Don't Wake Me©

by Khanåda - May, 2004


I’ve been starving
So long starving
Now here you are
Like an oasis
I could eat you up
Consume you completely
Drink your water
Bite right into you
Make you forget your name
Make me forget myself
Take a long trip outside this reality
And fill myself with you

I don’t know who I was
Everything has changed
Life, death, love and God
Have all transformed for
Now I know more
I understand, if only just a little
And dreams I will no longer rely on
For dreams are only within me
And without you I am incomplete
I live and breathe you
If only for that moment
We are one

You take me places beyond
You drink me like milk
You hold on like life itself
There’s no escape
From the path we must take
Who’s to say where it will lead
For whether in this life
The life before or the next
There is no one like you
And I am consumed
No longer simply me
No longer alone

Don’t wake me
Don’t rouse me from this reality
Don’t let me dream again

Don’t wake me
Don’t rouse me
Don’t let me dream again

Haunting©

by Khanåda - May, 2004

Another long road
Another demanding day
Spread myself too thin
Thinking and faking
As the lights come up

You tend to haunt me
Like a ghost determined
To take my logic
And throw it to the wind

When we finally begin
Lights are fading
Traffic never stops
Voices never cease
And another day looms

You like to taunt me
Like a child determined
To take my sanity
And make me smile again

It’s amazing
How well you understand
Without you each task
Would be mundane
I would not want to wake

You bend to hold me
Like a tower of strength
Love to lean on
In times of madness

You tend to haunt me
Like a ghost determined
To take my logic
And throw it to the wind

No Sleep ©
by Khanåda - June, 2004

No sleep
I can’t stop thinking of you
Taking myself apart
For this drowning of my heart
How kind
your invasion of my mind.

No sleep
Tossing and turning for you
Tearing myself apart
For this drowning of my heart
Love you
It’s all I want to do

Rising and sinking
Over you
No sleep
So deep
Rising and sinking
Over you

No sleep
Longing to be wrapped in you
Taking myself apart
For this drowning of my heart
So true
How I long for you

Please come home...

Rising and sinking
Over you
No sleep
So deep
Rinsing and sinking
Over you
Rising
Over you
Sinking
Over you…

I Took Your Picture©
by Khanåda - June, 2004

I took your picture
And saw in your eyes
A tainted past
Where wounds still last
What your daddy said
Has gone to your head

Release. Feel peace
For love has found you
My love will save you

I took your hand
You blessed my life
My tainted past
The wounds still last
But the words you said
Cleared my head

Release. Feel peace
For love has found you
My love will save you

He tore you up
And wore you down
You still feel the pain
But you’re not the same
You give so much
Heaven in your touch

My love, the pain has gone
The rain has cleared
And there’s nothing better
Than when we are one

Release. Feel peace
For love has found you
My love will save you
