Discards

——- DISCARDS
Despite it being our last time, your mouth still smiles the same.
But the tears in your eyes, betray your inner pain.
I know you’re tired don’t-close your eyes, stay-with-me – don’t fall asleep.
Reminisce about-old-times, though you’re exhausted and so weak.
Softly – hold you in my arms – my sweet.

Tears welled-up in your eyes betray: Your inner pain;
our last time here together. But you’re smiling just the same.
our last time here together. Still you’re smiling my way / away the pain / just the same.

Exhausted, fighting heavy eyes, stay-with-me – don’t fall asleep.
I’ll talk about past-and-better times – knowing the future’s bleak.

You’re leaving on a journey, which I can’t come along,
where this noise and your pain will – soon be all gone.
You’re still smiling, but so scared.
Eyes now frightened and so scared.
paralysed, traumatised, helpless and distressed.
Feel I’m watching all this happen on a television set.

Tears betray unspoken: Your inner pain;
our last time here together. Still you smile delight my way.
Exhausted breathing heavy eyes, (but-)stay-with-me – don’t fall asleep.
while I talk about past-better times – ignoring a future bleak.
Fill the air with better times, ignoring the future’s

Time ticks away our time (here), still you smile delight my way.
Seconds tick away our lifetime
your world of agony and torment will – leave you alone / soon be all gone.
Still) smiling, but frightened eyes

Ignoring sad, bleak future, talk instead} happy mem’ries
Ignoring sad, bleak future, think and talk} happy mem’ries

Let me – hold you in my arms – my sweet.
I’m going to talk about old times, though you’re so weak.
I know you’re tired so close your eyes, go your way – just fall asleep.
still whispering ’bout memories, though you can’t hear.

Let’s ignore the sad, bleak future, breathe you} / whisper} happy memories.
or think about the future just the memories we breathe.

Relentless}ly time ticks away our lifelines, still you} smile delight my way
Welling} tears betray unspoken, laying-bare} your inner pain.
Exhaus}ted, tired, heavy eyes, (but-)stay-with-me – don’t sleep

Relentless}ly time ticks away our lifelines, but your smile delights my way
laying-bare your inner pain recent tears have betrayed.
Unspoken I see exhaustion in your eyes, (but-)stay-with-me – don’t sleep
or think about the future just whisper memories we breathed.

our last time here together, but you smile because I came / you’re bright smile doesn’t wane.
