Odd Life

Bathed in my warm light
Leaching out degrees, last thing I heard
Was you calling goodbye in flight
Leaving just your memory, dim and blurred

You bathed in my warm light
Never aware how I was submerged
You called out, saying ask me again
Never knowing how I can't hear your words

You held my heat and nerve
I could feel your heart beat slow
And I thought you'd never know
And I thought you'd never go

Your repute, a lovely light against
The wicked episodes you breed
For the truth you always stood broad
Foretold the truth in lies, in greed

And claimed you were God-like
I couldn't argue it, you knew
Lost in an odd life
Wanting to be through

You nailed my weakest words
I could feel my heartbeat slow
And I knew you'd never know
And I knew you'd better go

Your repute, a lovely light against
The wicked episodes you'd breed
For the truth you always stood broad
Foretold the truth in lies and greed

And your fame left you God-like
I couldn't argue it
You knew, you knew
Lost in an odd life
Wanting to be through.
