“The Well”

Hideaway
Hideaway
Far from conniving eyes
Hide so well
You’ll never tell
A soul starved will slowly die

Hideaway
Hideaway
Until all you were begins to fade
Like a final breath
Whispered in death
Decay and drift away

Hideaway
Hideaway
Because it’s safe until it’s not
Stay protected from
The passing storms
At a detrimental cost

Hideaway
Hideaway
Safely nestled within these walls
War rages out there
So we don’t dare
Answer when it calls

Hideaway
Hideaway
Remember how it used to be
Warm sun on your brow
His softly spoken vow
Life flowing effortlessly

Hideaway
Hideaway
We have no other choice
But blessed enough
To have tasted it once
Body hidden, we use our voice

Hideaway
Hideaway
Withering to bone
Our well has run dry
Because we chose to hide
Life should never be lived alone
