Side Note
© Jason Paul Johnston

My deepest lines ~ are not contrived They point to who ~ I am inside

Skirting through the blockades ~ wrestling with the Ghost

They turn and twist to penetrate ~ revealing what’s hidden most

The truest mask ~ that I can wear
Is one that bears ~ a naked tear
A flash of fleshly colour ~ before I turn away
And dim the lights down slowly ~ so I just fade to grey
But I could let the walls down slowly
And I could peel facades back wholly ~ If you want me to
You’ll have to take your arms and hold me
And feel my pulse, and whisper softly ~ If you want me too

Just wading through ~ so many tears They make it hard ~ to see past the fears
Consumed with my own ego ~ till ID overcomes
I’m left here overwhelmed now ~ but feeling quite alone

Chorus (...but do I want to....)
But the words that I hear they sing out loud and clear

Move a little closer baby
Come to me, not by sight, follow my voice, follow the light
I'll Try to keep the ...
1x ~ cause you want me to
2x ~ cause you love me too
