Is this an epiphany or just a curse?
or the result of confusion or worse
For all I know I was surely the first
To catch all your tears that burst.
Like shooting stars that fell above
I held your hand and thought of love
I can't let you dwell behind a shadow
Of someone you held and follow
I'll eat all your misery and swallow
Live a life that's empty and hollow
I'll be the shell that surrounds you
Be the world that you always knew
For I will light the darkness for you
Burn my soul until it's totally through
For our lives intertwine in every turn
But I will never cede nor ever learn
That your eyes are set so far away
It will always elude me even If I stay...
For you will never see me as I linger
'til the day I slip through your fingers.
