The Book Of My Life

Written in inspiration of the song by Sting - The Book Of My Life. I heard it once, singing along to the lyrics, and hidden behind those letters, are the carefully written words of a poet, with experiences, good and bad, that shaped his life. But doesn't that happen to all of us? Once your life is over, all the small decisions you made, all the fights you had, all the mistakes you gave in to, they create your path, past and present. Would you have ended up exactly where you are right this moment, if it wasn't for a reason? This song writes about it all, and I hope to do so as well.
A tribute to a highly beloved performer - Sting.

1. Inspiration

Let me watch by the fire and remember my days

And it may be a trick of the firelight

But the flickering pages that trouble my sight

Is a book I'm afraid to write

 

It's the book of my days, it's the book of my life

And it's cut like a fruit on the blade of a knife

And it's all there to see as the section reveals

There's some sorrow in every life

 

If it reads like a puzzle, a wandering maze

Then I won't understand 'til the end of my days

I'm still forced to remember

Remember the words of my life

 

There are promises broken and promises kept

Angry words that were spoken, when I should have wept  

There's a chapter of secrets, and words to confess

I f I lose everything that I possess

There's a chapter on loss and a ghost who won't die

There's a chapter on love where the ink's never dry

There are sentences served in a prison I built out of lies.

 

Though the pages are numbered

I can't see where they lead

For the end is a mystery no-one can read

In the book of my life

 

There's a chapter on fathers a chapter on sons

There are pages of conflicts that nobody won

And the battles you lost and your bitter defeat,

There's a page where we fail to meet

 

There are takes of good fortunes that couldn't be planned

There's a chapter on god that I don't understand

There's a promise of Heaven and Hell but I'm damned if I see

 

Though the pages are numbered

I can't see where they lead

For the end is a mystery no-one can read

In the book of my life

 

Now the daylights returning

And if one sentence is true

All these pages are burning

And all that's left is you

 

 

Though the pages are numbered

I can't see where they lead

For the end is a mystery no-one can read

In the book of my life
