04 BODY AT WAR

Got my eyes wide open
But my heart is shut
Yet I remember the pain
Of every single cut
That got through
To the core
Was it long ago?
Was it yesterday?
Good things appear
Good things slip away
And no-one knows how much
There is in store
Leave alone someone
Whose body’s at war

I wear the wrong clothes
Sleep in the wrong place
The mirror on the wall
Shows the wrong face
My own reflection
Looks like a lie
I should be on the street
Far away from this bed
If the lights aren’t green
I will run when they’re red
Home to my love and daughter
And together we’ll fly
Instead of lying here waiting
For the day to go by

I look into her eyes
And she looks into mine
The sky cracks open
And the sun starts to shine
A weary smile
Is all I’ve got
I don’t mean to be whining
I don’t mean to complain
Just stating the facts
And there’s no reason to feign
I’ve seen better days
But tell me: Who has not?
I’ve seen better days
But tell me: Who has not?
