beautiful things can come from the dark - lyrics by azure ray

someone else’s boy,
you’ve had it so hard
will you grow up to be you,
or a sum of your parts just hanging in the air?
someone else’s boy,
tell me your convoluted stories through half-rotten mouth,
i will decipher them, to tell the world of your heart
how beautiful things can come from the dark.

oh, boy...

someone else’s boy, i have seen your face
light in the stars, it was then i knew
that your heart was pure,
that it had not yet been destroyed.

oh, no...

someone else’s boy,
i have hope for you
that you will keep your love for the world
even though it beats you down, every day,
for the rest of your stay.

if you could sweep up the pieces and watch them swirl,
you could even find love in the arms of someone else’s girl.

someone else’s boy,
though your life has been short,
you’ve seen more pain than most of us know.
if you make it through this, vacuum up the mess,
smile to yourself, lying on your nice new clean floor.
