The Book. Lyrics by -JNoel. 《☆♤☆》.____.
Wide awake in a pale dark room, illuminated by the pictures in my mind.
Of times long ago and every "once upon a time". A day in the past of times at last and so the stories goes. A photograph and a simple song that nobody knows.
Where is the outside when everyone's lookin in? What is time to tell when it comes back from where it has been?
Does it stop turnin? Does anyone really know? The spinning of the record machine at the bar once it does close... Does happiness just fade away or does it stay locked in? Does a simple sentiment mean you've been graced by God's right hand?
Wide awake in a pale dark room illuminated by the pictures in my mind.
Of times long ago and every "once upon a time". The beauty ends with the beast, or at least that's what I am told. The wolf does growl, but doesn't eat them in the end.
The edges simply fade away, but the mind will color them in. With times and thoughts from yesterday, because the truth didn't make it in the end.
The book it sits over there on that chair. Do I pick it up or do I stay over here? Do I flip through it for my disgrace or check the margin for my second place?
It says it all from the rise to the fall. The book of scars, fast cars, white knuckles and bars. The Ex's and the 0's. The years I was broke. The enviable hope. The undefeatable one.
Born to love, but never to fight. The son born into the morning light. The fallen and the given up. The rising and the standing up. The friend and the brother, to the sinning and the others.
That book that sits over there on that there chair. It's the book of me, my love, my life and my despairs. My ups and downs and all arounds and the things I hide upstairs.
It's my life full of loves, my first fill of joy and here's to an million more. The story to come of a kind old man, with a story of forgiveness and life turned around and you get what you put in. A time and a place where he found his grace and became a stand up man. An ending to be enviable of, as he entered the promised land".
