Artist's Description

Be sure to listen to the music

I suppose you think I wait for you?
You suppose that this is all I do.
Whilst I spend my time just waiting to see.
Whilst you spend your time away from me.

Ah, silly boy you are mistaken
Tis not my heart that you have taken.
My heart is not for you to hold
You’ve lost that right, if truth be told.

I prefer the silence of forgotten pain
No longer will I allow hurt to gain
A hold upon my head and heart
I will stop that aching before it starts.

I say these words to remind myself
That no man shall put me upon a shelf.
I will not allow these dreams of fire
As if languishing in a house of desire.
