In My Arms

Late at night the phone rings
And you’re knocking down my door
Saying you just want to quit
So I hold you closely in my arms
Cause I know you’re stronger than this

Feeling the scars on your back
I’m reminded of the weight you carry
Always standing on two feet
With the world on your shoulders
So I hold you closely in my arms
Cause I know you’re stronger than this

Even when you’re shaking in pain and anger
We breathe in deep
And it all just falls away
So I hold you closely in my arms
Cause I know you’re stronger than this

Those striking brown eyes filled with trouble
Peer into mine late at night
We don’t move
I just hold you closely in my arms
Cause I know you’re stronger than this

Saying you just want to quit
Is just not our way
In my arms
We are stronger than this

Two to Tango

Alone in this empty house
Feet permanently fixed to the ground
No where to run
No where to hide
The stains remain upon the bed
Sheets lie in a tangled messed on the floor
Feathers float through the air
Landing among the crimson sea
We are its creators
Destruction is our path
Consumed by the lust, by the greed
We are taken away by a moment’s whim
Sitting separately
Hugging ourselves
Little has been built
A question flits through the silence
Driven mad we are
She is lost in fear
And he in anger
Clothes were launched across the room hours ago
But neither bothers to collect
The deed is done
The deed is done
Yet when will he accept
So that as one they can dance on
