lyrics

Staring at the Ceiling
thinking of the past
I want to hear you where I
heard you last
a brush of nothing and I
feel you near
A phantom lover I can
Almost hear

And the world is grey
In a sky gone dark
huddled in a corner sheltering a spark
as a storm front grows
And the sky is bleak
in a world as
black as my sin
and it's my sin but I won't give in
when the storm front comes

Pacing in a room tearing at the walls
Where we both lived and we once
had it all
peeling back paper
til my fingers bleed
Looking for a layer that's still
You and me

And the world is grey
In a sky gone dark
huddled in a corner sheltering a spark
as a storm front grows
And the sky is bleak
in a world as
black as my sin
and it's my sin but I won't give in
when the storm front comes

Memories turning
spooling to the floor
awash in feelings I have
felt before
My worst regrets will never
bring you back
Talking to your ghost will never
fill my lack

And the world is grey
In a sky gone dark
huddled in a corner sheltering a spark
as a storm front grows
And the sky is bleak
in a world as
black as my sin
and it's my sin but I won't give in
when the storm front comes

Staring at the ceiling
Looking at the walls
I want to hear you we once
had it all
Pacing in a room
Thinking of the past
I'll breathe you in and try to
Make it last

And the world is grey
In a sky gone dark
huddled in a corner sheltering a spark
as a storm front grows
And the sky is bleak
in a world as
black as my sin
and it's my sin but I won't give in
when the storm front comes

and it's my sin but I won't give in
when the storm front comes

about

Char MacKay Spokane, Washington

I’ve been writing and performing songs at conventions since 1995. Through The Door is a collection of some of the most popular songs, inspired by authors (like Lois McMaster Bujold) TV (Star Trek, Game of Thrones), gaming, and general silly things like nursery rhymes and my take on the world. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoyed writing them. ... more
