mystery land
[autumn 2011]

one day when i’m gone
the ghosts will sing my haunted song
to every soft and whispered lullaby

the time it is so near
the answers in mist so clear
it washes every tear with acrid smiles

so when i let it go
tonight with the moon so low
sunrise may never come
in this dark and haunted mystery land
where love is forever gone & cold

so carry on like you do
your happiness and love so true
to every lie that sings in harmony

i’ll fade away like you want
a shadow only left to haunt
to sing alone to dreams that never come

so when i let it go
tonight with the moon so low
sunrise may never come
in this dark and haunted mystery land
where love is forever gone & cold

one day as a child
we learn to dream and chase desires
such innocence so easy to beguile

too down and tired to let it go
too alone and scared to let you know
too beaten down to every show
how hard i tried to find the light
so dark and so right
