What Remains

I don’t want my life to depend on this
Vulgar pleasantries, supposed happiness
Can’t I be content with just the two of us?

I don’t want my life to revolve around
what I continually lost, what I never found
I cannot be content with all the frills and the fuss

Because when I walk away
When the party lights fade
The emptiness remains
And I’m left wondering what’s real

All the shiny things hold my attention
while you wait starved for my affection
Can I not see your eyes contain all beauty?

Still I drive at night restless with my days
Allowing myself to suffocate in emotions haze
How long, oh Love, will you watch and wait for me?

Because when I walk away
When the world around me fades
The emptiness remains
And I’m left wondering what’s real
Because when I walk away
And the people always change
The desperation remains
And I’m left wondering what’s real

They tell me the pain will drive me closer to you
But if I do not show up at your welcome door
just what will you do?
Will you chase me down?
Will you chase me down?

Because when I walk away
When the prayers and worship fade
The questions remain
And I need you to be real
Because when I walk away
When the strength within me fades
The desperation remains
And I need you, still more
