"Inspired by" by Kevin Murray


Kevin Murray - 2011-11-09

 

Inspired by

This is where the faceless stay
A town where dreams blow away
Sewn with desperation
And no hint of inspiration
Where's my ticket out of here?

Between the crowded streets I find
A whisper echo through my mind
That fear is just a symptom of a dying breed
This place is dangerous
Oh so contagious

In a town of shadows and silhouettes
A jet-black body called Juliet
Shoves me to the door
She says get out while you've got the chance
Go find a stage
Go find romance
Everyone wants to be famous for a while

I knew that time will replace
Missed opportunities of those broken years
This road outside still lit with flames
I'm sure this mask will fit this time
I know I'll never go back to where I was before

In a town of shadows and silhouettes
A jet-black body called Juliet
Shoved me to the door
She said get out while you've got the chance
Go find a stage
Go find romance
Everyone wants to be famous for a while

Now it's been two years since I left
And everything has changed
From people longing to be heard
to people with too much to say
I'll often miss that place I was before
Having time to kill
Now time's only killing me
Need to stay alive
for now
Sit back and wait for Juliet to arrive

In a town of shadows and silhouettes
A jet-black body called Juliet
Shoved me to the door
She said get out while you've got the chance
Go find a stage
Go find romance
Everyone wants to be famous for a while
