With The Book Of Rules

August turns to September’s matrimony
An ending that was made too soon
Walk across the floor to the center of the room
Back steps are impossible in time
Move forward
Take the hand of desire
Dance across the floor
Then walk out of the door
With your foolish pride tucked away in your back pocket
With the book of rules you hold so dear
A night that can’t end too soon
Staring at the moon
Wanting to bend what you made
The tears cascade
Push them aside
With your foolish pride tucked away in your back pocket
With the book of rules you hold so dear
September expires all hope with that beautiful smile
That used to look you in the eye
Now it stares in the other direction
Now it dances across the floor
And walks away
Leaving you to die alone
With your foolish pride tucked away in your back pocket
With the book of rules you hold so dear

Somebody Else

Sometimes I feel sad for no reason at all and I wonder
Is this my pain, or does it belong to somebody else?
I feel it so deeply
But at the same time
I know that it’s not a part of me
Why do I feel their blue?
I wish I knew

Sometimes I feel lonely with friends around and I know
This emptiness is not mine, it belongs to somebody else
I feel it inside me
But at the same time
I know it’s a separate entity
I received it, but from who?
I wish I knew

Sometimes I feel frightened when all is well and think
This is not my fear, I know it resides in somebody else
I feel it all around
But at the same time
I know to another it’s bound
Who does it belong to?
I wish I knew

Sometimes I feel like somebody else…
