An Echo of Something

In a field of mournful broken hearts
The world stand still and begs for you to fall apart
Your shadow falls twice as hard
As the sunlight spills over the broken shards

And I don't know if I'm strong enough
To hold back the tide alone tonight
Though your world came crashing down on you
She's with the angels tonight

And though you are sinking
I know it's still true
That you'll see your way through
The darkness around you
I know it's empty
Out there around you
The things they've been saying
Misguided and untrue

And when you returned with aching dreams
It tore a hole in everywhere and everything
And you couldn't even say goodbye
You just smiled and waved as you began to cry

And I don't know if I'm strong enough
To hold back your tears alone tonight
Though your world came crashing down on you
She's with the angels tonight

And though you are sinking
I know it's still true
That you'll see your way through
The darkness around you
I know it's empty
Out there around you
The things they've been saying
Misguided and untrue

An empty heart just waiting to be filled
And yet it hangs over you like the stars
A lost soul with so much more to give
And yet you're holding your heart so far away

(c)2014 Scott-David Allen


Angel (How Can I Go On)

If the rain should come pouring down on me
I don't care
If the stars should dim and fall from the sky
I don't care

You are the missing piece
That makes me whole
You are the missing piece
That completes my soul

Angel, how can I go on
when your always in my head
Angel, how can I go on
when there's so much to be said

If the world should look upon me with evil eyes
I don't care
If the wind should fail to sing me to sleep each night
I don't care

(c)2004 Scott-David Allen


Crown Of Thorns

I've made my decisions
But this is not what I had envisioned
I've followed my heart
But my truest intentions always fell apart
Nothing speaks like blackened souls
Sometimes I'm so afraid
To think that for all eternity
I'll have to sleep in the bed I've made

I've tried to stay sane
But my past always catches up again
I've followed the path within
But it always seems to lead back to sin
Nothing speaks like a lover's kiss
Sometimes I fall to pleasure
Knowing that in the end
The punishment is too large to measure

Bow down. It's what you want
Bow down. It's what you need

And I know I've let you down
My shame and remorse scorn
And I'll be forever destined
To wear my crown of thorns

I've tried to trust
But my thought always return to lust
I've tried to be pure
But my feelings have never been so sure
Nothing speaks like eternal shame
Sometimes I falter
Head bowed down asking for forgiveness
At the foot of fate's alter

(c)1999 Scott-David Allen


Deep

I am one man, without the answers or the key
I am no one, why do you idolize me
You need inspiration, to go another day
Why must you constantly look my way

And when your world begins to fall
I am the one you look to, to fix it all
And every time you look deep inside of me
You take away another piece of me

When your eyes are far away
I can see you looking to another day
And I know what you desire is more
But I'm not the one you're looking for

When it seems like it's all in vain
I like to dance for a while in the rain
You take it all from deep inside
You take it all from deep inside

You rape my mind, conscience, body and soul
Why do you look to this frozen, empty hole?
I'm not the one that you truly desire
I'm not the one who sets you soul on fire

(c)1998 Scott-David Allen


Dreaming

Oh, I hear you screaming
But I can't hear what you're saying
Drowning in the voices in my head
And I can't feel anything

Sometimes, you pick me up
When I've fallen
But not this way
Sometimes you lift me up
When I'm drowning
But not this way

No, calm down
I think I see you
But then you're fading away
No, calm down
Am I falling
Because I can't see the ground

Oh, I hear you crying
And now you seem so far away
Tears are falling
But don't touch ground
And I
Can't even save myself

No, calm down
I think I see you
But then you're fading away
No, calm down
Am I falling
Because I can't see the ground
No, calm down
I want to touch you
But you won't reach out
No, calm down
Am I dying
Or am I only dreaming

(c)2004 Scott-David Allen


Drive Me Home

Your first breath was your last
And you're trying to stand on your own
The whole of your life has been so unkind

