A Lovely Tune

“I know that there’s a meaning to it all.
A little resurrection every time I fall.
You got your babies, I got my hearses.
Every blessing comes with a set of curses.
I got my vices, I got my vice verses”

-Switchfoot

~A Lovely Tune~

The night has succumbed to the darkness.
The stars are no longer doing their job,
And the moon has lost the sun.

Day has never felt so quiet.
Twilight no longer has any color.
What is this world coming to?

When does it make sense to feel?
Is it okay to care just a bit?
To bring the light to a place that decides it doesn’t need it.

Loss makes the world look a little different.
Friends that go through heartache destroy you a bit inside.
But we pray and that is all we can do.
When you are in another country just trying to sing a lovely tune.

When the light hurts your eyes.
And the fire burns cold.
It is time to mourn for another soul.

Nights are longer and the day is never
When a friend is in pain.
And when it is your best friend it hurts even more.

Loss makes the world look a little different.
Friends that go through heartache destroy you a bit inside.
But we pray and that is all we can do.
When you are in another country just trying to sing a lovely tune.

I am told to shake it off.
I am told that times heals all wounds.
I am told to walk the line.

But sometimes I just want to cry.
Sometimes I want to hide.
Is it okay to do so every once and awhile?

For the world we live in is broken.
And all the words that are spoken,
Do nothing to quell the situation we find ourselves in.

For loss makes the world look a little bit different.
Friends that go through heartache can destroy you inside.
But we pray and that is all we can do.
When you are in another country just trying to sing a lovely tune.
