Angel's Tears

by

Only Skinn Deep


don't think you can't save me
from this dying fairy tale land
when the walls keep growing
and the waters are rising
just make sure you wings are dry
don't ever leave my site
hovering right above me
all these chances lie in you
and i won't drown
until the air runs out
i'll always stay afloat with teh ope
you've bestowed in me
through your eyes

yea, your eyes are of the sunset
beautiful shades of night
and your eyes are all i've needed
and i will always be alive
i will always be...

and i never lied to you
when i said you are my angel
if you think taht you've been failing me
you're wrong
because hope has kept me alive here
don't ever cry for me, m'dear
just because you think i'm drowning
remeber that you're only one step above me
and your ocean of tears are what keeps you there
but with your hope, i will keep swimming
and in your eyes, i can see... all i ask -

don't ever say you've failed me
you know that's not the truth
don't ever say you can't save me
the reason i'm still here...
is all because of you

your eyes are of the sunset
beautiful shades of night
and your eyes are all i've needed
and i will always be alive
i will always be...
here
(in your sunset of tears)


Red Rose Bush in the Dawn

by

Only Skinn Deep

once in a life tyme
and mine's almost done
the night is now fading
to the harsh summer's sun
and while feathers are lining
the path that i follow
all the angels are watching
the aproaching tomorrows
i am sorry i hurt you
i am sorry i bleed
but i guesh i was rushing
by planting the seed
of a thorny red rose bush
which blossed and grew
i am sorry i built up this wall
against you
the roses aren't dying
and you're truth isn't true
so i'll tear out your wings
because they no longer fit you
the sun is peaking over
the tops of black mountians
the light overcomes and
darkness is forgotten
with every bright ray
your wings are set aflame
my child, not my angel,
you're fading away

Go Alone

by

Only Skinn Deep


when we talked last night
you know, i poured my heart out to you, unattentive as you were
things shouldnt end like this, but yea, shit happens
and you said it wasnt my falt
and i said it wasnt your's
and we both were just lying 'cause we didnt want to take any blame
i know i should have done things different
i know i should have said things i din
but you do not need to act this way
show some compassion for a broken whore, please
lord knows, i did that much for you
so i guess ill never get to call you 'my baby'
guess ill never get to call you at all, anymore
you want me out of your face
and i swear im running as fast as i can
carring this head full of thoughts and a heart filled with tears
i wish it wouldnt be this way
but i guess thats just how i crumbled
deep down inside, do you still think we are perfect?
wonder how things should be?
no, not me- cause i know i wasnt ment for you
even if you think it could be
so step up, and step off, its tyme to leave
go alone
cause thats how you said you want it
with out me


letter to my angel

by

Only Skinn Deep

I'm not sure when you will recieve this, not like it really matters much anyway. I just need to vent a little bit... to think out loud and get a response that isn't my own - because I'm sick of hearing my own voice wimpering the same old confusing unanswering answers... sick of the tears, the pain, of the blood... just plain sick. A little advice from an angel would be nice, and I know what you are deep down inside. I see past the mask you've put on. Your wings may not be showing through your black silk shirt, but I know they're there, the brightest white imaginable... I know. Because that mask, it might hide your face, and that stupid suit might cover your shimmering skin, but I don't look to any of that... Your eyes are holding the secrets to it all. Some how I've managed to obtain the key to open that little lock God has put over you, and now, every tyme I glance into your eyes I see the real angel that's forced down inside. I only wish he would hold me...

Written to my Guardian Angel,
*yes, angel do exisist...



Beautiful (i can't)

by

Only Skinn Deep

tearing myself down
as always
tearing my dreams down
i mean,
letting them tear at my flesh
i think im getting tyred
it always seems to happen like this
these ups, these downs -
he walks in and smiles
i cant help but smile back
he tells me im beautiful
i cant handle that
too many nerves have died
too many words turend to lies
and hes just another scar
another gash in my soul
but i cant let this go on
cant go past the surface this tyme
cant shed more blood - cant risk another death
those dreams, my dreams,
they just hurt after a while
filling my head with thorns and stones
and im sinking down into my rusted bucket
and im draining through its redd crusted holes
cutting, tearing
but i cant bleed this tyme
i must be washed clean this tyme
until im beautiful agian
strangled by my dreams
i cant take one more breath
until im beautiful again
until the lies have been broken
there is no us - no you, no me
no, not one more scar
i must be washed clean
to be beautiful...
but, i just cant...

he stood, staring into her green eyes
and as they raged with flames,
the echos of her voice screamed, "Could you please
just tear out my heart
because it's burning in a way
that you obviously won't ever understand...
can't you just end all this here and
hold it in your hands
keep that piece of me for your warmth
and together we can burn away and fall apart..."
