for a reason.

Chorus x2:
I know I'll get through this,
though somedays I doubt,
that it will ever end.
Allthough it won't be today,
I will hope again.
You will turn this wreck into a princess yet.

I know I'll get through this,
though somedays I doubt,
that it will ever end.
Allthough it won't be today,
I will hope again.
You will turn this wreck into a princess yet.

I will hope again.

uhhhhh

The boy told me hope was like a feather

It’s so light and frail

And so easily it can be brought down

‘How nice it would be,’ he said.

‘If we could just get high off believing.’

 

In my mind I saw the perfect picture

But what good is planning

If you get there first

My paints were ready and laid out for use

Just as your brushes were being put back away

 

In my mind I saw the perfect words

Put together and ready to tell you

But what good are these thoughts

I believed to be so sincere

When I hear that drone whisper them in your ear

 

On a dark afternoon walking alone

I picked up a feather off the street

And it gave me a bit of hope

With colors like nothing I’d ever seen

This old bird was unique

 

In a souvenir shop on the side of the street

Inside are trinkets decorated, you see

Then, there it is for just $2.99!

The feather and its colors that were so original to me

Carelessly glued on pieces of plastic crap

 

‘So what good is hope?’ said he.

‘I’d rather just pretend to believe.’

 
it has been a really long time since i have written anything. hellllpppp??

Apocalypse

Far into the sky
I dig into thy thoughts and thy dreams
Will an eternal sleep of thee
Extinguish thine memories?

For it's all around thee
That the rest of we sleep
In that golden room of brass
The fire is thin, like blades of grass

For it's deep inside the human mind
It's not what you see, yet it's far behind
The burning sensation of feelings never released
Stuck in this prison, held to be ceased

'Tis here I belong, alone and afar
To let it decay straight to thy heart
Thy demons are bleeding while angels shall cry
I see through the lines, a war in my eyes


This is just something I wrote for my Creative Writing class. It was supposed to be in the same sort of style as Edgar Allan Poe.

Let me know what you all think.

Haunted: Vol. 01

(Guitar solo, then rest of the band)

~Verse 01~
Take a journey,
touch the poisoned black rose,
fall into my world and find the secret to a tainted heart.

~Hook~
Feel the darkness when you breathe!
Take the shadows into your mind!
Hear the pain when I scream!
And soon you'll die when I bleed.

~Chorus~
All the time I've been dyeing (I have loved you!)
All the time I've been crying (I have loved you!)
You sat there with a silent tear
Holding what I've come to fearYour beauty haunts me and I,
Can't seem to flyYour love still taunts me
I will love you till you love me

~Verse 02~
Shattered glass from my mirror, I have been standing here too long, blood lifts the spirit in me, which has been blackened for too damn long.

~Hook~
Why are you laughin' at me?
You think it's not haunting me?
What the fuck is wrong with you?
Can't see what I sing is true?

~Chorus~
All the time I've been dyeing (I have loved you!)
All the time I've been crying (I have loved you!)
You sat there with a silent tear
Holding what I've come to fear
Your beauty haunts me and I,
Can't seem to fly
Your love still taunts me
I will love you till you love me

~2nd hook slow~
You wait till I bleed
Then you stand in front of me
holding a grudge
I can see you fade
and you don't know what is enough
here you go
farther away!

