One More Song

One More Song

A Poem by Art Betancourt
"

A jab at writing lyrics.

"
It's that point of life
Where all signs on the road stop
Looking back you deny to admit
You'd get this lost
Oh frantic world I found you
So small and so immense 
We just chose a road 
Kept at it
But never thought I'd...
I'd see this desert
And the oceanside beyond here
Pray forgive but in my heart
I just don't have the strength
Keep me safe I cry
Keep me firm I beg
And steady please
Even the coin
Fears to take a 
Side on this quest
These voices over my head keep screaming
These phantoms telling me to stay forever
Who knows which voice is telling me the truth?
Are you afraid of the truth?
These voices over my head scream
Nowhere to go
This endless downfall begins at last
Please break my fall
My heart is trying to say the truth
I hear it loud
Ambush life in that lonely night
Force it to yield
The secret way to ensure a place
Heavenly bound
These voices over my head keep screaming
These phantoms telling me to stay forever
Who knows which voice is telling me the truth?
Are you afraid of the truth?
These voices over my head scream
Nowhere to go
My mind and sanity are just gone
I keep my vows
To be your love I will venture
Always mine heart
One more turn at the wheel I take
One more petal of the rose I prick
One more grain of sand I count
One more dream...
