Control.Even without teeth we'll find ways to biteSoak up our water; we'll burn you aliveReligionless minds find hate to praiseAnd God-loving men have a Father to blamePut out our fire; you'll smother to deathBurn out our feathers and we'll crush your chestAbolish disease and cancer of the brainSomeone will find a way to kill you againYou say put up your hands and I say neverMake excuses, excusesAnd we'll never get better
Love Through All SeasonsIn Spring he swore hed pick her flowersTo make her smile each time she smelt them.He swore theyd lie in fields of tall grassAnd watch as the blossom grew on the trees.In Summer he swore hed sit with her in theWarm evenings and theyd watch the sunset.He swore hed tell her how stunningShe looked when the sun caressed her face.In Autumn he swore hed hold her handWhilst they walked in the golden landscape.He swore theyd laugh and smile togetherAs they jumped through the fallen leaves.In Winter he swore hed hold her tightAnd keep her safe when the storms strike.He swore hed keep her warm at nightThrough the snow and the rain and the cold.He swore all this for the rest of his life,And he meant it.
Never Darkyou say light is useless withoutdarkness by its side, and youintroduce me to your fearsbut i say what do you knowwhen have you ever tried tolet go of the shadowsI will light our wayWith fireflies and hummingbirdsAnd lead you throughTo plant our dreams in a new day [whether you want it or not]If you just let meI will teach you how to befriend the fire spritesSo don't close you eyesLook at the stars for the first time. [even the darkest night has light]
Your Eyes.When I look into your eyes,That clear haze of greeny-blue,I see myself as wanted,The me I never knew;The me that is herself,Nothing less and nothing more,The me reflected in your eyesThat see right to my core.They see the me that no one knows,The me I always hide.But your eyes see through these walls,To the real me, deep inside.I did once try to conceal myselfFrom your eyes that see so true.No matter how hard I tried,Your eyes, they saw right through.Yet in your eyes, Im perfect,Im all you want and need.You say these things, look with those eyes:You make me feel complete.Seeing to my inner soul,Seeing to my heart,Your eyes gaze embraces mineAs you swear well never part.When you look at me with those eyesIm not embarrassed or ashamed,I remember once, you looked at meAnd I knew Id never be the same.Now when you capture me with your eyes,Those eyes of greeny-blue,Your eyes are the only eyes that seeThe way that I love you.
Some Old Man I Really Hate.Father (Is that what I should call you?),This isn't about why you hate me. I know exactly why.We all know how much you wanted a girl. You got one physically that is.We all know what you really wanted.You didn't just want a girl You wanted a perfect girl. A girl, your idea of perfect.I wasn't meant to play with boys.I wasn't meant to like sport, or to climb trees, or get in the mud.I wasn't meant to ask you why boys can only like girls, and girls can only like boys.I definitely wasn't meant to tell you that I was different.I wasn't meant to read or write or wonder.I wasn't meant to pay more attention to teachers than to doing my hair.I wasn't meant to question things, or find your flaws.I wasn't meant to think.And God knows I've been deprived.I was meant to want dolls, and dresses, and toy cooking sets.I was meant to dress my Barbies, style their hair, apply their make-up.They were meant to swoon over Ken.Three Ken's for twenty Barbies. That's how it works
