Track 8

Shells

Posted on Posted in When daylight Arrives

Will I ,will I survive?
Or will I be taken over by the tide?
All is shells
Shiny but empty
Pretty but hollow
Broken discarded
Seasoned by sorrow

Will I,will I break free?
Or will I be drowned in the depths of the sea?
All is driftwood
Rusty and grey
Salty and stained
Broken discarded
Ruined by rain

Couldn’t I just sail away
To an island of flowers where sweet music plays?
Couldn’t I just find an island
Somewhere in this room?
Where a beautiful tune
Plays out over my heart
To give me new hope to make a new start

Will I, will I calm my emotion?
Or will I be drowned in the depths of the ocean?
I’m driftwood
No sight of land
No leg to stand
Rusty and stained
Ruined by rain
Ruined by rain
