Paper Moon

I shed no tears that have not already been wept
I make no promises that have not been kept
For if within my power I would give until I bleed
Flowers will only bloom from a tendered seed

Reaching out I know I can touch the skies
As my fingertips caress the tears in your eyes
I grab the blossom that in the wind flies
And the lonely Wolf no longer cries

For without you I am without myself
Gathering the dust upon that lonely shelf
Awaiting you to waken me from my slumber
And touch all the stars in their infinite number

Then take my hand and lead me into your life
For where you are my destiny lies rife
Those chains that bound us with dreaded fear
Lie broken, for even when you are far you are near

I grasp your soul as if it were my own
And it melts within mine for a single throne
Where the Universe becomes our kingdom
And Shaka Zulu cried the hail of freedom

For I am a part of you as you are part of me
Together we would not relinquish to be born free
We will not be forsaken as Ares and Aphrodite
For our desires are not those of the fallen mighty

Perhaps before the time for us was far too soon
For roses always seem to bloom best in June
When the piper's lips play that long lost tune
And dreams were not dreamt upon a Paper Moon
