In the End

In the End  ©Laforge/Randall

 

The early morning comes to ask

If I have finally made up my mind

I used to take her sweet hand in mine

But lately, I don’t know what’s happened to me

 

These nights are too long

I’m a lion who has turned into stone

 

No more wars to be won

 

Time erases what you just can’t keep

So lay me down, I just want to sleep

These wheels I have are sunk in deep

Just turn around, let me be

 

I am one of the strangers here

Who can no longer speak

The words that loved me once, have taken their leave

Is this some punishment I half believe

 

These nights are too long

I’m the king who surrenders his throne

 

No more wars to be won

 

Time erases what you just can’t keep

Lay me down I just want to sleep

These wheels I have are sunk in deep

Just turn around, let me be

 

Movement has given up, broken by the tremor at rest

My heart still beats, my eyes still weep, so please don’t bury me yet

What ever happened to larger than life?

Hand me a shield so I can finish this quest

 

These nights are too long

I’m the road that has come to an end

 

No more wars to be won

 

Time erases what you just can’t keep

Lay me down I just want to sleep

These wheels I have are sunk in deep

Just turn around, let me be
