For The First Time

[V1]
You showed your face for the first time
I saw you in my mirror
I saw the devil from my dreams
He was laughing at me
He's haunted my mind forever
In his face I feel my terror
He will come crawling in the night
Spitting his venom at me.

[V2]
You showed your face for the first time
I saw you in my mirror
I saw the devil from my heart
He was laughing at me
He's haunted my soul forever
In his voice I feel my terror
He will come crawling in the night
Spitting his venom at me.

[Chorus]
You feed from my fear
You ignore my tear
You torture my soul
Won't let me feel whole

[V3]
You showed your face for the first time
I saw you in my mirror
I saw the devil from my fears
He was laughing at me
He's haunted my dreams forever
In his eyes I feel my terror
He will come crawling in the night
Spitting his venom at me.

[Chorus]
You feed from my fear
You ignore my tear
You torture my soul
Don't let me feel whole

[Bridge]
The sound of distant thunder is in my soul
My whole life I've spent, crawling out of this hole
I feel pain, I hurt, I cry,
Some days, I just wanna give in and die
My eyes see darkness no one should see
Fear takes me down further than I want to be
I feel pain, I hurt, I cry,
Some days I, just wanna give in and die
I hear the distance echo round in my mind
Spinning in circles, cycling cruel and unkind
I feel lost, I ache, I scream,
Some days, I just wanna kill my dreams
Forever fighting to cling to life
Live my life forever in constant pain and strife
I feel lost, I ache, I scream,
Some days, I just wanna kill my dreams

[Chorus]
You feed from my fear
You ignore my tear
You torture my soul
Don't let me feel whole

[V4]
You showed your face for the first time
I saw you in my mirror
I saw the devil from my past
he was laughing at me
He's haunted my life forever
In his smile I feel my terror
He will come crawling in the night
Spitting his venom at me

Hi Jane these are super lyrics,I'l have a try with this and"Mirror Mirror",and see what I come up with.Don't lose heart if you don't get much response at first,takes a while for people to notice you,also you can put requests in the shoutbox to check out your lyrics. have a look at the forum post by "Tu",who has also posted lyrics(one of them I did an acoustic track of it).hope this helps.

Thank you. I might still have a mountain to climb musically but I only post here lyrics that to me seem musical. I do hope people will look into them and find some beauty. I am so flexible about word change, etc. If I could I would try to put some of my lyrics to music, but I am not competent yet to do that. One day I will get there. Thank you for the encouragement. xx
