Lyrics

A Walk in the Park

Written By: Neil Leicester

when I awoke yesterday
to watch the world melt away
then I saw the child fall out of open arms
all because you're alone in your mind.
Sell your soul for a smile
deplete that source to stock the pile
It's not a sign on the wall or a bridge with a path, it's the one thing that I'll never have.
It's not a reason to die when you can't be content, or the dying wish you've never spent.
It's not a walk in the park when you can't figure out, you're the one thing I can't live without.
It's not a place where you lie with the clouds for a house, then you climb right back to fall while
I had it all
and I don't want it anymore
