Our Hearts

OUR HEARTS - Written by Carroll Bryant 


The size of my heart
Could never hold the amount of love
I feel for you

There's too many thoughts
For my head to hold
That my mouth just can't find
The words

My eyes are blind to the vision
Of you and me
But my soul feels all

My soul feels love

You dance in wonderment
Inside my illusions
And delusions
And dreams

You live in my moments
Time that you have stolen
Away from me

There's never an answer
To all of my questions
Just whispers clinging in mid air

You're too real for me to feel
Yet feel for you I do
I feel for you, all that is true

A tear from your eye
Is a dagger to my heart
Know this and you will know it all

A smile on your face, a laugh
Is what keeps me alive
Know this and I will know it all

Know this, and we shall know love
Love in its plain form
Is love that lives in both of

Our hearts!

World Of Torment

WORLD OF TORMENT - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Here, in the middle of seduction
You bring me to my knees
Convoluting all my fantasies

I often have difficulty saying what I know I should say
It never comes out of my mouth that way
It’s a dark world that keeps tormenting me

Take the money, it means less to me than what you think
Steal the words I write
Go ahead, what are you waiting for?

Often times I wonder what goes on through your mind
Is it me?
Is it him?
Is it her?
Is it just a lonely breeze from Madagascar?

Here, in the center of your attention
I crumble
Wilting like a weed

You clearly close your thoughts to me
Where do you run and hide from me?
And why can‘t you bring me along?

Take the memories, they have faded anyway
Borrow your time while I play
And drink the fine wine of Etruria

Often times I squander the pesos I find on the street
Is it free?
Is it me?
Is it us?
Is it just another town to travel to?

There is no unlocked door in the tormenting world I dwell
I see heaven
I hear hell

Voices that dampen out like a squelch from a bat
In the belfry of my heart
In an old Victorian love we made so long ago
Then destroyed with our abandonment

We both made that decision, didn’t we?

Tell me something that the wind doesn’t know
Something that will cause frost bite to my anguish
Whatever you do, don’t say that
That of what I know you want to reveal
I already know you love me
But your love is hate
I love to hate that about you
Like you love to hate that you love me

You never will tell me, I know it

Here, in the middle of seduction
You bring me to my tears
Mimicking my fantasies

In or out of my life, you make my world a wreck
You make my world a volcano
You make my world a world of torment

Mummified

MUMMIFIED - Written by Carroll Bryant 



In the heart of every man
There lives the soul of a woman
And in the truth of every night
She lives deep inside
Until the man is mummified

In the story of true lovers
They will define a new beginning
And in the touch of their life
They will be buried alive
Until their legend is mummified

Every song will have its bird
Every king a queen
Every sigh will just be heard
By the way that they hold, and their spirits are set free

In the heart of every man
There lives the fire of a woman
And in the front of his lonely eyes
She appears to him each night
And leaves the man so mummified

Not every wish was made to come true
Not every wind will blow
Not every thought will be pure and new
Sometimes she will stay, and sometimes she will go

Not every star was made for its shine
Not every hope so real
Not every moment lives in Divine
So much for the way a true heart can feel

In the heart of every man
There lives the soul of a woman
And in the truth of every night
She lives deep inside
Until the man is mummified

In the story of true lovers
They will define a new beginning
And in the touch of their life
They will be buried alive
Until their legend is mummified

And in a world that’s black and white
There’s a place they two can hide
Until they’re both so mummified
