[Poetry] Slowly I turned

The show must go on
From a father without a son
Funny men aren't meant to cry
When the radio's turned on

Who's on first?
Baby don't fear
Wherever you are
You're going to hear

When the starlight shines
You're the only thing on my mind
Gonna run away with vaudeville
Gonna take my time

The show must go on
That's how it's got to be
Wherever he is tonight
I want him to hear me

[Poetry] Josephine

Josephine, my love
My sweet
Don't you understand?
Can't I make you see?
This is all just a dream

Josephine, my love
My dear
There's nothing to see
Nothing to fear
There's nothing here

Hold your head high
Take a deep breath
Run your fingers over the sky
Let go of the rest, and say goodnight

[Poetry] Recompense

This all seems so familiar

Do we need all this extra weight?
Burried, so we should leave it behind.

Just leave me behind

Dance caliber, sweet blue, behind her eyes
Diamonds on cheek, sparkle and shine
He holds her softly, rocking where they lay
Light shifting, bright to ashen grey

Tin shoulders rise and fall
Stand to meet the coming tide
The flow of tears that tear away
The tiers and ties that'd bind and sway

This all seems so familiar

Do we need all this extra weight?
What's burried should stay burried.

Just leave me...

One more refrain, before we leave
One more, one less we

[Poetry] Shadows of Eternity

I am cut
Walking on the earth above you
Walking on the sky above me
You are deep

We are
All that we were ever meant to be
We are
Shadows on eternity

I am cut
Laying here all alone tonight
Laying here quiet by my side
You are sleep

We are
All that we were ever meant to be
We are
Shadows of eternity
