The Sleeping Glory

Someone needs to wake me up
That, I'm really in need of
I thought I knew the rising sun but only before now
Is there a world around me anymore?

Someone needs to wake me up
I think my world is barred
When does the night elapse?
Before now I thought it should

Someone needs to wake me up
In my dreams maybe I'm long gone
Or maybe to you it seems
Yet I don't have to keep sleeping

Someone indeed needs to wake me up
Enough I know I have slept
Aching pains now come from my left
Where I lay all night

Can someone please wake me up?
I've pleaded till voice I have no more
Words but little
All that's left are my dwindling eyes

But with it lies glory
That which knows no status
Only a partner to silence
Yet someone needs to wake up


My ache lies underneath

Today I complaints, morrow I'm blamed
For all you use to render was love
You made me sleep whiles you watch
But my ache lies underneath

My ache lies underneath
Till now I have no mouth
Your voice was my courage
Wrapper you bring at the cold chilly night
And pure wine at mid-summer

It lies underneath still
I suffer all because my wine is being shared
Now you've made yourself no herb to my wounds
Instead you chased like a country-fly
Indeed it lies underneath

And my only cure is your care
I kept hearing your voice o'er my ears for the wrong you use to ignore
Now, like gnat at midnight
My ache lies underneath
