Sentenced – Ian Perlman

forgotten by time or a lost way?
a choice has been made, but not your own
expect sadness, welcome it
next it’s time to celebrate the core of happiness

the time for excuses left yesterday
inherit tomorrow’s sunrise before the ground drops
making the terrain impassable
your heart will be broken, but trust in the dawn

when choking on broken dreams turn the dial for another tune
lyrics written for you are not too distant
the heavy haze will surely rise
just hold the hand placed in yours

be brave before you crumble
the fire ignites the soul before you burn
be patient as the compass charts the course
forgiveness is sometimes overrated when you learn from mistakes

with no place to fall keep moving, you will be on time eventually
if summer turns to fall
add another layer as the journey gets late
some reveals rise with morning

don’t crowd the broken heart
it only heals with space between the loves – yesterday’s and today’s
the journey isn’t always a forward path
hold on loosely

never stop
true loves along the way are destined to mark time
if you don’t want to be saved
giving up is the sentence you deserve
