Check out this wonderful new duet partner!
WRITTEN BY HARSH AND HASTYWORDS
I lived inside fuzzy dreams
Behind old shredded drapes
Held captive by irrationality
And broken by all my regrets
Darkness surrounded me,
And pain shattered my soul,
Yet, I stood there, powerless.
Hoping that someday, I’ll be happy.
But someday was a temptress
Dressed in holiday pirouettes
Dancing upon hopeful dreams
But fading as the clock ticks
The only hope I had now,
Was memory of halcyon days,
And the only way to escape,
Was to just run away.
Spinning through the vortex
Uncertain of choices to make
I ran until I couldn’t anymore
And destiny found me standing still

This was amazing. I love the way you use words, because words to me are a beautiful thing. 🙂
“Someday was a temptress” – I got chills. GREAT collaboration 😀
Fantastic duet! Your voices really meld together. This line – “But someday was a temptress/Dressed in holiday pirouettes” nailed it for me.
