Beautiful Loser
By: Shawn Petrie (10-22-2000)


Hold me back I’m running too fast
Towards a light which burns too bright
Towards an illusion I created myself
Within my mind, artificial perfection

Close the door the sight is too strong
The stare too long my approach all wrong
Conversation splinters the silence
Eye contact is stronger than we can admit

Advice ignored, share this warmth with me
Show me signs that I can read, recognize this need
Show me the proper path so I wont get lost
Realize and except that I know what I want

Held over my head, this strange power
Engraved in us all especially the small
And some go too far, I have been an example
I have proven the fear, I have done that before

Left alone in the crowded room
Im lonely tonight, elevated to a new height
Pick up an old wooden box, I try to compensate
Lye my head down and wait for a new day

Broken glass and shattered dreams
Not the first time, imperfect mind
Things just aren’t the same
There never was a path to follow

Showcase my emotions, cannot hide
I try to disguise, I try to lie
Nature holds the keys to who I am
With an enemy like that I can never get ahead

Wait a little longer, anticipate a time
Opportunity will come but nothing will be done
Look through me into another,
Have you found what you want?
Don’t worry about me ill be fine

Keep my eyes open, someone like me
Not someone perfect
But someone impure and also unsure
Of who they could be, just what they need
Personality flawed, socially subdued
2 beautiful losers find each other and conform

Battle Heart
By: Shawn Petrie (3-22-01)


Despair in the eyes of the angel
Hello, I am the one you need
To show, to lead, to push you forward
I am the one to slow the bleed

Fear in the heart of the enemy
Goodbye, you cry as you go
You run, you hide, you close the door
Never again are you willing to show

Pain in the souls of the children
Standing back, walls collide
The structure we built has began to wilt
And the arms are no longer open wide

Death on the lips of the world
The end, from the day it began
The planets in pain, this life is a game
Do we all do the best that we can?

I hear the cries as the war is lost
The souls torn apart and forgotten
I live this life from day to day
But my will to survive is now rotten

The expression on my face is lost
As I can no longer pay the cost
I know the rules, but who’s the boss
Into the fire my body I’ll toss

Alone another night
By: Shawn Petrie (5-5-1999)


I can’t stand the thought of coming home to this empty house
And I know you have plans to go out tonight
But I don’t want you to go so I put up this fight
Because baby I don’t want to be alone tonight

My heart is as empty as these empty halls
Which lead to empty rooms
Having you here would paint the walls with light
Don’t let me be alone tonight

I don’t want to lay my head down on that empty bed
With only your memory to make everything all right
And your not being here is proof I’m holding on too tight
But baby I don’t want to be alone tonight

I close my eyes, remember you and my heart hits the floor
I hate the way you left me here, but still the shining light
I beg and plead with you to stay and make things right
So for the first and last time, don’t let me be alone tonight

I don’t want to wake up, in the morning light alone
Go one more day, without seeing your face or holding you tight
The hope I have that you’ll come back, is stronger than the sun is bright
I just wish with all of my heart that you had stayed last night
