A Dark Cup of Coffee


As my story falls apart.

I stand sorry with a heavy heart.

I regret all I have done;

I have lost all I have won.

I hear the noise of being free.

A noise that's not what it used to be.

I fear the feeling of letting go,

Yet it's the best one I've come to know.

A parade moves to an empty drum.

Now my body's going numb.

To all the mistakes that I've made,

I say my prayers cause I've been saved.

A coin falls to empty well.

I've made my wish as my dreams they fell.

I hope that in the end you'll see.

My love for you will forever be waiting.
