Ghost Dance – Unspoken Words

Set me free I must leave this place
To begin my life again
Grit my teeth to ignore the memories
That clutch like drowning men
Now these years that have served me well
Have become my past
No fault of yours that I chose this way
But all the same, alas it’s meant to be

Wasting away in a limo
Sitting here watching the grass grow
All of the days of a life
Go by like so many centuries

Bars before me
My childhood fears stand painted on thin air
Stronger still are the anxious faces
Which bind with loving care
Welcome to this womb of love
I am safe and warm
But the cause that has gave me life
Now coils around my feet to drag me down

Wasting away in a limo
Sitting here watching the grass grow
All of the days of a life
Go by like so many centuries

Hearing my words unsaid

Wasting away in a limo
Sitting here watching the grass grow
All of the days of a life
Go by like so many centuries

Vow to leave you I make excuses
To talk with you a while
Stand before you a frown confronting
Your soft unknowing smile
Poised to strike with these faithful words
A knife above your head
I sigh and the strong will just melts away
I move my lips – the words remain unsaid
