light of life

Posted in Brutal Honesty with tags , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2010 by addictmagnet
Was never going to be a mother, had a bigger and better plan
I loved your father, but he’s a troubled soul so forgive him if you can

Wasn’t raising you with cocaine on the table and roaches in ashtrays

Held you in my arms as the smoke cleared and was able to see through the haze

it’s the light that takes me over

it’s the light that sets me free

it’s the light of life that’s inside of me

I left to make a better life for us, I did the best that I could do

He left, we never saw him again, I was too good for him, so are you

Got the job, ‘cause I got the degree, got the support of my family

Going to show everyone all I need is you and all you need is me

it’s the light that takes me over

it’s the light that sets me free

it’s the light of life that’s inside of me

I have a secret, you are the best mistake I ever made

You are much stronger and more beautiful than any plans I could’ve laid

You grew into such a smart and funny child, and precocious as they come

I know I was often tough on you, it’s me you needed to escape from

And you went away and saw hard times too but you succeeded in the end

Your are my pride and joy, you are my heart and soul, and now you are my friend

it’s the light that takes me over

it’s the light that sets me free

it’s the light of life that’s inside of me

You’re the light of life that shines inside of me

stolen pride

Posted in Brutal Honesty with tags , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2010 by addictmagnet
You needed someone to help you through

And the lies you told were so smooth

I was different from all the others

We were meant for only each other

So how did you choose me to ease your pain

And why did I let my guard down so easily

And where did you learn to play this game

And when will my pride be regained

Your eyes looked right into my soul

Your words distracted, my heart you stole

So I am classier and I’m platinum

Well I feel gullible and I feel dumb

So how did you choose me to ease your pain

And why did I let my guard down so easily

And where did you learn to play this game

And when will my pride be regained

You paraded me around and I met your friends

Now I can’t go anywhere without running into them

We hung out at the pub and the best place in town

We went on a holiday then you let me down

So how did you choose me to ease your pain

And why did I let my guard down so easily

And where did you learn to play this game

And when will my pride be regained

So now you want to be my friend, not for it to be the end

And I’m suppose to be ok and I’m not suppose to show my pain

And now you play the game with someone new

And I am suppose to smile when I look at you

At night while they kiss and caress you

I lay awake crying silent tears missing you

So how did you choose me to ease your pain

And why did I let my guard down so easily

And where did you learn to play this game

And when will my pride be regained
