Secret place

Reprise

Take me there
Whenever I’m sad
Leave me alone
If my pain is too heavy
And then, in my bank
I’ll just listen to the wind
That blows my hair
The sea has the power
To heal my wounds
The fresh grass
Gives me ground
Don’t worry if I’m lost
One day, I will be found.

Sometimes I’m so afraid of the world
Every tiny little thing can hurt me
Sensitive and scared
Tired and frustrated
I need time
My body is resting
And my words keep silent
In an effervescent mind
Please, don’t wake me up
I’m not ready wet.

The abusive love is villain
It flows through your veins
And drowns your heart
Tearing us apart
Saying « I’m sorry »
With hustle and flurry
Isn’t a weakness
But a strength covered by sweetness
Whispering « forgive me »
Will set you free
Open your eyes
And start dating the beauty
The whole universe cries
For those who are too snooty
Ignore the hate, let your fears flow
Unwrap your ego
Pride is more than a sin
Is dancing with the evil and sing
A sad and spiteful melody
Once you silence your whims
You’ll find the light that beams
And guides you through the path to serenity.

If I could turn back time
I would do exactly the same my friend
Great expectations around the corner
We accepted everything, except the orders
Release your fears
It’s time to wipe your tears
We are bonded…forever
And I know that life can only be better
Trust and hope walk side by side
Feeling free and staying alive
Is the best way to kill time
Dreams can be real sometimes.

The dark side

Don’t show me your bright face
I’ve seen it already
Don’t share only your dreams
I’d rather prefer if you confess your griefs
Don’t pretend what you are not
With me, you can be honest
Don’t hide your fears
Together we will face them
Don’t cry in silence
You are beautiful even when you are sad
Don’t be afraid
I’ll never judge you
Don’t push me away
I’m here to stay
Don’t reject love
Because ours will never die.

Undress my soul
Unwrap my body
Take me as whole
Our love is groggy
Release me from my fears
Accept all my tears
Those I’ve already cried
And the ones that will arrive
One day… Who knows?
Eventually
Life is a mystery
Meanwhile, let’s just pretend
We’ll stay together
Today, tomorrow, forever.

How do you feel today?
I feel tired, anxious, weird, afraid and lonely
Fair enough…You’re experiencing a new situation

But be reasonable
Concentrate on good things

You’re alive and healthy
You have a roof above your head
You may dance in the kitchen if you want to
You have food
You have water to drink and also to take a shower
You have lot’s of toilet paper!
You have internet connection, a smartphone, a PC and a television
You have books, maybe some of them you don’t even knew they were there
You have friends and family
You have time

So, how do you feel today?
Grateful!
