Peace and Quiet – Written Thursday 17th February 2005 (Aged 29)

Peace and Quiet

you know,
i only want a place inside
a place to live
that means no more closing the eyes
how can i thank you
what you give is beyond measure
it is true
it is my greatest treasure
i only want a touch
of some mild success
where this potential –
does not got to waste
you know, i love your pretty face
and to be loved by you,
always means first place
but help me,
find myself inside
find a little peace and quiet
without closing my eyes
