Beyond The Lights (Cheryl Wheeler)

Thought you'd bide your time and play your part but you were wrong dear. Somewhere down the line your lonely heart could not belong here. And in some frame of reason, beyond our vision, Your love lagged behind and fell apart Without a soul to hear On a night like this the stars don't shine and there's no moonlight. We're like you I guess, we bide our time, try to play our parts right, and wonder where you gathered your angry sorrow. Through the rolling mist the scenes unwind. They seem so clear tonight. Were they in your stars those lonely nights, tormented hours? Something snapped your spars and slacked your lines and took your powers Did no one see you sinking till you'd gone under? While you slipped so far beyond the lights, were we just watching ours?
