Savann

(My acapella of this is on soundcloud; the producer whose music inspired it did not come through. Anyone want to write better music?

In another time,
In another life I'd find...
In another way
To the other side of life...

But here I am, and there you stand, and oceans lie between
To see that sunrise with my own eyes I'd do anything
I don't know your name
But you'll come to take me away

I'm in the train, it's a long ride
Looking out as the world passes me by
What will I find on the other side?
Are you there holding my hand
Or am I alone?
I will stand on stones on the mountainside
Looking down on my new home
My new life

In another place,
To another foreign land
I'll escape, and maybe this time I can leave me behind
Start over new, be who I wanted to
And you're my ticket to ride
But I wasn't there, oh I was wrong
You couldn't give me what I needed, now you're gone
Everything I hoped for,
My castles on the mountainside are lost
Where are you now?
I don't know, I don't care
But now all I'm left with is me

I'm in the train, it's a long ride
Looking out as the world passes me by
What will I find on the other side?
Are you there holding my hand
Or am I alone?
I will stand on stones on the mountainside
Looking down on my new home
My new life

The Good Things Take Time

A field of green is all i see
The evening sun shines down on me
As we fly in to land
Again we end up just where we began
If dreams come true
Where is the one that was meant just for you?

It's allright, don't you know that the good things take time
Stay strong, fix your eyes
And your future will be so bright, so bright

I had a friend
One day his blue eyes felt the same
As your own eyes feel today
And he's the one who told me it's okay
Just hold on, keep fighting, stand strong
You'll make it, you'll take it
It might not be what you thought it would be
But it's allright

Don't you know that the good things take time
He was young but wise
And the words that he said stayed with me for a lifetime

Glyph

An arbitrary collection of lines
When combined in the right form
Reveals an architecture divine 
Without compare

I learned to draw my own
Before I understood the meanings
When you split, add, recombine
The arches, curves, and lines 
Before I found more beautiful 
The ones that represent the ones I love

Let me take my pen and draw you
Though I don't understand light, or shadow, or color
Let me immortalize you just the same
I just need to know your name
