WHERE AM I NOW

 

WHERE AM I NOW

 

IN A WORLD OF LOST SOULS

AND DREAMS

AND LIVES

GONE BY

 

WHERE AM I NOW

 

FORGOTTEN

AS THE PAST

AS THE LIVES

AND LOVES

AND FANCIES

HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN

 

SO WHERE AM I NOW

 

LOST

AS THE FATE TO THE WIND

AS THE WISHES OF A MIND WITHNO PLACE

AS THE LIFE OF A MAN WITH NO PURPOSE

NO ESSENCE OF BEING

NO FEELING OF BEEN

JUST THE OPEN VOID OF EMPTY NOTHINGNESS

ONCE FILLED WITH THE WANTS

AND NEEDS

AND DESIRES

THAT WERE BORN OF ME

 

BUT WHERE AM I NOW

 

HIDDEN TO ME ARE THE SIGHTS

AND SOUNDS

AND SENSATIONS

OF THE REALITIES OF VISION

 

WHERE I WAS

WHERE I ONCE LIVED

WHERE SMELLS COULD BE FELT

AND SOUNDS COULD BE SEEN

AND LIGHT HAD A LIFE OF ITS OWN

 

THAT IS WHERE I WAS

 

BUT WHERE AM I NOW

 

I SEE JUST THE WORLD

AND THE PEOPLE WITH THEIR FACES

THAT SEE ONLY ME

I KNOW THE COLD OF WINTER

AND THE HEAT OF SUMMER

I WATCH THE DARKNESS OF NIGHT

AND SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY

BUT I BREATHE NO MORE THE MUSIC OF EACH SEASON

AND NO LONGER DOES THE DAYLIGHT CREATE NEW WORLDS

AND THE NIGHTLIGHT WHISPER TO ME THE SECRETS OF LIFE

 

SO SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME

 

WHERE AM I NOW
