a cloud of smoke lyrics – anasarca

[based on “a cloud of smoke” by an unknown author]

in the haze of darkness
i remember it like yesterday
someone i once used to be
and then it fades away
i feel it around the corner
a thought i never had
i see it in the mirror
and the reflections make me sad

it’s a smoke like no other
a scent i can not smell
a story i vaguely remember
with words i can not tell

and then like the morning
when i find myself awake
a dream that has faded gone
was it my mistake?

but like the ripple of the waves
it fades away like mist
and so i keep on searching
for what i just might be

looking under every rock
until i finally will see

and in the darkness there is light
the truth becomes all clear
the words of wisdom answer me
what i seek is near

in a cave i find it
dusty, dark, and old
the memories returning
my story can be told

reality is fleeting
my loved ones fade away
but of that which i have seen
the memories will stay
