From Dusk till Dawn

Whispers in the dark
Are not enough to endorse our love
Autumn-worn leaves eternally dropping from above
Just a sign of our condition

Hesitation marks on your wrists
After the last time we kissed
And babe it ain’t like I haven’t missed
Those lips as soft as a baby’s bottom

Maybe it’s time for it to end
Maybe we can be friends again

I just wanna hold you 
Just wanna hold on to you
Never letting you go
Baby I wanna make love all night long
From Dusk till Dawn
So that our long-lost romance would again show

Tears of joy
Are water droplets that can destroy
In this world of romance I’m unemployed
I'm alone and annoyed

Tell me if it’s alright please
At least be a bit of a tease
How you used to strike a blow at the crease
Of my heart that's now always on a lease

Maybe it wasn’t heaven-sent
Maybe you needed consent
To respawn in our sad short story
And reignite its former glory...

Death Song

Was love too much to ask for
Or was daydreaming about it enough?
Was hate too much to live for
Or was trying to get out of it not connected with love?

Your voice is angelic
Blows out all of Hell’s fires
My choice is perfect
But will you include me in your list of poetic liars?

You sing lullabies at night to your sweethearts
For me you produced a Death Song
I am yet to know when my funeral starts
Was love just too wrong?

And I still love you
Though my heart’s bleeding
And I still owe you
As I lay dying…

Death-defying

They said we'll never make it
They said we're just for show
And I couldn't take it
But now we've made it

Took the risk, got what we came for
No more living in the shadows of what we craved for
Trap us in World War Z anytime
We'll escape relentlessly every time

Our Death-defying romance lives on
We are alive
In the fantasy we dreamt of
Together each day and night

They said we looked bittersweet
They said we were just pretending to be
Maybe they were right
In another life

Gave it a crack of what we dreamt of
Heard Cupid's music with the sound turned off
Living big until we fade off
This earth ain't anything without us on

So please tell me if true love exists
'Cause if not I think I've found it
Discovery of the century
With my arm around it

She's all I have
Saved me from my sudden death
My long-life other half
Until death...