You bury it down deep inside
An unholy reminder of pain
Like a shard of glass within your soul

And I believe
That there was something deeper that you didn't show
An unspoken fear
That you felt you had to hold on to
And I believe
That there was something darker that you didn't let on
And in the end
You were running from yourself

Can you hear me calling you
From beyond
Will you drive me home
I'm feeling very numb
You can take it all away
But I'll always be your friend
Are you driving in circles
Or are you driving me to my end

You stand at the start
And you're dying to reach the end
Time feels like it's standing still
And you feel so alone
And you're searching for someone the same
But love can only go so far

(c)1998 Scott-David Allen


Empty Exorcism

The empty spaces filled
The cradle's torn and the bow breaks over head
Tears fall like rain
The body's young, but the mind is year ahead

Leather on skin
Your eyes are open, but they're clouded with rage
The gear grinds down hard
You're driving sober, but your mind spins out of control

Yeah, You can never touch me now
Yeah, You can never hurt me now

(c)1999 Scott-David Allen


Fields of Flesh, The

I can feel it in my heart
I can feel it in my gut
Though I walk with my eyes shut
I can see

And the lives you bleed
Make no difference this time
You'll be dying on the vine
And who will care

To me the buildings look like tombstones
Climbing up out of the grey
And I swear the people look like corpses
Crawling up out of their graves

And the things you say and the things I see
Scare the hell out of me
I don't want to see
And the smell it makes me feel so sick
Cause the words in my throat to stick
I don't want to believe

And all the voices
That keep swimming back to me
Are a cacophonic symphony
In my head

To me the buildings seem so empty
A monument to humanity
And I swear the people seem so worthless
A cancer on society

And the ghost that dance before my eyes
Make me want to break down and cry
I don't want to see
And the scars we wear on the outside
Are far too deep to ever hide I don't want to believe

And the things you say and the things I see
Scare the hell out of me
I don't want to see
And the smell it makes me feel so sick
Cause the words in my throat to stick
I don't want to believe

And the ghost that dance before my eyes
Make me want to break down and cry
I don't want to see
And the scars we wear on the outside
Are far too deep to ever hide I don't want to believe

(c)2014 Scott-David Allen


Forever

In your eyes I can see forever
And it makes me feel so alone
And under your breath I hear you say
There must be something more

And oh, I think there's something more
And oh, I hope there's something more

I hear you scream
Pick me up and take me away
And all around
Are the sounds of fallen hearts
And I hear you whisper
Take me to a better place
And all around
Is the fear that this is it

And I can hear your heart beat
And it sounds so cold
It aches for something more

And oh, I think there's something more
And oh, I hope there's something more

I hear you scream
Pick me up and take me away
And all around
Are the sounds of fallen hearts
And I hear you whisper
Take me to a better place
And all around
Is the fear that this is it
I'm slowing down
I fell your breath on my neck
And all around
Is the sense that something's near
You beg me to stop
I feel your lips pressed to mine
And all around
Is the hope there's nothing more

If The Heavens Should Fall

We can't see through your translucent ways
Your words get in our way
Your words get in our way

I don't think I'd want to see anyway
I'd rather be in the dark
I'd rather be in the dark

Drowning in angel's wings
Don't turn away
I swear your halo gives light to my way

And we're so naive
So cynical
We've come undone

And if the heavens should fall
I'll be covered in
A blanket of stars
I'll be the only one
To dance on my own grave
And if the sun goes out
We can dance
Beneath the clouds
The two of us
In a ghostly masquerade

We don't to be told what to say
We speak in our own words
We speak in our own way

And if you took everything I had away
I wouldn't care anyway
I wouldn't care anyway

(c)2004 Scott-David Allen


I'll See The Stars

I've seen the world end
Time and time again
Stood and watched the walls come down
Watched the cities burned to the ground

And when all is said and done
I know I'm not the only one
Left wanting something else
Wanting something more than this

