Im the dreamer in his song

Spoken in tongues
That are all and one
We ploughed our way
Through the change
And caged beliefs

A story told from
Ages past
All my life
Ive had this feeling in my soul
But not asked
Because the questions can mislead

But all my life I’ve known
We’re not the only ones
I’m the dreamer in his song
But I’m only a shadow of you
Not love
Not truth
I’m only a shadow of you

He tried to take
My energy
Refused to see
I didn’t belong
to him
Was not his prize or property

They only fed the fire that was already raging
They were not the cause of my making

But all my life I’ve known
We’re not the only ones
I’m the dreamer in his song
But I’m only a shadow of you
Not love
Not truth
I’m only a shadow of you

She has lions
In her hands
They choose to listen
And understand
They chose to stay
With her
By her side
With no chains or whips or lies
Or circus acts
Or clowns and their masks

There are vultures waiting to dive

To bend and break
Manipulate for their own gain
But this is not a game
That I will play
No more feathers for others
To take

Broken vases
And whispering fences
Move with the tides and rise
When my light is weak

But all my life I’ve known
We’re not the only ones
I’m the dreamer in his song
But I’m only a shadow of you
Not love
Not truth
I’m only a shadow of you

And there’s this flame that burns on and on
The nameless unchosen one

I don’t own this light
But I want it to own me
And while I’m alive
I’ll sing out loud
I’ll sing like you’re mine
I’ll sing like im free

And we’re not the only ones
I’m the dreamer in his song
Im am the river running
And nothing can stop this flood
No terms
No conditions
No pre-written verse
Because I’m the difference

The difference

The difference

The difference

Im the difference

Hopefully i will make it in to a song, it’ll stay like this for now though. Ive bought a new i phone and have made two songs – one a cover and one is a poem that is already on redbubble. Ive always wanted to sing and record my voice and im so happy that i can do it on my little phone. You can view the songs HERE
