In a dead garden, I sit alone,
Wondering where you had gone.
My heart so lonely, cold as stone,
Falling to the ground, done.
I know that all of this will never change,
It never did.
My life is never gonna be the same,
My joys and treasures hid.
Beside a withered rose I stand
My mind wandering steadily away.
I keep thinking of your hand,
Once around mine everyday.
I feel so broken, so alone,
I can’t take any more.
Only crimson remains on the rose’s stone
Where I had been before.
My books they burn into the night
Casting dark shadows all around.
The fire burns so bright,
Scares away the feisty hound.
I had been here once before,
Thinking silence was my favorite sound.
But now, I see the sadness I have in store,
And I realized that I looked for things I had never found.
Oh, these rainy, rainy days How wet! The feeble branches sway, The clouds block the sun. It doesn’t seem like day, Not at all. The birds are no longer singing The crickets in the shaded grass are singing; The sound of dripping water’s still ringing, Sounding like, “ping, pong, ping!” And wet are the poor birds’ wings. Oh the sun, hidden behind the trees! How I wish the rain would be as nice as these Rainbow colored showers, so free. Back then, running around were we But it is cold rain that I see. Oh, these damp, cold, rainy days— How wet! The feeble trees’ branches sway, The clouds and thick rain block the sun. It doesn’t seem like day, No, my dear, not at all.
I miss you, come back home In the shape of a beautiful paper crane, Its intricate design meeting my curious eyes. Your wings are flapping, sending warm breezes Into my world of us. I wanna fold a thousand paper birds Just to grant my wish that is you. One picture is worth a thousand words And that picture is you. Come, come closer to me So I can see the flowers on your colorful wings. Oh paper crane, my paper crane, Your soft eyes meet mine; My face brightens with a shine. Stay by my side, walk with me for a while And hold me in your arms. My paper crane, I don’t need to fold a thousand Because you’re here with me, And that is all I need, It’s all I want, And what I want is only you, my paper crane.
Screw all those stupid rules Let’s just be ourselves just for now; We don’t have any time to lose. Lets just have fun, but how? You start a conversation One full of ridiculous nonsense. It makes my eyes sparkle with laughter, Then you notice and I quickly turn away. The next day, all you do is stare at me. I wonder what this feeling’s supposed to be? Late nights with friends, scoldings together, Long converstaions over the phone. Late the next day again, Fail on the test again Eyes once more sparkle with joy At the sight of you. So much fun we had together, So much things we went through together, Those times when we were lost together But now our hearts are found. Those times when we would laugh Our throats would be sore the next day. Now I know what that feeling is It’s a sense of belonging, a sense of friendship-- Something I have never felt before, Something I really love. It’s nice to have someone to be there for you. It’s wonderful to just be with you. Without that mask of who I pretended to be, How wonderful to have friends like you. Thank you, I really appreciate it Thank you, for being my dearest friends.
The butterfly follows me, everyday Leading me across the path, fluttering their wings. Trust me, it says, we will lead the way to happiness. I float along, lost in my thoughts, like a butterfly, Waving my arms trying to keep up with its swift wings. Butterfly, butterfly, slow down and let me follow you home. So free, you spend your days in the sun, having fun. Walking along the path, I try to keep up. Wait, I say, wait for me I want to find myself too, I want to know who I am and what I am in this world. Butterfly, butterfly, beautiful butterfly, lead me home to you.
I just can’t Take anymore of this nonsense, Can’t take anymore of this face Expressionless and cruel. I just can’t Take anymore of this world. I’m slowly drowning, Turning blue. Tell me, do you care for me? Do you think of me? Do love me Like you used to? I’m going away Far from your lies, Far from you And your lying face. I’m going away From this wicked world, To find a life of my own, To find a place of my own. I can’t be With a someone who doesn’t love me. I can’t be with you, Or even think of you. I just can’t Take any more of this world, This world full of lies This world full of cruelty. Because I’m going away To a place unknown to myself, To a place that I don’t know To a place, a place of my own. I’m going away Far from your cold touch, Far from your lies And your useless words. So goodbye, Goodbye dear, Goodbye, And we’ll meet in darkness once more.
