FIRST SONG POSTED!!! MAGICAL SKILLS!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For a while i wanted naught but you
my heart was breaking inside
But we never would have made it
Everybody knows that
Juliet had to die

So close and yet so far away
the distance a short few miles
our love it was defeated
remember this please now, love;
never to meet again

[chorus]
You were all that i wanted
all i needed was you
my tears inside the dark
miss me through the distance
call me when you get home
love me less please oh please
please don't abandon me

Kiss me in the darkness
a huge mistake?
but love is always true
i didn't mean to
i only would have ruined
all i had with you

so close and yet so far away
the world divides us still
a dirty greenish monster
watching two hearts closely
somewhere between you two

[chorus]

our love divided, cut in two
your love for me runs deeper
i cant except my peace of mind
while what slope is growing steeper

i don't deserve you
i never will
i don't know why you bother
my passions somewhere hidden
safe inside a cold dark cave
but the question is, is it really for you?

and still i lie in a tug-of-war
waiting to decide
someone must pull harder
this ditch is growing deeper
will i make it out alive?

[chorus]

still the pain lies close inside of me
but where now can i turn?
parents never listen
my friends, they are the problem
can God tell me whom to choose

will i ever truly mean it?
just three simple words?
i can not.
or will not?
give away

and me, i see less clearly now
than ever i had before

[chorus]

does God have his glasses
they're not for me, i see
so thus is it not for me tho know?

so i go and i will wait
i'll wait forever for my perfect mate
hes maybe not any of you
but if i had to choose, this moment here
i know i would choose you

[chorus]

because , love, love you i do

Default My Religion

3 days ago one of my friends reawakened my Christianity, and scene then i have been reading the bible, praying, and coincidentally writing songs about my renewed faith.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Religion

To go out of your way to resist temptation
Following you into a new life
giving the one i have right now to Jesus

But i cant see you clearly even now i know
Satan seems the one who's in control

To love God with all my heart and all my soul it seems
Cannot be done so feasibly by me

And where now can i go?
Will i be doomed to never know
the peace and love that only you can bring to me?

The prodigal son runs away from home to live a sinful life
If i should be so lucky to return to God

And what now can i do?
So i will sit and pray to you
And pray that you will never let me die

The sheep that wonders far away
so easily be led astray
your love is strong enough to hold me here i pray

The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
hold me in your light
help me be the best that i can be

And i will turn to you
And all that you can do
'cause you can heal the blind man so he'll
see and be

Please, Lord be the one who can save me
Help me see

Default Unworthy Forever

She lies beside me all the time
and what can i do?
keeping me awake
all the time

when sanity balances on the edge of a dime
if i could flip a coin and see who
and yet there's far too much at stake
and i don't have the dime or the time

[chorus]
But late last night and the night before
the world is changing in a minute
i dont see how she still sees me
Unworthy forever of who?
Unworthy forever of you

She sits beside me in the dark
do i really see her clearly
the sadness in her dark brow eyes
they're looking through the dark

and they see me
or so i've heard

I run beside her in the park
i think i see her clearly
the blueness in September skies
the images fly past my eyes

the voice of people in the world
are singing in the sun
the faces of this big bad world
are cryin' and dyin' and
leaving us all alone

[chorus]

she stands behind me out of depth
and Earth it shall keep spinning
the strong will still keep winning
my head will keep spinning

while evil never changes
the good goes flashing by
the dark and light forever hide
in different shades of gray

our survival hinges on small things
we may say goodbye
life forever changes like the tide
but some of it must stay

stuck on a reef or in the bay

do i want this shade of gray?
is it a fraction too dark or light?

Please drop my hand and say goodbye
its better for us all
If love's a pool im drowning
and yet it seems im always frowning

[chorus]

If i cant deal with **** today
a ****ty life is how i'll stay
Unworthy together forever
Unworthy forever together

[chorus]

Unworthy forever together

Default Please dont abandon me

For a while I wanted nothing but you
My heart was breaking inside of me
We never would have made it
Everybody knows that
Juliet had to die

So close and an yet so far away
The distance a short few miles
But no one I knew could know
Never now to meet again

[chorus]
You were all that I wanted
All i needed was you
My tears all through the dark
Miss me through the distance
Call me when you get home
Love me less but please oh please
Please don't abandon me

Kiss me in the darkness
Your huge mistake?
Is our love really true love?
I didn't mean to end it
I only would have ruined
All i had with you

So close and yet so far away
The world divides us still
Looking at him with you now
What can we do now
When we're hiding our lives from them?

