The temper of my soul
is losing its intent
The weaker I feel
the less I pretend

I need to rest a while
A mind with no support
The years have been unkind
I have to learn to adore

Too many consequences
to bring me down
I hear too much opinion
to find a stable ground

Show me some affection
Only what you know
I don't want perfection
Perfection never grows

Grant me one emotion
and call it what you will
Let me have a moment
and satisfy my guilt
Keep me on the edge
and I'll never look down
I'm only dead
when you're not around

The window of the future
is translucent in my mind
What good is the light
when the bad can't stay behind

I've given up self sympathy
for a much bigger sense
I won't be sad
just at my expense