~Repeat Chorus 2x~
All the time I've been dyeing (I have loved you!)
All the time I've been crying (I have loved you!)
You sat there with a silent tear
Holding what I've come to fearYour beauty haunts me and I,
Can't seem to flyYour love still taunts me
I will love you till you love me

~~~~~~~~~2nd x~~~~~~~~~~~
All the time I've been dyeing (I have loved you!)
All the time I've been crying (I have loved you!)
You sat there with a silent tear
Holding what I've come to fearYour beauty haunts me and I,
Can't seem to flyYour love still taunts me
I will love you till you love me

~break Re:3x~
I will love you till you love me!

Need help

I don't have any songs that I have written, but I do have a question. My fiance just bought a new editing pogram so he can record his stuff and make a cd. He asked me to look and find free rap beats/instrumentals so he can use them, but I don't have any clue where to look. I googled and found a few things, but nothing that looks right to me. I figure, el jay has everyone on it, someone must know, so I am asking for help. If anyone could give me some, it would be great, thanks in advance.

ok, i write a lot... i'm a glutton for words. here are a few songs... give me feed back, let me know what you think, etc. (you know... butcher it for what it's worth) if you like it, tell me, if not, tell me anyway.... if you really like it though, go ahead and add me... songs and ridiculous poetry make up the majority of my updates... live long and pollute, disease and distribute....

THE RICHES ARE FOR BASTARDS

i've grown so much older this year
the price of time is uncanny
the worst things are all free
so don't put your money towards a broken heart
blow it on something shiny and sturdy
something that will never fall apart
and just be happy with it
fool yourself today
and if you have something to give, give it

the people down in westport are all walking around in circles
dropping coins in tip jars, and pouring liquor down their throats,
and garnishing their egos with fifteen dollar shows
they'd throw their chips down on meaning,
but everybody already knows
what happens on earth stays on earth
you can't cash out before it's time to go

the riches are for bastards
i quit my job today
to take pity on the working man
who pisses his life away
i can steal more from life
than you will ever earn
i don't need to pay tuition
i can afford the time to learn
that it doesn't matter what happens here on out
because no one on this greedy planet has ever been sure
of anything except that death's what's been killing us
and our paychecks never could allow us to find the cure

i've grown so much older this year
the price of time is uncanny
the worst things are all free
so don't put your money towards a broken heart
blow it on something shiny and sturdy
something that will never fall apart
and just be happy with it
fool yourself today
and if you still have a life to live, live it

the people down in westport are all walking around in circles
dropping coins in tip jars, and pouring liquor down their throats,
and garnishing their egos with fifteen dollar shows
they'd throw their chips down on meaning,
but everybody already knows
what happens on earth stays on earth
you can't cash out before it's time to go

it's time to go
tip your bartenders and waitresses
it's time to go


GIRLY DON'T TAKE NO SHIT


don't forget to be shallow
mother carved your eyes hollow
just like you speak when spoken to
with a shortened tongue

keep your distance
mind only your own business
keep on pissing in the wind
do what matters to everyone

when the weakest seams are ripping
and you're about to lose your filling
when you get the chance, do so and leave them all stunned

when your face is white and your stomach churns
like you might cough up your heart, but not before it bursts
make sure the blood splatters on their faces, do so at least in the name of fun
girly don't take no shit

don't forget the me in you, baby
the one who taught you not to be a lady
the tear down the middle of the
picture painted on you by everyone

tell them to keep their distance
your ups and downs are none of their fucking business
and if anyone gives you so much as a mouth full
show them that you can stretch that stunted tongue

when the weakest seams are ripping
and you're about to lose your filling
when you get the chance, do so and leave them all stunned

when your face is white and your stomach churns
like you might cough up your heart, but not before it bursts
make sure the blood splatters on their faces, do so at least in the name of fun
girly don't take no shit

make 'em go round round
chase 'em all down down
steal back that crown
shoulda been prom queen
show 'em just what you mean
girly don't take no shit

make 'em go round round
chase 'em all down down
steal back that crown
shoulda been prom queen
show 'em just what you mean
girly don't take no shit


SUGARCOATED TORPEDOES

sweet and sometimes sweeter are the words that melt and run from my lips
but sugarcoated torpedoes i hear can still sink shorebound ships
so i cast a whisper to you softly, to keep the seas between us from growing choppy
but nigh are the winds of another storm
sure to set you adrift toward an island unlike mine
with far better shade, but no one there to keep the nights warm

so i stand upright, reaching freely
waving so that you might see me
but i don't think i'll ever be that tall

so if on a whim, you wander afar from your newfound home,
endeavor the gales, the squalls, the tidal waves,
paddle towards the inland currents in shadow and alone,
creep the beaches before my eyes, for they are open to what they crave

and i will warm the night, give you feeling
behaving so you will continue to see me
but i don't think you will ever show at all