We can sever all our useless ties
All you have to do is say you'll go
I can see the flames dance in your eyes
We can have it all please don't say no

And when it's ours
We can always ask for more
I'll see the stars
And want to be with them today

I've heard the souls cry out
Through the famines and endless droughts
An empty echo in their eyes
A lonely aching that never dies

And when all is said and done
I know I'm not the only one
Left wanting something else
Wanting something more than this

(c)2004 Scott-David Allen


Lonely, Like A Satellite

She sings to the stars
And smiles with her eyes
A fading glimpse
A trick of the light

She floats along
With breathless sighs
A lonely beacon in the night

But to you
She's just another satellite
A distant vision
Whose orbit has decayed
She closes her eyes
And she shuts out the light
She says
Everything looks better that way

Once or twice
Could never make her lose her place
But all her life
Could send her spinning off in space
Some may say
Its not the end
Of the human race
But to her
It feels the same

She floats alone
Across the sun
She drifts from day
Into night

She feels like
She's the only one
But she's one of billions in the night

(c)2004 Scott-David Allen


Love Crooked Love

My heart beats out of time
With the constant pounding in my head
Fear, heartless fear
It pulls me away from my dying dreams of
Love, evil love
A constant craving to be heard
Time, wretched time
Has stolen away the only things I've ever held dear

I have never known love
I have wanted you all this time

And every time I try
I'm diving harder towards the ground
Oh, I think I can fly
But my heart has spun me upside-down
Love, crooked love
It drives a stake into the soul
Pain, precious pain
It's caused by those that we are the closest to

And I don't need your sympathy
To find my way
And all I've ever struggled for
Was love, crooked love

I have never known love
I have wanted you all this time
I have never know love
To be anything but a lie
I've hated you all my life

(c)1998 Scott-David Allen


Most Beautiful Girl, The

All the things you've had to go through
And your still standing strong
All the things you've had to go through
And I couldn't love you more

And when its too much
And you just need to get away
Close your eyes, open your wings
And just fly away

When you're ready you can come down
Just calm down and breath in
I'll be there to keep the world out
The world out of your way

You're perfect the way you are
The rain pours down for you
You're beautiful in every way
You fill my heart and then steal it away
You're perfect the way you are
The stars align on you
You're beautiful in every way
You give me breath and then take it away

All these things deep inside you
That make you who you are
All these things deep inside you
Wouldn't trade them for the world
And when its too much
And you just need to get away
Close your eyes, open your wings
And just fly away

When you're ready you can come down
Just calm down and breath in
I'll be there to keep the world out
The world out of your way

You're perfect the way you are
The rain pours down for you
You're beautiful in every way
You fill my heart and then steal it away
You're perfect the way you are
The stars align on you
You're beautiful in every way
You give me breath and then take it away

When you're ready you can come down
Just calm down and breath in
I'll be there to keep the world out
The world out of your way

You're perfect the way you are
The rain pours down for you
You're beautiful in every way
You fill my heart and then steal it away
You're perfect the way you are
The stars align on you
You're beautiful in every way
You give me breath and then take it away
You're perfect the way you are
The rain pours down for you
You're beautiful in every way
You fill my heart and then steal it away

Necropolis

I've never seen you look so old
Your limbs are numb and your body's cold
I see your angels smiling down at me
I hear your angels crying out for me

And I want to love, but the feelings stick
And I try to push, but it's never enough
And I want to speak, but the words get stuck
And I try to run, but it's never enough

And I see your smile and it looks like death
Into your eyes all I see is death
And I don't need your angels smiling down at me
And I don't want your angels crying out for me

(c)1999 Scott-David Allen


Negative

I don't want to be the one
Staring straight into the sun for you
I don't need to be the one
Left holding onto the gun for you
I don't want to be the one
Holding up the falling sky for you
I don't need to be the one
Patching up your broken dreams for you

