edge of life

“If I had a life I could live

Then I’d travel to places unknown.

With you in my heart, I’d begin at the start

and never would I be alone.

A voice in the evening is calling

It tears at my soul like a fire.

Yet I cannot forget the time when we met

And the burning of that newfound desire.

I love you, I say in the darkness

I feel that I must hold you near.

Yet you slip through my grasp, like the hours gone past

and that voice is still all I can hear.

It tells me to travel to mountains

And to places where valleys are green.

Yet it’s hard to let go of the things that I know

and the love and the hardship I’ve seen.

If I had a dream I could give you

I would wrap it in velvet and pearls

and send it away on the the rush of the wind

that would carry it over the world.

The night holds on to me tightly

And she won’t let me out in the cold.

I’ve reaped what I’ve sown, and I’ve called this place home

Still I’m searching for something to hold.

If I had a life I could live

then I’d travel to places unknown.

With you in my heart, I’d begin at the start

And never would I be alone.

With tears in my eyes I speak to you

Through the blindness of good and of bad

Please forget what I’ve said for the feelings are dead.

You’re the best friend that I’ve ever had.

And if I had a dream I could give you

I’d wrap you in velvet and pearls

And send it away on the rush of the wind

That would carry it over the world.

I still have a life I’m not living.

I must get to those places unknown.

With you in my heart, I will end where I start

And never will I be alone.”
