Darkness


I lay awake and wonder,
What kind of spell I’m under.
Keeping me from the dreams I used to see.

Staring at the ceiling,
I can’t help but feeling,
That I may never be set free.

The darkness comes to bind me.
With ease my demons find me.
Can someone help me through the night?
‘Til I can see the morning light…

I feel my heartbeat quicken.
My stomach starts to sicken.
Why must it torture me this way?

Already longing sunrise.
When calm returns to my eyes.
Please let me start a brand new day.

But darkness overtakes me.
My demons work to break me.
Somebody help me through the night.
‘Til I can see the morning light…

The fear is so imposing.
I fight my eyelids’ closing.
I’m drifting off now I can tell.

Surrender I know will come.
My mind is starting to numb.
As I go to that place I know so well.

And darkness now has beat me.
My demons will defeat me.
Please won’t you help me through the night?
‘Til I can see the morning light…

…When once again I’ll be all right.