I don't wanna hold the shards
I don't need to show my cards
I don't wanna be the one left in a dark room
I don't wanna play this game
I don't want it to be the same
I don't wanna be a part of your stupid little

Break down
All the things that made us who we thought we were
Break down
All the things that make us who we have become

I don't wanna be the one
Left behind after all I've done for you
I don't need to be the one
Helping you to hide away from you

I don't wanna hold your hand
I don't need to understand
I don't wanna be a memory in an empty frame
I don't wanna close me eyes
I don't need to realize
I don't wanna be a part of your stupid little

Break down
All the things that made us who we thought we were
Break down
All the things that make us who we have become

Break down, Break down
Is this really fun for you?
Break down
All the things that we could never be again

I don't wanna be a burnt out negative

(c)2016 Scott-David Allen


Never

Please Heaven, hear my calls
Please Heaven
Amen, amen

Please Heaven, stop my fall
Please Heaven
Will we ever lose ourselves
And believe

One day
Some day
We never could believe
Never

Stay with me, stay and believe
One more day and then never again
Please Heaven, please don't
Go never, no

Listen, listen, listen to me
Oh, these things, these things aren't what they seem
We were never holly
We were never whole

(c)2016 Scott-David Allen


Never Fade Away

A crack in the ice
My life's turned upside-down
I sense your warmth
In my soul

Love's gentle hand
Lead's me on my way
For the first time in years
I don't feel alone

So much I didn't say
I hope you can hear me now
So much I couldn't say until now
All the things that I miss
I long to hear you laugh
I never dreamt it would be so hard

Things that you've said
They echo through my head
Like a soothing reminder
Of who you were

And you have always been
The kindest person I've ever known
You stood up for me
When no one would

So much I didn't say
I hope you can hear me now
So much I couldn't say until now
All the things that I miss
I long for your words of wisdom
I never dreamt it would hurt so much

All this time hasn't made it easier
I hope you know I will always love you
And all this time has made me miss you more
I hope you know you will never fade away

So much I didn't say
I hope you can hear me now
So much I couldn't say until now
All the things that I miss
I long for my childhood
I never dreamt it would be so cold

(c)1999 Scott-David Allen


Oblivion

Hey oblivion
I want to destroy it all
Hey oblivion
There's always something to take

Yeah, its only us
Its only us and we are everything

Hey oblivion
I want to fall for it all

Oh, oblivion
Oh, oblivion

Yeah, its only us
Its only us and we are everything
Yeah, its only you
Its only me and we are eternity

Oh, oblivion
Oh, oblivion
Oh, oblivion
Oh, oblivion

Oh, humanity
Its only us and we are everything
Oh, hypocrisy
Its only you and me for eternity
Ha, its only me
And I am king of all I see

(c)2016 Scott-David Allen


On Any Night But Tonight

Another January Day
And the world just fades away
Into the edges and the fray

Another February's grey
And there's nothing left to say
The words just melt away

And when you smile, I won't care
And when you cry, I won't care
And when you die, I won't care
On any night but tonight

Whether you stay or go, I'll lose my mind
I'll crawl inside eternity
Whether you stay or go, I'll leave behind
The dreams I was never meant to dream
Whether you stay or go, I'll close my eyes
And pretend this isn't happening
Whether you stay or go, I'll cut the ties
That keep my heart from leaving me

When things go wrong
The wire begins to sway
My wretched heart
Gets in the way
With empty hands
And an empty heart
You made your choice
To drift apart...Drift apart...Drift apart

And when you smile, I won't care
And when you cry, I won't care
And when you die, I won't care
On any night but tonight

Whether you stay or go, I'll lose my mind
I'll crawl inside eternity
Whether you stay or go, I'll leave behind
The dreams I was never meant to dream
Whether you stay or go, I'll close my eyes
And pretend this isn't happening
Whether you stay or go, I'll cut the ties
That keep my heart from leaving me

