Haunting Electric Piano, Cello and Viola, frame this story of love, innocence and heartbreak.
A Cool September Evening:
It was a cold September evening. Late and tired we found a warm place to rest. We tried to hold on, but they were against us. Screaming, ranting and threats set the tone.
We were cast out into the cold, unprepared for what came next. Our efforts fell short, patience grew thin, evil raised its ugly head.
Then there was a ray of light, new life, new love, new beginning. But it was not enough, the screaming, ranting and threats became louder. There was no forgiveness, no compassion, no hope.
The die had been cast, lost opportunities and unhappiness were all that was left. Our lives took different paths, the chasm grew deeper as the years past.
You were the innocent one, born into this world without a voice. Heartache, heartbreak, feelings you could not resolve. It was not easy, torn between two worlds, battered with insanity.
This makes it easy to blame others, easy to avoid taking responsibility for yourself. The truth is hard to hear and even harder to believe.
Despite all of the challenges and setbacks, your destiny is yours to make, yours alone. Stories are just that, stories, but if you repeat them enough times, you will believe they are true.
What's left remains elusive.
