The Unsettling Silence

He enters the room.
He says little or nothing.
His smile seems fake — always.
I often wonder what he’s thinking.
He may just be a man of little words
Or simply a man who is slow to trust.
Either way,  his silence is unsettling.

Drunk on the Moon 

(1st Verse)
You use to cut me with your sharp tongue,
You use to blind me with your fears that were brighter than the sun.
You use to shake the roots in our ground,
You use to scream and somehow you were no where to be found.
Our walls started to crumble from the darkest skies…
I could hear it, somehow I didn’t fear it,
Don’t worry I didn’t mind hearing you say goodbye.

Chorus:
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
Wishing you couldn’t see my scars.
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
Not far from the spinning star.
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
So happy to be on the other side.
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
Someone else has finally made me feel alive.

(2nd Verse)
You use to say the cruelest words,
You use to laugh when you knew it hurt.
You use to run to the hills as my colors fade,
You use to dance on my rainbow in my parade.
Our walls started to cave from the wind of the storm,
I could see it, I do believe it,
Don’t worry I didn’t mind you walking out the door.

Chorus:
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
Wishing you couldn’t see my scars.
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
Not far from the spinning star.
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
So happy to be on the other side.
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
Someone else has finally made me feel alive.

Bridge:
I didn’t mind feeling your thorn,
I didn’t mind a part of me was torn.
I had to meet you to get where I am now.
I didn’t mind walking on this broken road,
I didn’t mind finding the depths of my soul.
I had to meet you to get where I am now.

Chorus:
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
Wishing you couldn’t see my scars.
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
Not far from the spinning star.
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
So happy to be on the other side.
I’ve been drunk on the moon,
Someone else has finally made me feel alive.

Pieces of Me 


(1st Verse)
I use to cradle the magic in your eyes,
I use to sing to your majestic wings.
I use to love your bitten sarcasm,
I use to appreciate all the little things.
But there is no use to pretend,
This is the beginning of the end.

Chorus:
I couldn’t believe you didn’t see it coming miles away,
I couldn’t believe you didn’t see the colors fade.
I still can’t believe, that you refuse to see.
I still can’t believe, you took pieces of me.

(2nd Verse)
I use to fear the moment of truth,
I use to stare into the darkest cold sky.
I use to be afraid of the painted tears,
I use to know what I really felt inside.
But there is no use to pretend,
This is the beginning of the end.

Chorus:
I couldn’t believe you didn’t see it coming miles away,
I couldn’t believe you didn’t see the colors fade.
I still can’t believe, that you refuse to see.
I still can’t believe, you took pieces of me.

(3rd Verse)
I use to be numb to the vicious cut,
I use to run into the lion’s roar.
I use to scream to the silence,
I use to be the one who kept score.
But there is no use to pretend,
This is the beginning of the end.

Chorus:
I couldn’t believe you didn’t see it coming miles away,
I couldn’t believe you didn’t see the colors fade.
I still can’t believe, that you refuse to see.
I still can’t believe, you took pieces of me.

Bridge:
You took the turn before I could see the road,
You took the wheel while I was in control.
You took the words from the previous page,
You took the lights from the center stage.
You took the pictures from the gold frames,
You took the hope and all that remained.

Chorus:
I couldn’t believe you didn’t see it coming miles away,
I couldn’t believe you didn’t see the colors fade.
I still can’t believe, that you refuse to see.
I still can’t believe, you took pieces of me.