Whether you stay or go, I'll lose my mind
I'll crawl inside eternity
Whether you stay or go, I'll leave behind
The dreams I was never meant to dream
Whether you stay or go, I'll close my eyes
And pretend this isn't happening
Whether you stay or go, I'll cut the ties
That keep my heart from leaving me

(c)2014 Scott-David Allen


Only A Priest

There's no bread
And there's no wine
I'll hear your confession
If you'll hear mine

We live lives
That we make
I'll be your angel
If my wings don't break

Yeah, there's really nothing left to say
Cause if you don't need me and you don't need me
I'm nothing
Yeah, it doesn't matter anyway
Cause if you won't see me and you won't see me
I'm nothing

Falling down, out from Heaven
Crawling up, out from Hell
Hold me up, I'm the son of angels
Hold me down, maybe I don't care
Held sacred
Then thrown away
I will bleed for you
As I pray

Dressed in white
And dragged through the mud
I'll be your body
And your blood

(c)2004 Scott-David Allen


Porcelain

I'm standing at the edge of the world
And screaming out your name
You're standing on the other side
And doing much the same

I can feel you pulling me
No matter where you are
I can tell you're frightened of
The things you think you are

Anything you want
You know I'll do
All the thing you put me through
And when the start
Is like the end
We've gone in circles

You're so needy, lure me in
I'm so easy, I give in
You're the needle, piercing my vein
I'm so fragile, like porcelain

And I can see you're only running
From the tears and pain
And under the circumstances
I would do the same

I can fell you hanging on
To all the lives you've led
I can tell you're struggling
With the thoughts inside your head

Anything I want
I know you'll do
All the things I put you through
And when the start
Is like the end
We've gone in circles

I'm so needy, lure you in
You're so easy, you give in
I'm the needle, piercing your vein
You're so fragile, like porcelain

It's all part of my flawed design
It's everything in shades of black and white
It's all part of a thin grey line
It's everything that you thought was right

(c)2014 Scott-David Allen


Purgatory

I am the god of emptiness
I am the god of pain
I am the god of agony
God of the insane

Will you look into my soul
And tell me what you find
Tell me this emptiness
Is just a state of mind

I am the keeper of fear
I am the keeper of fate
I am the keeper of nothing
The keeper of all hate

Will you hide me away
And help my wounds to heal
Wrap your arms around me
And teach me how to fell

And I don't want your forgiveness
I don't want your blame
I don't want forever
I don't want to be the same

I wish I knew what it was that you were
Searching for this time
I think I know what it is that you've been
Missing all this time

Tell me I brought it on myself
All of this decay
Tell me that god will always love me
And can wash it all away
Tell me that you know how I feel
And it makes you love me more
Tell me that you understand me
And you've seen it all before

(c)1999 Scott-David Allen


Resurrection

Always the silent one
The horrors that she's seen
Always the safest way
He's frightened of how he'll seem

Hand to god, I know you're there
Hands in the air

Always the aching heart
She knows just who she'll be

Hand to god, I see you there
Hands in the air

Come on out and say all the things
All the things you couldn't say

Hand to god I want you here
Hands by your side

Come on out and try all the things
All the things you couldn't try
Come on out and be everything
Everything you couldn't be

(c)2016 Scott-David Allen


Saline & Bitter

An echo in a see of fear
Filled with blood but the water's clear
Like saline in a tear
A lonely face in an empty crowd
I've felt the bitter cold
It takes hold and won't let go
I've felt the bitter cold

You let yourself down You'll turn yourself around

I don't know what's going on
But it's strange hear
Sometimes I feel
Like I don't belong
There's nothing worse
Than being ordinary
But next time
That won't get in my way

It's lonely inside your heart
The way the wind whispers in tongues
Afraid to play your part
And if you had wings you'd fly away
I know it hurts out there
And that the world will never care
I know it hurts out there

