SHATTERED TRUST

WAS LOOKING FOR SOMEONE
TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND
NO LONGER A BOY
NOT QUITE A MAN..
WISHING TO THE SKY
DREAMS OF AN ANGEL
SHE ERASES ALL THE SCARS
SHE CAME TO ME
WAS IT INSIDE A DREAM
SWEET, SWEET WENDY
'TAKE ME AWAY' I SCREAM

EVERYNIGHT
WE'D STEAL AWAY
TWO DOORS DOWN I'D WAIT..
HAD TO BE THIS WAY
WITHOUT HER PARENT'S SAY
TOO OLD TO REMEMBER THE DAYS.

WAS IT THE BLACK LEATHER
OR THE LONG HAIR?
EVERYONE LOOKING DOWN
BUT SHE DIDN'T CARE.

TO RUNAWAY WAS THE PLAN
WE'D FINALLY MAKE A STAND
NO MORE MYSTERY...
I LOOKED INTO HER EYES
ONE LAST KISS GOODBYE
THEY TOOK HER AWAY FROM ME.

ASHES TO ASHES...DUST TO DUST
LOOK WHAT'S LEFT OF US...
SHATTERED TRUST.

MY LIFE IS HOLLOW
ONLY MEMORIES REMAIN
ONE BULLET TOOK HER AWAY
LEFT ME WITH THE PAIN..
WOUNDS MAY HEAL
LEFT TO LIVE WITH THE SCARS
RIPPING EVERYNIGHT
TEARING MY SOUL APART..

SHATTERED TRUST...

NOTE:
THIS SONG WAS WRITTEN ABOUT 2 KIDS WHO 
USED TO SNEAK OUT AND SEE MY BAND.
HE WAS 16, SHE WAS 15. HE HAD LONG HAIR,
WORE THE LEATHER, AND HER PARENT'S
WOULDN'T ACCEPT HIM, REFUSED TO LET
THEM DATE. SO SHE USED TO SNEAK OUT 
HER BEDROOM WINDOW AND MEET HIM.
ONE NIGHT THEY DECIDED TO RUNAWAY
AND LIVE THIER LIVES TOGETHER. 
WHILE SNEAKING BACK IN THE WINDOW,
HE FATHER, MISTAKING HER FOR A BURGLER,
SHOT AND KILLED HER.
(DEDICATED TO ERIC AND WENDY)

THE BRIDE WORE BLACK

STARING INTO HER MIRROR
NO REFLECTION DOES SHE SEE
BETRAYED BY THE WORLD
BUT NEVER BY ME
PIECES OF A SHATTERED HEART
NOW LAY AT HER FEET
A LIFETIME OF HAPPINESS
NOW NOT MEANT TO BE

IT'S HER ONLY WORLD
AND TONIGHT IT'S BLACK...

HER BODY IT BEGS
TO BE HELD ONCE AGAIN
HER MIND SCREAMS FOR SANITY
AND THIS HELL TO END
HER EYES HAVE SEEN
FACELESS LOVERS IN THE NIGHT
A SOULMATE IS WHAT SHE BEGS
TO MAKE EVERYTHING ALLRIGHT
SHE WISHES ON THE STARS 
SHE SOMETIMES FEELS THE FOOL
SHE CLOSES HER EYES
AND OPENS HER ARMS..
BEGGING TO GET THRU

IT'S HER ONLY WORLD
MEMORIES RUSH BACK
HER ONLY WORLD IS BLACK
AND TONIGHT...
THE BRIDE WEARS BLACK

LIVING IN THE DARK

LOOK INTO MY EYES
TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE
DO YOU SEE ALL THE EMPTINESS
ALL THE SHATTERED DREAMS
DO YOU SEE THE WASTED TEARS
ALL THE PAIN FILLED CRIES
FACELESS VICTIMS OF LIFE
CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT IT MEANS
CAN YOU TELL ME WHY...

FOOL~ CAN YOU TELL ME I'M WRONG?
FOOL~ FOOLED YOURSELF TOO LONG..

LOOK INTO MY HEART
TELL ME WHAT YOU HEAR
DO YOU HEAR THE CRIES OF PAIN
LOSING SOMEONE SO DEAR
CAN YOU EXPLAIN ALL THE LIES
CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT I FEEL
WHEN I LOOK INTO THEIR EYES
AND TELL ME WHAT IS REAL...

FOOL~ CAN YOU TELL ME I'M WRONG?
FOOL~ FOOLED YOURSELF TOO LONG...

LOOK BACK INTO TIME
TELL ME HOW TO BELIEVE
TO TRUST IN THEIR WORDS
WHEN THEY ONLY DECIEVE..

DREAMING IN BLACK..
LIVING IN THE DARK
YOUR WHOLE LIFE IN BLACK
DREAMING IN BLACK...
