Lyrics

Like A Shakespearean Play

In the darkness of my mind
There is a book that I write
And beneath the covers
Lie tattered sheets of a broken life

Chorus:
Every page written in pain
I's dotted w/ a tear
T's crossed w/ a memory
Another chapter, you're not here
Blood tip calligraphic pen
Sprawled lines in the dark
Bleed words I can only send
To the dying depths of my heart
Tragedy of love on the stage
Like a Shakespearean play

And when you walked away
Each step embedded in my brain
Your heels left a mark
The damage was insane

Chorus:
Every page written in pain
I's dotted w/ a tear
T's crossed w/ a memory
Another chapter, you're not here
Blood tip calligraphic pen
Sprawled lines in the dark
Bleed words I can only send
To the dying depths of my heart
Tragedy of love on the stage
Like a Shakespearean play

Bridge:
Wish I could light a flame
Burn it up and walk away

Chorus:
Every page written in pain
I's dotted w/ a tear
T's crossed w/ a memory
Another chapter, you're not here
Blood tip calligraphic pen
Sprawled lines in the dark
Bleed words I can only send
To the dying depths of my heart
Tragedy of love on the stage
Like a Shakespearean play
