Singing in the Rain by Themrock Singing in the Rain by Themrock
She lifts her skirt up to her knees
Walks through the garden rows
With her bare feet laughing
I never learned to count my blessings
I choose instead to dwell
In my disasters
I walk on down the hill
Through grass grown tall
And brown and still
It's hard somehow
To let go of my pain
On past the busted back 
Of that old and rusted Cadillac
That sinks into this field 
Collecting rain
Will I always feel this way
So empty
So estranged?
And of these cut throat busted sunsets
These cold and damp white mornings
I have grown weary
If through my cracked and dusty 
Dime store lips 
I spoke these words out loud 
Would no one hear me?
Lay your blouse across the chair
Let fall the flowers 
From your hair 
And kiss me
With that country mouth
So plain
Outside the rain is tapping
On the leaves 
To me it sounds like
They're applauding us
The quiet love
We've made
Will I always feel this way
So empty
So estranged?
Well I looked my demons in the eyes
Lay bare my chest
Said do your best
To destroy me
See I've been to hell and back
So many times
I must admit
You kinda bore me
There's a lot of things
That can kill a man
There's a lot of ways
To die
Yes, and some already did
And walk beside me
There's a lot of things
I don't understand
Why so many people lie
It's the hurt I hide that fuels
The fire inside me
Will I always feel this way
So empty 
So estranged?

maybe it'll never truly go away, but maybe not always. it's important to remember the people and things that help you forget for a time. i have a feeling you're reading most of our comments, and probably don't have much energy to reply. good luck friend. we're here when you need us.

Poor good Smirk :(
It is a prettylooking, yet gloomy and sorrowful scenario and I can only hope that Smirk finds his way outta there and sees a couple of sunbeams and less clouds again.
