Flowers Never Bend With The Rainfall





Through the corridors of sleep
Past shadows dark and deep
My mind answers and weeps in confusion

I don't know what is real
I can't touch what I feel
As I hide behind the shield of my illusion

So I continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end
And flowers never bend with the rainfall

The mirror on my wall
Casts an image dark and small
But I'm not sure at all it's my reflection

I'm blinded by the light
Of God and truth and right
And I wander in the night without direction

So I continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end
And flowers never bend with the rainfall

No matter if you're born to play the king or pawn
For the line is thinly drawn 'tween joy and sorrow
So my fantasy becomes reality
And I must be what I must be and face tomorrow

So I continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end
And flowers never bend with the rainfall
