memories

i cannot sing

i cannot dance

i cannot love

 

when i open my mouth

i remember

when i open my heart

i remember

when i move my feet

i remember

 

how my voice was ripped

out of my throat

how the trust was torn

out of my heart

how i was knocked down

to my knees

when i tried to dance

 

oh how shall i ever learn to love

when the memory of pain

makes my song of love become a dirge

the memory of fear

makes my dancing feet begin to run

 

no

i shall never sing

no

i shall never dance

no

i shall never love

again
