There is something I want to say
I take a softer line yet I can’t stay
Lonely, I so need a sway…
There is something I’m scared to face
It makes me increase my pace
I’m a soul chimed with no ace.
Wish she’ll play my soundless noise; for
There is something I like her to hear
Rhythms drumming hard, orchestra playing together;
Not beats but a listener missing…
There is something my mouth dare not speak clear
Sounding like a broken record if played
Right in here, deep within, my heart speaks clear.
