Some days there is not enough
chocolate or booze
to chase away the blues
or stop torrential thoughts of love
gone too soon.
What's a lonely girl to do.
The only thing that eases the pain
is music from silent words
thought to be penned in vain.

Cowering to the joker inside.
Praying God sends his army
to help me make the climb,
out of the abyss to my sober life.

Behind me, beside me, within me
night and day.
You haunt me.
That’s the way I want it to be.
Love is a mystery.

I used to think it would be an honor
to usher in a thousand years of peace,
a willing martyr to stop senseless suffering,
but I had no idea of the atrocities
that would ensue between men,
or the loss of innocent children
that we would witness with despair

flood evil with love,
make our planet a peaceful place,
