Lyrics

Riddle

Written By: Moon Shine Blue

He’s riddled with questions, but the answers don’t seem to be on hand.
With time catching up, he fears he might never fully understand.
His hand his pen racing swiftly sorting quickly through the reasons why.
A time a choice shallow breath yields no voice, no time for the reasons why.
Stray thoughts lay dormant, undetected filling corners of his mind eluding his perception.
Kept out of sight, tucked away from the light for much too long convincing himself that they are gone.
Trying to figure this riddle out.
He goes around.
But his efforts have fallen short from his doubt.

Sometime

Written By: Moon Shine Blue

What a fool I can be, to ever give up on us.
To walk away from everything I am, just to say I’ve won.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned through the years babe, it’s that love don’t come easily.
I’ve got to be willing to give in rather than willing to run.
I’m sorry if I’ve given you that feeling, like everything’s at a loss.
I guess I didn’t realize how quickly I scared and how quickly I fought.

Three Wishes

Written By: Moon Shine Blue

Three wishes enough dreams to last a lifetime, why can’t I have one of my own?
You seem so lucky always granted what you want,
Do you have a wish you’d like to loan?
That may seem selfish, but there are plenty of selfish people, why do I have to be one?
You should be thankful never suffer from worries, look at me but what have I done?
Who’s the cause of all my pain and anguish?
Who’s the one that decides when I am right?
A shadow of darkness has been cast before me,
When will I find my way back to the light?
My memories of what I used to be seem so out of touch.
My memories have never seemed foolish, though to some they aren’t much.
I sit and wonder what it is I have to be,
But all I need to be is me.
So here I am right in front of you, you choose what you see.
No more pain, the decision was mine to make.
This shadow has been lifted,
I will walk with the daybreak.
