Paper Love


Come unto me so slim
for i give you my heart
I seek you day and night
and slave for you with all my might

If i stuck you
Would you get stuck on me?
Do you abandon a soul for its intentions?
Or you rush to one's labours' pains

It’s been years and years
since i held you in my arms my dear
rage comes in between my tears
as i sit down and wonder
listening to the sad song in my ears
Maybe we are not meant to be together,
Or maybe you've gone from me forever?

I gave you more than sweat
I gave you love, i gave you me
The ultimate sacrifice i could give
But alas, promises you can't keep.
Now am torn and sick
Mending broken feathers of my hope
A hope barely hanging by a lope

Who sells souls to you?
For many call you the devil yet they walk with you.
I know you to be innocent, loving and caring
You raised every soul that walks the earth now
But why you don’t come my way i keep myself asking.

You took away my soul
And paid me with sorrow
I dared call you when I needed you the most.
But you made a fool of me
All my friends and adversaries rejoice that i lost
all the battles i fought in vain
all the work i laboured with pain
But i cover these scars with shame
And keep moving as if unwounded

Why are you so mean, paper slim?
Why does my labours your eyes not see?
Maybe blinded by light you don't even see
that tomorrow is always much beautiful than today is.
Paper thin, oh dear me, my only begotten!
Can i still count on you as i trod on?

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