(c)2004 Scott-David Allen


Sanctuary

I'm a savior
To just a few, I'm everything
I'm a danger
To the rest of you, I'm degrading
And when I can't be
Everything to everyone
I'm just another voice
Fading out before it's begun

Oh,no, here we go
The ebb and flow
Drag me down like undertow

I never wanted to be your priest, you king, your new martyr
Here the raindrops fall like tears on the panes of glass at our feet
Crashing down until they block the sound of my heartbeat
A million voices in the night, we're on our knees praying for

Sanctuary
The angels weep tonight
Sanctuary
The angels weep tonight

I'm an angel
Waiting to be eaten alive
I'm a devil
Waiting to be exorcised

Oh,no, here we go
The ebb and flow
Drag me down like undertow

I never wanted to be your priest, you king, your new martyr
Here the raindrops fall like tears on the panes of glass at our feet
Crashing down until they block the sound of my heartbeat
A million voices in the night, we're on our knees praying for

Sanctuary
The angels weep tonight
Sanctuary
The angels weep tonight

I wanna see you grasping
I wanna hear you gasping
I wanna see you trying
I wanna hear you crying

(c)2014 Scott-David Allen


Serafina

Serafina stares at the stars
And says her prayers
In awe of what she sees
I could never see the things she sees

And she's always far away
In some other place
She likes to make believe
I can't stand to see her in such pain

Even when the world is pushing down
She stands so tall she can almost touch the clouds

Serafina's slipping away
And it's all okay
She knows she's got faith to guide her way
Serafina's gone to sleep
And I don't know what to say
I try to speak but it's already much too late

And she knows she's lost it all
But you can't tell
She loves every day
I can't see the use in living that way

And she says I've gone astray
She prays for me
She says that she believes
I don't need to believe the things she believes

I will never sleep again
I will never dream again

(c)2004 Scott-David Allen


Shadows

I'll be the moon and the seas
I'll be your secret disease
I'll be the sun and the sands
I'll be your unmet demands

I'll be the one who to take you
By the hand and lead
I'll be the one who watches
Over while you sleep

And your dreams, they slip away
But its different this time
And you need to break away
But its harder now and

I want to be the only one (like a memory in an empty room)
I'll be the shadows in your eyes

I'll be the one who's waiting
Just around the bend
I'll be the one who drives you
Away in the end

And your dreams, they slip away
But its different this time
And you need to break away
But its buried within your mind

And your dreams, they slip away
But its different this time
And you need to break the chains
But they're locked away inside

And your dreams, they slip away
But its different this time
And you need to break away
But its harder now and

I may be the end of you

(c)2016 Scott-David Allen


Shell Of A Saint

Here I am the one that you adore
You give it all and more
But I'm to wrapped up in myself
Here I am the one you love to hate
Whatever you give I'll take
And push aside what gets in my way

It seems I'm always
Looking in from the outside
I try to keep it straight
But I feel it falling apart
It seems I'm always
Look out from the inside
I try to hold on tight
But I feel it slipping away

Here I am an empty man no pride
Eyes opened wide
Ashamed of the things that I've become
Here I am a shell of a saint that right
I'd try for more but why
I'd just end up with the same mistakes

It seems I'm always
Looking in from the outside
I try to keep it straight
But I feel it falling apart
It seems I'm always
Look out from the inside
I try to hold on tight
But I feel it slipping away

It seems I spend my time
Looking at the wrong side
I see it in my head
And I want to tear it away
It seems there is no way
To get to the upside
I've given what I can
And I feel I'm dragging you down

I am the one that left you there with nothing
I am the one that took it all away
I am the one that left you standing broken
I am the one that stole your dreams away
I am the one that left you feeling empty
I am the one that handed you the blame
I am the one that took it all for granted
I am the one that threw it all way

Things keep getting in the way

It should have been someone else

State Of Mind

It's in the air
Tonight I feel the end
I've said goodbye
To all my useless friends

