Temporary Borders


Whispered words beneath the floating autumn leaves 
Flying softly on the southern breeze 
Fragments of light between the branches and trees 
I wish I would stay here forever 

The sun is sinking behind mountains of old 
Brushing faintly clouds of red and gold 

Night-time's flinging a vast veil of velvet across fields and forest 
Trespassing the havens of daylight's temporary borders. 
I knew my game could gain me but grief, the fairy tale was on though brief 
Trespassing the havens of secrecy's temporary borders. 

Scratching the surface of times seemingly forgotten 
Of you who once were mine betrothen 
Digging 'neath layers of emotions now rotten 
I feel myself slip away 
Nostalgic entertainment tingled by the past 
You were the one to be mine at last 
But now my memory's ever fading so fast 
Keeping emotions at bay 

Here I sit, and memories unfold 
My feelings are hollow, I'm feeling so old 

"I feel it fade away and cry tears in solitude" 
Trespassing the havens of night-time's temporary borders 
As shadows collapse in the mating of day and night, crows are circling in ominous flight 
Trespassing the havens of my own temporary borders (temporary borders) 


I tried. I tried hard to believe 
Thinking of us has left me but grief 
I cannot look ahead, the past is all I see 
Moments together, but time's a thief 

Shadows recurring from times long since passed 
Our time and now in a perfect contrast 

"As I see you sitting by my grave 
I feel your presence, but can't say a word 
Your heart and love, patient and brave 
But my soul is too late for you to save" 

I am probably a fool still thinking of you 
Night after night. 
There's not much else I can do 
For neither myself nor you 
Maybe I should leave and never come back to this place. 
But I know too surely that I'm only fooling myself 
I'm only fooling myself
