Queen of Hearts

He picked me up at sunset
He let me drive him wild
Feelings on fire; Alive
I laid out all my cards
Upon the empty table
He wanted all but one
The queen of hearts
Lonely woman she was
A priceless card
A worthy prize
Too young he was to realize
None of the cards he picked
Would ever belong to him
Without first protecting the queen
The queen of hearts

The Road

I knelt on the double yellow lines 
The crescent moon shining on my face
The tears kept falling
Dripping to the ground
All over the place
The pains pierced me like I’d been shot 
Not once or twice
Tiny bullets beneath my skin 
All over my body—everywhere
I was a grand sin
One immense mistake
Two roads forged into one where I lay
Under the snowfall without the light of day
No sun to warm my body
No love to absorb my pain
Quiet as my thoughts that drove me insane
Just the street and I that winter night as well as the moon
