Foolish

For T.C.

No more regrets,
Melancholy always forgets
What it’s to live, what it’s to give,
So if you want to be my dawn,
Then I believe whatever will be will be,
So set me free so I can be as a bluebird
Flying in this garden – not alone
For I can see it’s my destiny
To enjoy as much as I suffer
The sin of the link between you and me…

This connection, recollection
Of everything that we have been
Through hells and illusions,
Through desperation
Through heaven lost
Through confusion !

I’m so foolish I want you still
So lie to me, tell me you love me,
I don’t care if it’s untrue,
Just as long as I have you,
To protect me, I’ll let it be
For I’m too weak to die just yet !

If we are in prison,
It’s as real as a deadly illusion,
If we are in prison,
We’re as alive as this poor confusion !

And days go by like barbed wire,
And I can’t stand the midnight choir,
Every time we dance on fire,
You just want to take me higher…

And if we are in prison,
I guess this is a golden cage,
And if we are in prison,
I only have to calm my rage !

For it’s a sin to stay awake
When everyone sleeps in one’s bed,
Although we still have love to make,
Even to watch the walking dead.

Mercy exists as much as love

Uncertainty might drive me crazy,
And I might also push up the daisies,
But what I need is at the top of these stairs,
So now I’m trying to be the one who cares.

Let there be light again !
Let’s free all the haunted !
Let there be love again,
Even if we’re rejected !

And I might bleed for the wounds I inflicted,
And I might seek unknown pleasures again,
But I’ll see the dawn rise away from the pain,
Wicked the sin, magnifiscent the refrain !

Let there be light again !
Let’s free all the haunted !
Let there be love again,
Even if we’re rejected !

Noone understands when that spark lightens the rain,
Noone knows when truth hits you right in the face,
But as sure as I will have to take that plane,
I’m sure there will be ripples on the surface !

Let there be light again !
Let’s free all the haunted !
Let there be love again,
Even if we’re rejected !

Flowers will grow in my garden in the Spring,
And it will show beautiful colours singing
The power of the Gospel that’ll leave me speechless,
For I’ve written some poems which were so worthless…

Let there be light again !
Let’s free all the haunted !
Let there be love again,
Even if I’m rejected !
Even if I’m rejected !
