Is there somewhere?




Eyes that are as unforgiving as a thousand seas
She’s struggling to let the words escape
For behind that plastered smile on her face
Lies another universe of reality.


And she whispers three shattering words.


Is there somewhere?
The kids on the bus will leave her alone
And her hair will fall perfectly like the actress’ on T.V
A place where bliss will touch her heart,


A place where she will be eternally free?


“Little bird, don’t you worry”
The old lady’s voice echoes into the void.
Y’know the world’s a dark and cold-blooded place
It took your parents and tore them to pieces
But I won’t let it take you the same way.


And she tucks the girl in to kiss the bruises on her face
As the sun goes down and the cold settles in
The moonlight lulling over her pale, wrinkled skin
And she’s staring at the constellations again


Is there someplace, somewhere?
She’ll be dancing in his loving arms.
And they’ll skip pebbles across the lake like the good old days,
Before he was consumed by the callous of the storm.


Is there somewhere so dazzling, so bright?
Where the birds will sing till their hearts’ content
The clouds will never conceal the beauty of the moon
And the music of the rain will be euphoric to the soul.


Sweet little one, don’t you shed another tear
I heard there is a There, it’s quite beautiful indeed
And before the angels come to take me away

I’ll make sure your wings carry you to that place.
