First Night

She woke up one night

With an eternal loss, for an unknown gain

She looked at us with her bewildered eyes

While we were about to greet her goodnight

She sat on her tiny little grave and wept the pain away

(In the land of no disguise)

O Mama, can you hear me?

Can you hear me cry?

I went on to tell her

It wasn’t the same anymore

The night won’t let her escape to her Mama’s arms

But she was shaken to her core

A spirit’s first night…

I could see her pain

And a will to sustain, those tears her cheeks wore

So I offered her some beautiful flowers

Laid down to offer peace to the ones slain

On her tiny little grave, she wept, despite our gesture

(In the land of darkest hours)

O Mama, can you hear me?

Can you hear me cry?

I went on to tell her

It wasn’t the same anymore

The night won’t let her escape to her Mama’s arms

But she was shaken to her core

A spirit’s first night…

She looked at our faces with a hint of doubt

With the brightest smile we wanted to see

With the innocence she was all about

She asked the toughest question to me

Oh, why can’t my Mama hear me cry?

Why won’t she hear me cry?

The land of roses…

All these years I ran from myself

They seem so wrong, all of a sudden

As you walk me back to my heart, to my lost self

The journey’s as beautiful as the destination

As beautiful as the hand that takes me through

I owe everything to the road that led me to you.


Now I see in the new light you show

You can help me find my dream

For I lost it in some battle I fought ages ago

I found myself both the culprit and the victim

Can  you find me a home in your loving eyes?

A haven for the heart you mesmerize.


I can put everything at stake

To have you by my side forever

All that I desire are those sweet moments you make

Every second you spend with me is worth fighting for

You’ve made enough to help us last here

Enough to take down everything we fear.


Just let me weep in your embrace

I need you through all that I face

Together, we can clean all the blood

From the land of roses.
