Welcome to ‘Valley/Wood,’ a new Lyrics Collection by Serg Beret

ValleyWood1

The newest Lyrics Collection has arrived. That’s right, there was a reason for all those newly published lyrics earlier as they are part of Valley/WoodValley/Wood is the latest in collections of lyrics, this time focusing on the newly acquired sense of being for the narrator character of the previous outings RGHTS and (E)(P) Escapade Perchance.

The narrator returns to reside in the town of Valley/Wood. It is here that we find him dreaming once again of romance in lyrics such as “Dream Too Much,” “Morning Star,” “Safe by You” and “Keep.” He also reflects and reveals the subject of the pain on RGHTS in “ane,” “oyl,”  & “method: Madness” and discusses his failed romances in “Fantom” & “Kimber Li.” Other lyrics include the commentary on the banality of popular music in “Banal,” the tribute to a lover’s dream in “Second Light” and the dramatic realization of the one that got away in the closing lyrics “Much to Dream.”

Of course, it is always open for more interpretation than just the descriptions above. Please read and enjoy this wonderful collection of lyrics.

Lyrics: “method: Madness”

Hear a spirited voice saying
“Come closer, get enraptured by the waves of love”
I slip away from the current
I’m not ready to wash away

I’ve become disillusioned
To the notion that someone is gonna save me
And only the one being will stay
Many ones have gone away

Put it out to pasture
A preconceived dream wasting time
Still yearn for the affection
But yanking a promised ring is where I drew the line

There’s a method to Aphrodite’s madness
Admiration of the heart is on high
There’s a method to Erida’s madness
Bellicose feud is now nigh

Got only one picture of you
Shot against the light of the setting day
Your visage is not in view
Only a shadow sits in a frozen state

It truly represents you
A former lively hominid
Only a static image never moving
A reflection of your current place

Hope the waves enrapture your being
Drown you to your lowest point
Feel as I did when your oxygen
Was no longer my breath of choice

There’s a method to Aphrodite’s madness
Admiration of the heart is on high
There’s a method to Erida’s madness
Bellicose feud is now nigh

Hear your spirited voice calling
“Come closer, get enraptured by my waves”
I slip away from your current
I’m not yours to wash away

Lyrics: “Much To Dream”

Bright Eyes started playing last night
The scene started out right
“First Day of My Life” blaring in stereo
Scoring the wonderment of imagination
But it wasn’t her in the scenes

They played out similarly as before
These moments from reality
I reshaped and reframed every point
Set up the marks in different positions
And replaced her with you

You, yourself, who is so much to dream
I, myself, too late to see that seam
Sewn in the fabric of a writer’s dreams
Your love is too much to dream

It was running all over again
Us holding hands as lovers on the beach
Intimate moments became simple and clean
We kissed under the moonlight and against sun’s setting
We pull each other close and embrace
Goosebumps build and our hearts race

You, yourself, who is so much to dream
I, myself, too late to see that reality
Deep in the framework of a writer’s dream
Your love is too much to dream

When I wake
You’ll be gone
When I wake
You aren’t in my
Reality

Though I wish you would be
For the scars internal bleed
I need healing
I need feeling

But you are too much to dream
You are way too much to dream
Why couldn’t I make this
Actuality?

But I dream too much
I dream too much

Lyrics: “Second Light”

Are you the light to brighten up
This darkened world?
Are you the dream brought into life
For me to seek?

Yet you could be a thoughtful fantasy
A million have already wish to be
With them, holding them, embracing them
Throughout all the odds and ends

Magnificent in every way
Your light shines on me
Makes the grey and overcast
Into a brighter day on Earth
You are my second light

Am I the light to brighten up
Your darkened world?
Am I a dream brought into life
For you to seek?
That last inquiry was absolutely dumb
Of me

Yet you could be a fun and fancy free dream
A million have tried to find
Around them, surrounding them, waiting for them
Through their lives’ odds and ends

Magnificent in every way
Your light shines on me
Makes the grey and overcast
Into a brighter day on Earth
You are my second light

Lyrics: “Kimber Li”

Swear I can hear you
Swear I can feel you
Arms around you
Warm satisfaction from
The embrace of a loved one
Too soon for the rush
Just four months since
I lost the last touch

It’s a problem, too much
To take in and the situation as such
Won’t go to plan due to the state
My mental being has because I do admire
Your heart-filled soul, selfless and romantic
But your mind is just as frantic

