Maya Hanson (mye3)


Can't Say A Thing


I don’t know how you deal with it
pretending every day
All at once keeping truths hidden
and letting them loose

Oh la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la

And I can’t
Say a thing
Your finger traces
Along my eyes

Oh la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la

I just can’t
Tell you to stop
It’s not worth it
to try to hide

Oh la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la

Life is just all
One big disguise
A cloak, maybe
Made out of what I’m hiding…

Oh la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la

I just can’t
Say a thing
Your finger traces
Along my eyes

Oh la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la

    In my head this poem is VERY melodic...I read back over it without singing it and it seems so average and boring. You have to hear the melody to get the full image: ( (Report) Reply

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
