I like her poiint of view. Excuse me if I 'm not synical enough for ya'll

To Die For


At last I lay here safe and sound and free of tribulation
I took the route dispised by all, dispite their supplication
It was my life do give or take my one and only power
And now I lay here sure that I am in my final hour

I've seen the angels flying round I've heard their silent singing
Translucent, airy, yet profound the melody is ringing
Surely this is worth the price I've paid for all my lonely grieving
For there is no music half as sweet on this earth that I am leaving

If just one person really cared or needed me for living
I'd gladly stayed oh how I prayed for purpose or for giving
But emptiness has took it's toll and now as go dying
At least theres no-one who will waste a tear on me a crying

When I was young I used to dream of young men come a courting
We'ed walk through fields of flowers gayly laughing and cavorting
But dreams have led me to this place where dreams are all thats missing
To sleep to sleep and not to yearn for flowers or for kissing

But now whats this I'm sure I feel my lips upon anothers
So urgently now kissing me hot breath about to smother
Am I alive or have the heavenly angels come to take me
But surely they would gently lead and not attempt to shake me

I feel my eyes blink open and through the fog I'm seeing
A young mans face is smiling down he's happy that I'm breathing
I'm glad for once that I'm alive if only just for his sake
He's hugging me and warming me oh what lovely heartache

I've failed to leave this lonely place but now it's not so lonely
I've finally felt a warm embrace it was my one and only
Just one embrace can be so much to ring your hands and cry for
And feeling just that one sweet kiss more than enough to die for
