Listen

Sit on my lap dear child

Look there

Do you see them

No grandfather, I don’t see them

Look closer child

They were promised a new life

One that they would be happy

So there they stood

Along the edge of the water

Waiting and waiting for a ship never to come

Delight and happiness they called the ship

Yet years went by

Delight and happiness never arrived

And look again dear child, they’re still there

Waiting

What does that teach you

To stand for something you believe in

No, good but no. Never lose hope child

Did you listen?

Lifetime

Lifetimes roll by

like waves in the sea

Lifetimes sing in your ear

Like a choir singing right here

Lifetimes are rolling ever closer

Singing the song made especially for you

Just look out you’re window to see it

It’s like snow falling ever so slowly

Lifetimes aren’t rolling quickly

Every roll is another obstacle

Just for you to jump over

Each obstacle getting bigger

Until

Lifetimes end with you…

Sorry

I’m sorry for everything I’ve done

I’m sorry for what the world is

I’m sorry I couldn’t be better

I’m sorry for once

I regret losing opportunities

I regret losing myself

I regret being cruel

I regret losing you

I wish things could be different

I wish I could be better

I wish you hadn’t run away

I wish we could still be here

We used to be in so much love

We used to have a second chance

But now that love is over again

Never to show it’s face again

I wish I could find better words

But all that there’s left to say

Is

I’m sorry
