For now


(SFX – Wind Blowing)
(Guitar BEGINS)
(Percussion BEGINS)
(Bass BEGINS)

Sizzling fire flaming my back
I run from the times that pull me back
The scar on my skin, the chain around my neck
It all starts to itch
I scratch my scar

(Strings BEGIN)

Caught in this aching misery
I have smiled to drown my pain
And, they send me their number to read my mind

(Drums BEGIN)
(Guitar SOLO)

I’ve ran life’s race myself
I’ve ran it quite well
The choices I’ve broken
I have forsaken
Being full of myself
So, think of me like the wind
I’ll come and I’ll go and
I’ll not return back

(Drum FILL)

I am caught in this aching misery
I have
Smiled to drown my pain
And, they send me their number to read my mind

I found myself someone to listen to my stories
She smiles, and then she grins just like everyone
But, I’m like the wind, I won’t stay for long
I won’t be around, be it right or wrong

I have touched and felt the soul of misery
So, I understand your story, better than you think
“Forget me like your worst nightmare”
And, you’ll be fine

Do this only for yourself
And not for me

I am caught in this aching misery
I have
Smiled to drown my pain
And, they send me their number to read my mind
And, they give me a token to read my mind
And, they ask me how I still stand
And, they ask me how does it feel to survive
And, they ask me this to read my mind
Not as a friend, just as someone
And, someone is good enough
For now

(MUSIC FADE OUT)

Great writing AJ...certainly an emotional piece. You can feel the turmoil and pain in each word.
