Track Name: April's Intent Towards Desire
Sometimes i feel i'm in a performance
Stumble, mumble toward a chance
Meeting, greeting or circumstance.
2 left feet in a strange dance.

Wondered inside what to do
To ease away your troubled hue.
Thoughts wise but never astute
Flutter away like a broken flute.

Aprils Intent Toward Desire
Left her stranded in the fire.
Innocence as pure as a choir.
I'll be your light, not the liar.

Dance under stars on sand
Leave your tears on dry land.
When i reach for your hand
You say you don't like the band.

Streams of green grass flows
Round your pearl skin bestowed.
Won't you let your light glow
To pick me up from the undertow.

Aprils Intent Toward Desire
Left her stranded in the fire.
Innocence as pure as a choir.
I'll be your light, not the liar.
Track Name: Memorelaine
Steered through the storm i seethed.
Alive on a mountain i breathed
A purest of notions i seeked.
Wonder & warmth you bequeathed.

I heard a drop of pure noise
Lost my grace & sense of poise.
This allusion of disillusion
The end will remain my choice.

I hear the birds overhead
Left stranded but not yet dead.
Sanity starts to wane...
Walk down MemorElaine.

So endlessly i walk thru the mire
There still lurks an endless desire
To leave this impenetrable cold
And dance thru the raging fire.

A riddle wrapped in one big surprise
An enigma that failed to hide
The nature of its untimely demise
No one cared to ever find out why. Why?

I hear the birds overhead
Left stranded but not yet dead.
Sanity starts to wane...
Walk through MemorElaine.
Track Name: A Rose For Anne's Heart
Offer security in confusion
Absolution from this total devotion.
Store your sorrows away.

Lay in my mind through February
Always remorse in old memories.
Nothing left to say.

Regress to innocence time forgets
Your warmth i can no longer detect.
Led yourself astray.

Dropped my guard in the heat of desire.
Words cold yet filled with fire.
So far apart.
Days longing, nights falling
About to give but still stalling
A Rose For Anne's Heart.

Want to leave these troubles behind
To our fabled lullabies.
No use for dismay.

Such a life less imagined
In your eyes there's no magic.
Light turns to grey.

Dropped my guard in the heat of desire.
Words cold yet filled with fire.
So far apart.
Days longing, nights falling
About to give but still stalling
A Rose For Anne's Heart.

Nothing left to say or do
Remember skies that we're blue
Spoke of love forbidden and new
Never darkness flashing hues.
Track Name: Lay w/ The Lions
Once had a lovers heart, carried a dreamers dream
Held this head aloft while living w/ ease.
I see that your right & i'm making no sense
How does a dreamers dream always descend?

Witnessed the many rues, excuses lay bare & truce
Shoulder to cry on still dry from unuse.
Argued it senseless w/ emotions all hoarse
Lips i have lied through are splintered and sore.

Take a deep breath before you Lay w/ The Lions.
The flame we had carried now kindle and buried.

I hope for our own sake we'll give instead of take
But hopes a big mistake when there's promises made.
The auburn dusk is still, storm it sends a chill
Left w/ submission and feeling ill.

W/ mischievous ease the night tumbled forth
We've ceased the battle till our next war.

Take a deep breath before you Lay w/ The Lions.
The flame we had carried now kindle and buried.
Track Name: Dark Horse
Little room to compromise
A little room to run & hide.
From the fear you may be surprised
That these eyes hold no lies.

The Dark Horse when i surmised
Words you never felt we're right.
Fate deemed to far to align
Stars quilted in the moonlight.

Search for a moment to finally break free
From the endless misery.
Close the blinds to the memories
I never wanted, never seeked.

Hang your sorrow like a weathered wreath.
Hardly be bothered to ever speak.
Candles burn cause you never breathed
Out the light your darkness needs.

Finding comfort in your mood swings
A desert angel w/ clipped wings.
Tell me what your flowers bring
Wilted from your wedding ring.

Lost the panache and my rueful smile
Always walking the same old mile.
A little charm could do no harm
From this beguiling little child.

Hang your sorrow like a weathered wreath
Hardly be bothered to ever speak.
Candles burn cause you never breathed
Out the light your darkness needs.