STRAY

i butchered my own birthday song
took my licks, still going strong
behind my muzzle i've got some bite
growl at you until i get it off tonight

what's the matter baby? don't you see something you like?
eyes all but open, with those metal teeth to grind
sleep harder baby, i'll teach you to leave a stray behind

just when i thought i'd broken my last home
winter got cold on skin and bones
scraps got meager and the generous were few
i'm lost baby, my stomach churns for you...


ISOLOPHOPIA

i know you're crippled
standing on one leg of self esteem
that's why i like you when i'm feeling kind of mean
i don't punch
don't spit
don't shove your nose in shit
but i know how little you are
and i know how to make fun of it

go ahead and try to leave me
raise your fists girl and i'll take away your spine
you and your isolophobia
can't keep each other company, so you'll always be mine

i know you're crippled
keeping your battered ego in a sling
that's why i hate you just like i do with everything
i don't punch
don't spit
don't shove your nose in shit
but i know how sensitive you are
and i know how to make you feel like i did

what a love story, yes, i do believe
every word hurts you more than it hurts me

what a love story, yes, i do believe
every word hurts you more than it hurts me


go ahead and try to leave me
raise your fists girl and i'll take away your spine
you and your isolophobia
can't keep each other company, so you'll always be mine

you'll always be mine


INSOMNIAX REMEDIES

when all the creeps are sleeping
near the warmth of an open duct
and all the children kneel at the foot of their beds
with hands clasped tight for better luck
i'm home alone in this luke warm dump
with less than a pint of optimism
left in this half empty cup
watching traffic walk by outside my window
...is that depressing or what?
the answer is yes...
...yes it is.

i remember when i was younger
and the world was spinning nice and slow
but now with all the sticks and stones
that are being thrown
this world is gonna die...
...alone.

in the days that i was awake
and this globe was set aflame
my home filled with smoke
and the galactic fire department came
they attempted to hose me down
to make the pain go away
then they pulled their ladders down
and said that i could not be saved
...i could not be saved.

these insomniax remedies aren't working
i've got to lull myself to sleep
and while this world keeps on burning
i am still not me
i have not slumbered but one wink

alas, this is the snow globe filled with ash
a sky lit with glowing embers
i believe i could dose through septembers past
although i cannot remember...


OFF YOU GO

i don't have the patience to steer two lives at once
if you want my suggestion or just a steady hand
then i think i might be in the right mind to pretend
that i'm still good for you and
i'm getting better with every sober breath of air

but if you think that i will keep you on your feet, well change your mind now
i'll be the one lying on the floor in defeat, and you'll be the one dragging me around

forget about me today, i'm nothing but deadweight
a chip waiting to drop on your shoulder
an immature soul whose angst grows no older
and though i love you, and i cling
i have felt the wrathful aftermath that i bring
...so off you go

New to Journal and Music

Hey I am new to livejournal and have picked up music in the past couple years. Here is a song I wrote give me opinions and feedback if you would like. Thanks.

I DIG MY GRAVE

Verse 1:
I see a sign of truth in your words
set out not too destroy me.
You filtered through all of the lies
and the only one you kept has killed me.

Chorus:
I dig my grave in the depth of night
singing with these voices in my head.
And I'm dead, I'm dead, I'm dead....
I sleep in peace

Verse 2:
Circumstance has brought me this way
darkened skies bring showers of rain.
So say goodnight and hello to dawn
I am dead and still moving on.

Chorus:

Breakdown:
From within my soul will live
From these words I will win......

Chorus x 2

That is the end. Pretty normal song, about being dead inside and your spirit is gone but the outside flesh still lives on. I will have more and I would like to hear from anyone. Thanks.

gray eyes is finished :)

hey, my song gray eyes is finished so here I am posting it. enjoy:

I thought that my dreams would never come true
That the figure was just an imagination
But now I see my dream standing clear
And once again I see these sad stone cold eyes
Wishing there was some way to escape the pain
But your demented figure remains still as stone
Maybe you’re real or maybe it’s my mind
But who the heck do you think has ever seen gray eyes?


Chorus: did you ever think this day would ever come true
Did you ever see the light in my eyes?
My eyes are the green ones but who’s are the gray’s?
“Ezren Maze” you say with defiance and grace
You weight of the world is on my shoulders and off of yours
Crushing me down and lifting you up
Once you reach the heavens your eyes lit up
Now I can see those perfect gray eyes

Do you haunt me or do you taunt me?
I feel the burn in my soul for a lie
But I don’t know why
I see your eyes wide and clear
And somehow and for some reason I am frozen still
There’s something mysterious about your eyes and the way you look at me
It’s almost majestic and your all I’ve ever know to be from a dream

Repeat chorus

You’re my dream man living out in life
You don’t know what you’re doing but the gray eyes help
Were you sent from heaven or just a special dream?
I may be hallucinating; but you know I can’t break away
You stain my life and make me glaze over
You break my heart into a thousand pieces
I don’t know who you are but you are my love
You are the dream man with the gray eyes

Repeat chorus
