“Christmas Lights” – Pit

See…see how bright they are. See how they change their colors in the middle of the night…

See how they dance, how they bleed their cheerfulness to the rest of the world…

Can you see them?..

I hope that you can…

 

See…see how small and frail and beautiful they are…

Watch them climb up and down the tree, listen their cheery tune…

Can you hear them?..

I hope that you can…

 

See…see how my tears run down on my face…

See them carve their way to my lips, whispering your name in the empty room…

I wanted you to see these Christmas Lights…I wanted for us to see them together…

But you are not here…again…

When you said you would be, you still are not here…

 

And I waited, I waited for you to change your words…

I waited for you to see the truth behind my anger…

I hoped that you would understand, that you would change, that you would believe…

But you didn’t…

You didn’t feel me, you didn’t hear me, you didn’t see me…

 

When I just wanted to see the Christmas Lights…with you.
