My Ballad of Love

My Ballad of Love

Sunk in my chair
Wondering what to do
Thought I’d write
But all I can think of is you
Trying to find some words
I decide to change the view

So I turn my chair the other way round
Now I can see outside my window
From the sky to the ground
The picture in my eyes leaves me spellbound

Nor heaven or hell has been at peace tonight
Seems like the gods are up for a fight
In this dark, mysterious land-
Hey…!! I call out..someone throw me a light.

Could someone tell me
What’s going on
Why is it raining in holy March
Why do the winters seem to go on and on…??

The clouds seem dark and laden with rain
Like a broken heart oozing with pain
Thunder they strike every now and then
The way hell struck me-dunno how and when

I keep standing alone underneath these skies
Trying to make out, the truth from the lies
The truth that’ll lead me
To your beautiful eyes.

The rain keeps falling
My tears keep rolling
Oh can’t you hear me baby
My heart is calling..

Yes I need you
I need you baby
My mind is dead
My heartbeat’s crazy
I’ve got my words on the ledge
Just need a shove
Come and lend your voice baby
To my ballad of love

These words I think
I’ve got them to rhyme
Just like the two of us
They’ll get better with time

On this old paper
My words lie burning
Picking up new meanings
As my thoughts keep churning
In my lonely presence
I hear them yearning-
They yearn for music
They yearn for voice
All we can do is wait for you
Got no choice..

And so the rain keeps falling
My tears keep rolling
Oh can’t you hear me baby
My heart is calling..

Yes I need you-
I need you baby
My mind is dead
My heartbeat’s crazy

I’ve got my words on the ledge
Just need a shove
Come and lend your voice baby
To my ballad of love.

I’ve waited all my life
Will wait for one more
You’re the only one I’ll ever love
That’s one thing for sure

No matter if the sky falls down
Don’t care if the earth sinks in
I’ll wait by your house in my car
Hoping someday you’ll climb in
‘Coz my heart’s the place you reside
It’s where you’ve always been..

The lamp’s still burning
My head keeps on turning
Bruised words keep bleeding out
As I’m still hurting

And so the rain keeps falling
My tears keep rolling
Oh can’t you hear me baby
My heart is calling

Yes I need you-
I need you baby
My mind is dead
My heartbeat’s crazy

I’ve got my words on the ledge,
Just need a shove
Come and lend your voice baby
To MY BALLAD OF LOVE…..
