Chapter 1 again

When I come home at night tired and strung out from my day...I check the phone...I drop my key's and my pocket change...Right onto the table...That sits to the left in my entry way...Right under the picture of you and I in our summer place...I know I should take it down it's...Just so hard to change...When I know that the memory of you and I will never fade away...Yes it's hard to say it...Even harder to face it...The prince of alone...I am the prince of alone...I call myself the prince...For I have met the king of pain...He spoke of his mistakes in love...Though I did not learn thing...Yes you were my princess and I had hoped to rule one day...But I fell to the life of a jester...And like the fool I let you get away...Yes it's hard to face it...Even harder to say it...The prince of alone...I am...The prince of alone, ah...I call myself the prince...For I have met the king of pain...He told me love was a mistake...Still I try and I try again...Yes you were my princess and I was gonnna be king one day...But I fell to the life of a jester...And like a fool I let you get away...Yes it's hard to face it...Even harder to say it...The prince of alone...I am...Yes I am...The prince of alone..../....


One of my biggest fears...Is to grow old and still be lonely...I would see it manifest daily...In that old man...Feeding those pigeon's from that park bench...Once he really drove it home...I had lost my job I was at the mission...And there he was bumming cigarettes from the young...Who would laugh and turn away...I didn't even have one for myself...But I got one from someone else...An I gave it to him my...Good deed for the day...Good deed for the day...But still I still I,still I...Had no words to say...Won't someone please tell me...Tell me...Why does it have to be...It doesn't have to be...Why does it have to be...When this doesn't have to be...Not me,no...Like the birth of winter...The touch of a springtime rain...The endless nights of summer...The sight of all the colors...It's fall again...So the years continue...The memories remain...But when you look back over your shoulder at the past...Riddle me this...Why is it love can become pain...Won't someone please tell me...Tell me...Why does it have to be...this doesn't have to be...Why does it have to ...when it doesn't have to be...Not me no...I guess I'll have to wait and see..../....

All our lives...We go on in search of something...Wandering...climbing the hills of fate...We all need someone...To come long beside us...To take our hand...To look us in the eye's...To carry us away...Carry...Carry me away...Won't you carry me...Carry me away...You found me...Drifting upon the shore...I had given up in believing...That I could ever be...Ever be anything more than what I was...It wasn't much...But I was struggling on...I was still searching for that someone...To come and take my hand...To take my hand and ...Carry me,carry me...Carry me away...Won't you carry me away...I don't want to be an old man...Wishing for things I've never done...I don't want to regret...All the times I've run...All the things that I've kept hidden inside of me...The things that I just would have loved to let come out...I never really let it go...I never stood up and shouted at the top of my voice...What I had on my mind at the time...I was just one of those...Who would stand there in line...Yet deep inside...I still wished...For that someone...To find me...To take my hand...To take my hand and carry me,carry me,carry...Carry me away...Won't you carry me...Carry me away


I was walking to work this morning with the sunrise...you running through my mind...Sleep still in my eye's...The morning sky looked like a burning sunset...I could not stop thinking of you and I know that I'll never forget...The way you...Changed my life...You changed my sight...You changed the way...I looked at my life...You changed me...I was walking to lunch at one with a good friend...He was telling me...How he and his girl were fighting again...I could tell deep down inside he really cared for her...He said he couldn't wait to get home...Make up and start loving again...He said she...Changed his life...She changed his sight..she changed the way...He looked at his life...It's a change thing...I was walking home last night with the moon-rise...You still running through my mind...Starlight in my eye's...The night sky was full of stars...Thick like carpet...I will not stop thinking of you and I know...I will never forget...The way you...Changed my life...You changed my sight...You changed the way...I looked at the night...You changed me..../....


Lady fate wears a dress of irony...She puts a smile on the face of old man time...You can find them dancing hand in hand to the songs of destiny...It is the mistress love they to often leave behind...Myself, I believe I can change their ways. I am so done with being just a pawn...In their games of the mind...You see I have a secret the jester once gave to me...If you can make the woman smile...You can win her heart, every time!...The mistress love came walking down the street today...I could tell by her stride she'd been hitting the wine...So I stepped up and I asked her to drink with me...She looked me in the eye's...She smiled slowly...Thus she replied...Sir, I don't even know your name...What makes you think I share a flask with a rouge such as you...It was then I recalled the secret the jester had given to me...So I said... Dear lady we both know drinking wine is for two...Now I know yes I know...I have changed their ways...Fate, destiny and old man time had to watch from the side...The mistress and I...We drank wine all that day...Then that night...that's right...Lady love was mine...I her's...Life divine..../....


I have lived a 1000 lives.......I have told a 1000 lies......I have died a 1000 times...Dancing with the dark of the night...Yet the anticipation I feel flow through me each morning...Is tremendous !...Knowing now....I live my last life...To breath that final sigh..To then know why..Embracing the soul's of all...As I burst into light...The words to describe the beauty I behold...Of this final rite... Escape me...If they even are at all...I will always cherish the sun...Her everlasting flight...Blessing her sister the earth...Scoring the heavens...Bane of the night...Gifting shadows to us all...Who dare live in the light..../....


I have not denied myself one bit...My thirst great...My hunger deep...Grasping all my eye's can see...My castles filled with dark desire...Yet locked away down in the keep...My shame aglow ablaze afire...Shall I never be free of this fist like grip...Loves cup I spill never to sip...Just once to drink deep of the virgin morning's sun...To walk the crisp green fields hand in hand with the one...Mind clear of past folly...Eye's open to each new sight...Welcome the day embrace the night...arm in arm to starlight...May it be love is this...as simple as a touch a smile a kiss...The promise of that look the unspoken so clear...Let me proclaim to you all the lessons of my heart...Without fear....I know love...Oh I know love...I have held love...I have walked with love...I have tasted love...I have betrayed love...Though I do not believe love... Comes only once in a lifetime...It's just that so few of us can see love...When it looks us in the eye's each day..../....