In your world
It all seems so sublime
The second hand
Ticks faster every time

And honestly, I think your wrong
I don't need you or anyone
To tell me it's okay

I can feel the storm rush in
And I want to let it all go
Tonight I've lost myself
Float away and lose my hold
It's only a state of mind
Tonight I've found myself

And I'm not asking
You to change your mind
Or hide away
Behind a wall of lies

And I know
Tomorrow will be the same
But to tell the truth
I think I've lost my way

And honestly, I don't know why
But it has to be this way
And I don't see the point

Giving in and letting go
I want to disappear
Tonight I've lost myself

Float away and lose my hold
It's only a state of mind
Tonight I've found myself
And honestly, I can't complain
Maybe we'd be better gone
Just give it all away

Tears & Roses

You live alone
In your little corner of this lost world
I remember your name
Though I doubt you remember mine
We watched the sky shed its color
From blue to black
I remember the deafening roar
Of the wind through the trees

Your powder white face
And black lined sunken eyes
Remind me of the days
When we laughed for hours
My hand in yours
As the lightning lit an empty sky
My hand in yours

Your powder white face
And black lined sunken eyes
Remind me of the days
When we laughed for hours
My hand in yours
As the lightning lit an empty sky
Empty promises forgotten dreams and tears

The afternoon shadows stretch
Through your bedroom window sill
And down the hall
To the room where I sleep each night
Waiting alone
In silence for you to return
Waiting alone

The afternoon shadows stretch
Through your bedroom window sill
And down the hall
To the room where I sleep each night
Waiting alone
In silence for you to return
Hidden fears false comfort and tears

I stand in the corner of your room
As you walk away
Down the same hall
To the room that was never mine
The tears fall as the roses wilt away
Wilt away with tears

This Decay

Someday, my time will come
You can drag me away From this decay
And I'll follow you

Alone, but not afraid
I'll hide away From every day
Just to see the night

And when the lid is put down tight
I'll drive the nail in one more time
I'll go to any length
To say someday

And when the world shuts its eyes
Something inside me comes alive
I live to see the look inside your eyes
And when the music starts to play
I'll drift away and escape
I loath the stupid things that you say

Unseen, but not at home
I've seen it all before
And it makes me sick
On time, and right on cue
They'll stand in line for miles
Just to see you smile

And when the evening becomes night
I'll take it all as sacrifice
I'll go to any length
To say someday

And when the crowd begins to sway
The deadly hunter sees its prey
The feel of fragile souls in my hands
And when the night is complete
The lonely souls begin to weep
The pools of crimson filling in your eyes

Take me away from this decay

(c)2004 Scott-David Allen


Transparent

An angel's smile
A devil's soul
I hear your words
But they always sound so hollow

I slip on tears
From things you've said
I block them out
But they're always in my head

I see your face
And I hear your voice
It rings out
But I'm always standing here alone

And I would give anything
To be adored in your eyes

I see right through
Your empty lies
The helplessness
We all hide inside

And I would give anything
To be adored in your eyes
I would give anything
to be adored in God's eyes

(c)1998 Scott-David Allen


Waiting

Everything I've ever seen in you
Is every dream I've had come true
Every single time I let you down
You're left in pieces on the ground

Let me pick you up and take you home
We may be apart but you're never alone
All this time I thought you'd known
All the things I thought I'd shown

And all the things I've said and done
I am better than that, you'll see
And when your world turns to dust
I'll be anything you need
And on the day I take my last breath
You'll mean everything to me
And if the world leaves you behind
I'll be waiting here for you

I'll do everything I can
To be more than I ever have

Let me pick you up and take you home
We may be apart but you're never alone
All this time I thought you'd known
All the things I thought I'd shown

And all the things I've said and done
I am better than that, you'll see
And when your world turns to dust
I'll be anything you need
And on the day I take my last breath
You'll mean everything to me
And if the world leaves you behind
I'll be waiting here for you
