Once daylight breaks, I am locked inside the crumbling
walls of my hellish mind.
No thoughts much different than before,
Inside my head I fight my war.
Grasping at a lucid room, every corner turned...impending doom.
My mind and I, we wait and wait for twilight to wash away our fate.
No sooner than sweet darkness falls...
He saves me from those crumbling walls.
I beg and plead for Him to stay,
'Please save me from the light of day! '
His answer always is the same...
'My dear, why do we play this game?
Not friend nor foe will I ever be...
Your comfort does not come from me!
The truth you need to understand...I'm not your Never Never Land!
Not good nor bad was I born to be,
Yet you hide behind my mystery.
I am no different from the Day...
It is you who will not come out to play.
We hold no locks or hidden keys...
It is you that have those abilities.
As I leave you just before sunrise comes,
I watch your fright as you flight to run.'
I sit and listen intent to hear,
Just one word different to take my fear.
I'm not as stupid as I may seem...
Just frozen in this inbetween.
My time stands still as I cannot grasp,
Why sweet Night must you always pass?
