Unrequited Love

This sweet temptation of lies
Lures to the skies
In confusion, the threads can be frayed
The truth of the few is left in the shade

I tug at the rope of reason
My fingers they burn
Would you know
If I let go?

Sadly I watch as higher you fly
Clouds rolling by
Obscured in the glade
My truth in the shade

I tug at the rope of reason
My fingers they burn
Could you know
If I let go?

Icarus, fold your wings and drop
Wonderful secrets await
Before they fade
Here in the shade

I tug at the rope of reason
My fingers they burn
Where would you go
If I let go?

Smell the wild rose on your pillow
Cry in the arms of support
That’s how I’m made
Down here in the shade

One last tug on the rope
Fingers in shreds, not daring to hope
Beginning to fade
My love in the shade
