Fly In Amber

from Nitelife by Halloween Jack



Several make-up smeared years ago,
About a dozen country miles or so,
Life was young and the nights were gold,
Give or take, either way was bold.

How times change when you let things slide,
Easy to forget to get off the ride,
Why change while you’re surfing highs?
Dismiss your blues with a gentle sigh.

Once you realised the nights were cold,
And the sold-out stage show had to fold,
All the thrills that seemed were never broke,
All the dreams that now went up in smoke.

Morning booze and snowblind sunrise,
Bloodshot eyes focus in on the headlines,
What you did, what you said was rotten,
Anything you learned will soon be forgotten.

She took her chances,
She made her own life,
All she wanted was no one to ask her why,
Trapped by beauty,
A fly in amber,
A concrete swan,
Unable to fly.
