Banquo

This is the fifth song of my Something to Remind You project.

Turn that face away
Where tears have left scars in those eyes
Trace them all the way
From the lines on your cheeks to that cracked smile
No one’s gonna see, no one’s gonna feel
The pain I’ve left behind
In the warzone of a soul lies the wasteland of a heart
Even if you broke me, I tore you apart

When I close my eyes
I see you walking down the aisle
Feeling blue, draped in black
So beautiful in white
I’m the ghost, the Banquo by your side

Burn that fairy tale
On the pyre of a book read in the past
Love to no avail
Shouldn’t start, couldn’t stop, wouldn’t make it last
No one’s gonna see, no one’s gonna hear
The tears I made you cry
In the warzone of a soul lies the wasteland of a heart
Even if you broke me, I tore you apart

When I close my eyes
I see you walking down the aisle
Feeling blue, draped in black
So beautiful in white
I’m the ghost, the Banquo by your side

We were the devil and the dancer
The jester and the queen
Dark inside the light
Never to be seen

One more step my little dancer
Closer to the edge of the world
One more question I can’t answer
Closer to the edge of the world

Twist that knife around
Sever the cord, make the bones come crashing down
Shattered on the ground
Like memories in a trash can, left to rot, left to drown
No one’s gonna see, no one’s gonna heal
The wounds I left inside
In the warzone of a soul lies the wasteland of a heart
Even if you broke me, I tore you apart

When I close my eyes
I see you walking down the aisle
Feeling blue, draped in black
So beautiful in white
I’m the ghost, the Banquo by your side

When I close my eyes
I see you walking down the aisle
Feeling blue, draped in black
So beautiful in white
I’m the ghost, the Banquo by your side

I’m the ghost
I’m Banquo
I’m Banquo
Let me go
You’ll never let me go

Any thoughts you’d like to share?
