From the recording NEW DAY
I can't breathe...can't sleep...can't believe how he's turned out to be. It is the catch 22 of love: when a lover, that has spent all of their energy convincing you that they are your forever love, leaves the moment you finally start to believe them.

I’ve bottled up inside me all day,
a river of angry tears that I refuse to taste.
Why should I let you win by showing you my pain;
A pain I’ve sheltered since you took your love away.
Please release me.
Let me scream over your selfish noise
and be angry. Please save my honor.
Turn away I can’t hold these tears any longer.
The sun, the moon, the stars, the sky,
have yet to see this angel cry;
I’ve hidden underground with silence all around.
How can you look at me like I’m the one to blame?
You had your chance before you put our love to shame.
I need to scream…I need to cry!
And, I must ask you why
oh why did you leave me to die?!
