The urges pressure the stillness of night.

Ambitions so alive

you could cut the tension with a knife.

Hands leary to make contact

trying so hard to hold everything back.

Emotions burn deep,

but love burns deeper .

That sparkle in your eyes

must be a keeper .

I've seen a lot of pretty faces ,

but most of them haven't seen me.

So when I think I may have a chance

i'll move a little closer secretly.

The things they said

put weight on my heart , a ton.

I wanted to tell what I inside I felt,

but I always had to hold my tongue.

Never stand up ,

Never speak up ,

why I've been so quiet

is a reason that has me stumped.

If I don't show

you won't know.

If I don't say

you'll go astray.

And that will be pain

attacking a heart

until it's torn,broken , and frayed.

I've seen a lot of pretty faces,

but most of them haven't seen me.

Because a man who feels everything

lives his life so wrecklessly.

Someday maybe I will shine

a little hope on something,

but until then I'm waiting to be saved

from the awful sound of nothing.
