Wanderlust

I fell in love

with a nightingale

He took my heart

And flew away

Do not fall in love 

with a nightingale 

They cannot stay

For this you pay

Its the wind 

you see?

It calls them still

It whispers:

Fly away from her

She will never do you good

A home girl and a Wanderer 

will always be apart

So take off now just be a man

Don’t mind her broken heart

The nightingale must fly away

There are so many things to see

I know you want to look at her

But think of Paris, Spain and Italy 

So fly off now don’t be afraid

Her face, it soon will fade

Just remember it is yours, the sky

and soar soar soar 

up high.

In the End

That was how I loved you in the end

From the top of a cliff

Jumping 

A leap of faith in the dark

Falling

with grasping reaching arms

Not knowing 

if you were at the bottom

to catch me

Or not. 

The Devil In Me

‘Cause I was filled with poison

And blessed with beauty and rage’

In the most industrial sense of the word

Black smoke engulfed mess of a woman,

You still stayed with my broken glass

Heart,

and my chaotic mind

Reckless

Soul sold to the devil.

I told you to stay,

Stay away

From my lace licked lies

Of red lipped neuroticism,

Do not love me

I said

For You will never be free,

With the devil in me.