Caught you crying in the backseat of your car
The heat and heaviness fade as you collapse into
My arms telling you you’ll be safe
The pull of your past love inhibits you
Yet we still make love to make his pull numb

It kills us both with each push and stroke
I lose heat when In think of her push
As you think of his pull on you
No longer in embrace, naked and lying in place

We use intimacy to distract, not to attract
We both felt the same
Which is why we began to decay
You still wanted lust in the end
My mind took lust aside to have love
Friendship was thing on our mind
Only lustful beings left here to die

Snap videos fooling with ourselves
Technologic fun bad for our bond’s health
Dissolving with every moan and groan involved
We both got used to fill a space
Passionate appetite became an irritant
Craved it before with the past mate
Was the only way she shows her true face

Apologize for going too fast
We knew going in it would not last
Lied to ourselves to afloat
But every kiss and hand held only amplified
All the lies we kept inside
Now your name is just a rhyme
And my name a simple footnote in your life
Hope we start getting better in time
Kimber Li

Lyrics: “Fantom”

You aren’t
The first one to go and do this
Ditch me at the first sign of doubt
Instead of trying to figure it out

I’ve been
In your position before all this
Wanting to leave and erase a trace
Instead of trying to figure it out

I’m a phantom falling away
Fictitious in your melody you sang
Becoming the ghost
That wanders your soul

I’m a phantom falling away
Fictitious in your melody you sang
Becoming the ghost
That wanders your soul

Kim did
It all in a flashing instant
Elizabeth only wanted a night
Instead of finding some ground

Des was
Never the fate that I needed
Darlene got away with it easy
Instead of finding some ground

I’m a phantom falling away
Fictitious in your melody you sang
Becoming the ghost
That wanders your soul

I’m a phantom falling away
Fictitious in your melody you sang
Becoming the ghost
That wanders your soul

Lyrics: “Keep”

Keep safe from out of harm’s way
Keep calm from the storms that rage
Keep warm from the cold that sweeps away
Keep love from the hate that penetrates
The soul in disarray

Please stay on the ground
There’s no one else around
To keep my heart
To keep my heart

Stay safe from the beings that claw at us
Stay calm in the winds that devastate us
Stay warm when the cold snaps us in two
Stay in love as hate only kills
It only kills those who lost love
Along the way

Please stay on the ground
There’s no one else around
To keep my heart
To keep my heart

Keep it for yourself
I’ve got nothing else
Keep it for yourself

Lyrics: “Morning Star”

I fell for you under the morning star
I dreamed of you miles apart
Away from this world
Away from this dying Earth

I fell for you under the sun
I dreamed we have already won
Away from the daily run
Away from what we used to call

Home away from home
The time has come for us to go
Leave the past all behind
Change our names and then defy

The odds against us are stacked
This bet we’ve made
We can’t turn back
But we can forget the mistakes we made

We lost ourselves, lost our way
Our journey’s no longer cross today
In exile in the free air
We always look to dare

Ourselves to keep on going on
The hearts we break
The paths we’ve crossed
Will make fate come crashing down

Destiny will soon be found
Happiness is abound
With the new love we pursue
Our lives will begin anew

The odds against us are stacked
This bet we’ve made
We can’t turn back
But we can forget the mistakes we made

We lost ourselves, lost our way
Our journey’s no longer cross today
In exile in the free air
We always look to dare

Away from this world
Away from our dying Earth
We’ll dream of them miles apart
We’ll fall for them under the morning star

Lyrics: “Dream Too Much”

Building moments
Leading to an end
A climax, a resolve
Light shines on us both

Your smile, a gleam in eye
Your laugh, a quick rush
Long for a touch
Of your hand to run

Off to the horizon
Infinite in view
Off to the skyline
Lit up in hues of blue
I dream too much
I dream too much

Kissing in rain
Droplets fall away
For it’s you they love
Your greatness, they know

You’re kind, a dream in time
You’re sweet, but never enough
To tire of
Your hand to run

Off to the horizon
Infinite in view
Off to the skyline
Lit up in hues of blue
I dream too much
I dream too much

Yet I know this
I get lost in your bliss
Maybe I can say
“I’m falling for you” someday

Let’s run today
A private getaway

Off to the horizon
Infinite in view
Off to the skyline
Lit up in hues of blue
I dream too much
I dream too much

Into the horizon
Infinity’s in view
Into the skyline
Turning blues to technicolor hues
We’ll both wake up
We’ll both wake up
