my muse

enemy – a work in progress

stay awake with me
’cause I can’t face these ghosts alone
3AM how I know you well
when the silence is so loud
it’s deafening
there’s a rock in my stomach
weighing heavy on my soul

I am
my own worst
enemy
If I can
destroy this
I will

haven’t felt this way in a while
haven’t felt this way
and for every second step I take
there’s a stumble, there’s a fall
and no matter how fast or furious I go
I feel I’ll never get there at all
save me from the dark
save me from the dark

I am
my own worst
enemy
If I can
destroy this
I will

when you can’t breathe
’cause there’s no oxygen
and the world’s dark, the room spins
you open your mouth to scream
but there’s no sound
the silence is killing me

save me from myself
save me from my self

I am my own worst
and I will destroy this
I will

when the night fall
lies become truths
that little voice inside
promises I’m losing you
I’m drowning, I’m floating
suffocating so far away from peace

I am
my own worst
enemy
(save me from myself)
and if I can
destroy this
I will
(save me from myself)

stay awake with me

Don’t steal this, it’s mine. I shall shoot you with my laser eyes if you do! *glare*

    The piano is coming along. Once it’s perfected I shall record and post a video. Right now I’m busy fighting with the bridge because I know what I want to play I just can’t do it when I am singing. :mrgreen:

    This is what one resorts to when one can’t look at the computer or read or watch TV and is seriously bored and fighting anxiety at the same time. Songwriting. Catharsis.
