Lyrics

Been a While

Written By: Ariel Simone

BEEN A WHILE
It’s been a while my friend
And I come with eyes cast down.
Been on a wayward bend
And I’m back to dusty ground.
There’s something missing in my heart
And there’s a void in my soul
Down, down in that place where you belong
It’s been a while my friend
it’s been a while my friend
Darkness void a piece
Lingering in every crease
I forfeit all the glory
That forced you to flee
---------------------------
Shine your light on me

Arise

Written By: Ariel Simone

ARISE
Your taking off my skin
Tempting my toes with your horizon
But the winter that left a scar
Forbids the beginning
But this time to tempting is the dawn
To reminisce what is gone
Be what it may - all i’ve to tell
But if held to dearly, in the past we’ll dwell
Arise, my darling
My beautiful one
Come with me, see the winter is past
The rains are over and gone
Darkness dines with the dawn
The season of singing has come
My lover spoke and said to me
Arise my darling, my beautiful one
You were the stumbling stone,
My skin to stretched to fit your bones
The past I ponder, this pride
Forbids the beginning
But this time to tempting is the dawn
To reminisce what is gone
Be what it may - call it rebel
But if held to dearly, in the past we’ll dwell

Sack Of Sad

Written By: Ariel Simone


Sought in my sack of sad
Was just an empty bag
No i had nothing left to cry about
One moment i went mad
Missing my old friend sad
No i had nothing left to cry about
You’ve gone and done me a dilemma
Took all my problems away
Left me not much in the mirror
You took the taint, now time to paint me new before I beg back blues
-----------------------------------------
Hit me hear the hollow rebound
Emptied of identity
Knock and you’ll know how nothing sounds
The only tongue I talk tied with the tears you took away

Don't Let The Devil Get You Down

Written By: Ariel Simone

Baby don't do that dirty believ’n
You know we wont win if flirty with fleeting
I know that bully’s been beat’n and bitch’n
But baby we gotta better ammunition
Grab your gun
Put your finger on the trigger baby don’t you run
And when you see the sun
Reinforce your figure then you’ll know you’ve won
Don’t let the devil get you down
Don’t let that bully beat you around
Don’t dare believe a word he says
You hold your head up and stand your ground
Think on what is true
The devil ain’t got nothing on you
Devil don’t do that dirty deciev’n
Your bullshit babble I wont be believ’n
You might win one upon your insistence
But your forced to flee in my resistance
Grab your gun
Put your finger on the trigger baby don’t you run
And when you see the sun
Gett’n brighter gett’n bigger then you’l know you’ve won
