My Pretty Little Demon

Written By: Lyle Pegg

Lurking in my shadow,
The voice is quite at home.
Exposing all my flaws,
To the body it now owns.

Lies naively purchased
Are bought and paid in shame,
Locked up in my room
With a demon I can’t tame.

My pretty little demon,
Noticed only by a few.
Hidden by the layers,
That shelter this taboo.

Disguising my appearance,
The others never see
All the things you’ve done
To steal this life from me.

And he says,
“Little girl
Come walk with me.”
“Little girl,
Come take my hand.”
“Little girl,
Just follow me,
And I promise,
I will make you beautiful.”

For the quiet of the evening
Is when you make your call.
And escort me in silence,
To my Cinderella Ball.

Though the dance has no feeling;
The kiss is never kind;
My soul is left abandoned,
In pieces left behind.

I just want to be beautiful.
I just want to be beautiful.

My pretty little demon,
Tell me what you see.
Tell me what I need to hear.
Deceive and lie to me.

You pretty little demon,
Show me what you see.
You live inside my mind.
Say, “you’re beautiful” to me.

And he says,
“Little girl
Come walk with me.”
“Little girl,
Come take my hand.”
“Little girl,
Just follow me,
And I promise,
I will make you beautiful.”

And what becomes of who I was,
And what I’ve come to be?
Unhappiness and loneliness
Are the virtues left to me.

The mirror will soon reveal
A stranger never seen.
Provided life continues on,
To live this demon’s dream.

And he says,
“Little girl
Come walk with me.”
“Little girl,
Come take my hand.”
“Little girl,
Just follow me,
And I promise,
I will make you beautiful.”

I just want to be beautiful.
I just want to be beautiful.

Hazy Sun

Written By: Lyle Pegg

I woke up this morning to a hazy sun
Not quite as bright as the other ones
Rubbed my eyes but it’s still not clear
Why no one holds it quite so dear
It was just a hazy sun

I realized this morning I was a hazy son
Not quite as bright as the other ones
All the things that I’ve tried to be
Turns out the hazy sun was me
I was just a hazy sun
I was the hazy son

I went to bed with a cloudy moon
Seems it rose a bit too soon
Watched it come into my room
Got to see the shadows bloom
From just a cloudy moon

Bright lights
Dark nights
They’re all the same to me
Cloudy skies
They paralyze
The things that I could be

I walked out to greet the day
Had to listen to the neighbors say
With that hazy son it’s just not clear
I think its something we should fear
It was just a hazy sun

I rubbed my eyes but I’m still here
Suddenly the moon grew near
The clouds had passed but I can see
The hazy sun was still with me
I’m just a hazy son

It was just a hazy sun
Same as the other ones
Not quite as bright
But try as I might
I’m still a hazy sun

Tried to be anyone
Wanted to be someone
Other than
just a hazy sun
