Lonesome Night

How many hearts have broken
under the gaze of your watchful eye?
When promises and vows that were taken
are based on deception and lies

How many prayers have been offered
as you rose so high in the sky?
Wishing this love would last forever
though tears slip from this beggar's eye

How many souls have wandered
forlorn under your knowing light?
Playing hide and seek with their emotions
-he loves me not, or maybe he might-

It was my heart that I gave you
as my soul howled to your light
His promises for now and forever
ended in the shadows of this lonesome night.
