October’s Eve

Breathlessly I waited amid the couples

For you who’d never leave my side

Who’d never harm me on the inside

But the wind laughs at me through the leaves

Waiting for someone who won’t come

It’s right, you won’t come

 

But what does it matter when the whole world’s in my hands

My world not tainted by society’s ideals

Not controlled by society’s idols

It’s just me, my dreams, and I

Alone on a October’s eve

 

Still, I can’t help but stay waiting

Why can’t I let go of this past?

Couples continuously test me

As I blend into the seams of the background

Just want is it that I want?

 

But what does it matter when the whole world’s in my hands

My world not tainted by society’s ideals

Not controlled by society’s idols

It’s just me, my dreams, and I

Alone on a October’s eve

 

That’s right, I waited and waited

But no one came

No one came for the damsel

The wind my only counsel

Laughing at my pathetic self

Stole my hopes away in its breeze

I stayed frozen, caught in its tease

 

But what does it matter when the whole world’s in my hands

My world not tainted by society’s ideals

Not controlled by society’s idols

It’s just me, my dreams, and I

Alone on a October’s eve

Still waiting for a ghost
