The Dark I Know Well - Poem by Shiv Wallis

There's a part I can't tell
About the dark I know well

You say, 'Time for bed now, child'
Mum just smiles that smile -
Just like she never saw me
Just like she never saw me

So I leave, wanting just to hide
Knowing deep inside
you are comin to me
you are comin to me

You say all you want is just a kiss goodnight
And then you hold me and you whisper
'Child the lord won't mind
Its just you and me
Child you're a beauty'

'God its good - the lovin - aint it good tonight
You aint seen nothing yet, gonna treat you right
Its just you and me
Child youre a beauty'

I dont scream, though i know its wrong
I just play along
I lie there and breathe
Lie there and breathe

I wanna be strong -
I want the world to find out
That youre dreaming on me
Me and my beauty
Me and my beauty

You say all you want is just a kiss goodnight
Then you hold me and you whisper
'Child the lord wont mind
Its just you and me
child youre a beauty

God its good - the lovin - aint it good tonight
You aint seen nothin yet, gonna teach you right
Its just you and me
Child youre a beauty

Theres a part i can't tell
About the dark i know well

Theres a part i can't tell
About the dark i know well

Theres a part i can tell
About the dark i know well
