Under a lovers gaze stoic and stubborn
I fight for you,
in watchful waiting the power of my mind
spurs me on…
The tiredness of these determined efforts for you,
to strive is hard to do.
With strength needed as not to succumb
I walk on and on,
for there can never be amongst this pain
nothing left for you ?
Don’t ever think I do not clearly see
for if only my eyes could shut out all,
to mar, inflict distress, destroy the purity of,
impair, fatally ruin – All this !
Through my smiles, the anguish of my heart,
flows in time with this wretched beast
as it continues it’s wicked path.
Under my lovers gaze, I fight for you.
*“There is freedom within
There is freedom without
try to catch the deluge in a paper cup,
there’s a battle ahead, many battles are lost”
*Extract from the Song “Don’t Dream Is Over” by Crowded House Written by Neil Finn 1987
