Oh, it was beautiful When I had but you to fill When I was one part shadow Two parts echo A gecko on the walls of your heart Through your halls I roamed Silent from the start Quiet till the end I called you home I called you friend I was hauntingly unaware Of [...]
I am waiting for the stars to lead me Away from this late night double-feature But I just can’t get these scars to leave me Our time was too short For me to realise That a five-star last resort Was all I was to you I should have been the wiser I should have seen [...]
Ek het ons storie geskryf Met ‘n lem op my lyf Die son was te helder daai dag Vir my hartklop om langer vir joune te wag. Ek het die mes soos ‘n kwas vas gehou En diep snye geskilder – ‘n van Gogh vir jou. Ons verhaal het verskyn Op my vel – lyn [...]
Hold me like a promise; Break me like a vow. For today I am as fragile as the secrets of a child, And as desperate as a dream dressed in dust.
