Where Have I Been?

 

There I was and I plunged right in

All self-righteous and full of sin

Not thinking twice about the mess I’d be in,

Now looking back on where I’ve been,

 

It’s a miracle and it’s a wonder

Overwhelmed by passion and plunder

Never thinking twice about such blunders

All the emotions that have torn me asunder,

 

As ruthless as the long impending night

No kisses left or being held tight

The ghostly illumination of moonlight

The only friend I have in sight,

 

You try to find where you belong

Even when it seems everything is wrong,

 

It all seemed right when I was such a fool

She was my love not just a tool

But scorn becomes a burning fuel

Death I become with no renewal,

 

It used to be so easy without a mess

Almost sinfully it seemed careless

Blood spilled out of selflessness

I was slain by my own seductress,

Children, don’t go down this road

The illusion will smite you five fold

Fleeting ecstasy for agony untold

Footprints of the monster now foretold,

 

You try to find where you belong

Even when it seems everything is wrong,

 

It all seems such a simple song

Long before she came along

If only you’d been a little more strong

The attack on your heart so prolonged,

 

You try to find where you belong

Even when it seems everything is wrong.
