In An Empty Room


[Rape I - The Victim]

 Here you sit innocent, your beautiful face
 Everything all at once taken away
 Even though not everything can be replaced
 Yesterday's gone and you still have today

 I can see you
 Hiding behind broken eyes
 It'll be fine please don't cry
 You will be OK with me
 I can see you, living inside scared and blind
 I am right here please don't hide
 Close your eyes my child

 To rid your mind of all the hurt
 And turn gray skies blue
 I'd wash away the memory
 And make your heart new
 No comfort in these clumsy words
 No solace no truth
 Just to exchange one life for pain
 And I'd give mine for you

 Oh how time went by - you and I
 Used to live that life - that made us smile

 I know right now that you don't want me here
 Soon the stain will fade -
 I'll wipe away your tears
 'Cause without you in my life
 It just does not seem right
 I'll wait right by your side 'til you come home

 I can see my presence
 Is dragging us apart
 It's hard to be so closed off
 From you in my heart
 Flesh and blood
 Can heal and hurt
 Time will take away the pain
 I'll back away
 Give you space
 Until you feel no shame
