Alright, well, it would feel bad to bump an ancient topic (the lyrics thread), so I guess I'll just remake the old one, and give it a new title. Seems to work for the Call of Duty series.
So, for my first work, I wrote this little tune recently, as a sort of short story or something. I came up with some lyrics for a song, and that's pretty much what these are, with some minor modifications. I read this with a tune in my head, but you don't have to.
Beautiful Nightmare -- A poem penned by _I.M. Dude_ in 2011.
It's raining... my favorite type of weather.
At sundown... my favorite time of day.
I'm dreaming... of something to make it better.
I'm bleeding... my cure for you to stay.
I don't want to go...
Thought you ought to know...
I don't wanna leave...
Please don't let me...
I've got you... in my arms, forever.
As long as... I want you to be.
It might be... a walk into the never.
But let me... indulge my fantasy.
It's not like I'm missing much on the outside.
It's not like I'm losing much on the inside.
It's not like I'm feeling much on the outside.
It's not like I'm asking much from you at all...
You stand up... and walk away from me.
I can't move... but I can take the pain.
The rain stops... it ends my little journey...
The dream is over. Reality once again.
