I am Winter

Standard

It’s winter again
The cold has rolled in
The frost has started and
The ice took my heart again.
I am frozen
I am cold
I can’t feel
I don’t see the point any more.
The snow is sticking now
It twinkles like fallen stars
But it melts at your touch
Because it was empty from the start.
I am hallow
Wind blows through me
I can’t feel
So I’m done pretending.
As dead as leafless trees
I stand with a slight desire within me
To live long enough for spring
When maybe I can begin blossoming
But as the night carries on
With no sign of day
I give up waiting for dawn
And just accept the gray.

 

Don’t Break My Heart

Standard

Can I trust you
If I give this to you
Will you keep it safe
Lock it away?
Can I believe you
Keep it in your care
Trust you’ll protect it
Keep it somewhere safe

I only want to ask you one thing
Can you promise me one thing?

{chorus}
Don’t break my heart
It’s a tattered little thing
It’s been broken before
And I just got it working again
So please be careful with me…

It’s been rained on
It’s been dried
It’s been shattered
And it’s been tied.
I usually keep it in a block of ice
But I’ll let you have it
Just please be kind

I only want to ask you one thing
Can you promise me one thing?

{chorus}
Don’t break my heart
It’s a tattered little thing
It’s been broken before
And I just got it working again
So please be careful with me…

I don’t really want to give it up
Unless I’m sure
You won’t take it and rip it apart
I’m sick of watching it bleed
But a band-aide just won’t do
Can I hand it over and expect you to…

{chorus}x2
Not break my heart
It’s a tattered little thing
It’s been broken before
And I just got it working again
So please be careful with me…

So please, don’t break my heart…

Burns Like Water

Standard

My love for you burns like water
Impossible but true
Your hands ignite the flame inside my chest cavity
A clear blue.
And it dances on a candle wick
Melting away the ice
That once encased my heart
Like a non-penetrable device.
Yet somehow you broke through
With the most precise slice.
Now the water dances on and on
Like a flame
Beautiful and pure
This love cannot be tamed.
Such a flame cannot be extinguished
Nor can it be contained
It will continue to burn on
Melting all the ice away.

Hot and Cold

Standard

All words have already been said
What more can I say to describe the way you get into my head?
You bring me to heaven
The moon
Then back again
To finish me off with the heat of your breath
On my tongue
Into my lungs
Keeping your eyes on mine
Your gaze is my kryptonite.
You’re hotter than the sun
My skin burns under your touch
But your eyes
Like cool rays of ice
You keep me hot and cold
Begging
Begging
Begging for more

Ice Queen

Standard

You’re right

I’m cold

I have a heart made of stone

So why is it that you love me?

So why is it that you stay?

Is it because you think you can melt the ice away?

Well you can’t

I’ve built up a wall

So tall

That you can’t even see

The other side where it’s me:

The Ice Queen.

Where I don’t feel pain

Where my heart is heavy on my tongue

My mouth- sewn shut

My lungs are filled with frost

But I don’t feel a thing

Because my whole body is numbing

If you think you can warm me

You’re wrong

Even if you climb over the wall

I’m gone

Sure I might be there physically

But me, the real me, was never inside my body

I am winter

I am cold

I am ice

I am frozen

Summer won’t thaw me

Spring won’t warm me

Fire won’t melt me

Heat won’t heal me,

And you?

You can’t save me.