[chorus]

And the jealousy astounds me
The Green and angry hate and fear
A fear that i wont have you near to me

'Cause or love now divided cut in two
Your love for me runs deeper
I cannot accept my peace of mind
When this slope's still growing steeper

If i don't deserve you i never will
Is this way foolish or is it wiser
to hide this in
the corner of
the closet still

But I don't know why we try
My passion is somewhere hiding
cant be found by me or found by you
it would seem right now

So my question is
Is it really meant for anyone
or you?

[chorus]

Still the pain lies close inside of me
And where now can i turn?
to all the empty people all the guys or girls
The world don't understand
So God please tell me who to choose

Will I ever really mean it?
Just three simple sylables
Making up the sentence of our lives?

I will not, can not give away
The truth inside of me
But me, I see less clearly now thn i did before
Still I still want more to love

[chorus]

Does God have his glasses?
Or is it not for me to see
True love until the time i comprehend?

But if he made me choose right now
Forever to be left with her
Is that Hell or Heaven
Or somewhere in between?
I can't decide right now

[chorus]

Because out of all of you
out in this world
Loving's what I'll do
So maybe I'll love you

Default Agony

Im thinking this up on the spot if it sucks i apologize but I've got to write it right now
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Agony
its gonna take away the best of me
Throw me away
No knife across my wrist
just plain old pain i know Your

Beautiful
i saw the day i met you i would
fall for you
But maybe not today

I see it clearly now
Don't want what i can have
I see it clearly now
what stands in front of me

So what can i do?
to make myself feel thankful for your
love but i turn away
Turn away to my dark place
abandoning the ones who love me

But who can love someone like me?

Agony
its rippin appart me
Leaving chills across my spine
Throwing me into the pits of hell This

Jealousy
why does it still exist?
i see your name possessive and
insane i am

Please take me away
to a land of goodness land of grace
save me from the demons that i see
save me from the darkness in my eyes

Agony
i know that she will comfort me
i don't deserve
that he will do so too My

Therapy
am i disturbed or just insane
just tell me now
the anger, death, and lust will stay but

Agony is able to decide
Agony is able to decide
Agony is able to decide that im not worth it anymore
Broken beyond reason beyond pain

She loves me still
and yet he
Loves me still
but i hate myself still
So where can i now turn?

Lucifer please stand aside
Don't let the demons still reside
I cant take it anymore
Drown the flesh in water so the devils finally die

Save me from myself
Savior of the world and all who still reside
Save me from myself your healing hands can do it all
Just save me from myself

Agony
stay the hell away from me
Let the drugs the knife, the drinks still come
Leave me to my pain and all the lousy side effects it
takes to free myself from
the clutches of the world of Satan

Agony
i cannot embrace it freely
Save me from the hell it brings
Death is life and life is death
Save me from the pain it brings
taking me away

Taking me away, you can
save me from the pain it brings
save me from the death it brings
save me from the Agony
your saving cup can do it all I've heard

Agony is able to decide
Agony is able to decide
Agony is able to decide that I'm not worth it anymore
Broken beyond reason beyond pain

It's overly too long, you probably could paraphrase a lot of what you said into better constructed stanzas, but I could see the lyrics building up in one of those 8 minute songs that layer and layer to a crescendo finale.

Default Mother Nature Turn Away

The snow keeps falling
Falling through the streets through the night
Covers up the stains and slush
Upon this face

In the morning it is gone
the cars and people, me and you
looking at this world its
never really changing

[chorus]
Mother Nature turn away
the people ruining your world
The smog and shadows
in the city
Looking through the looking glass
See yourself right now
Reflections deep despairing
Its Hell on Earth
Is Heaven in the sky?

Abandoning this life I've here
Abandoning the world into its doom
These shallow faces
Hypocrites of the world

Ugly shades of brown and black
Covered temporarily by white
Forever, never change at all
at all in truth

[chorus]

Veracity can change it all
Don't fool yourself to thinking
That its OK, cause
Misery will not forget

This Misery will still love company
Just stop yourself from thinking
That its OK, cause
Misery will not forgive you

[chorus]

So when my time does come
I will not look back
Go down or up
Anywhere but here

Or maybe somewhere in between
Some shade of gray, not brown, not black, not white

Somewhere Mother Nature creates for me
Or for us all
Do I believe what I say?
Or is it all just lies?

Follow me and see
Or rather. . .Don't

Don't come where i am going
And sure as Hell don't go where i am leaving
Stay right where you are in all
your simple adequacy

And stay away from this world
And me

[chorus]
