The clock chimes
And I hear it
A deathly grin
And I see it
A chill to my bones
And I feel it
A song on my lips
And I sing it
My nightmare begins
And I fear it

The dark tears away 
All of my courage
As I sit here and temble
I think to myself
Of all I have done
So now the fright holds me
Whenever I hear 
Old Grandfather's breath
Drifting like a harp's sweet song.

The pain goes on
And I hate it
The light is near
And I want it
My heart beat lingers
And I keep it
My thoughts waver
And I fix it
Air is short
And I need it

Now I run
Like the coward I am.
So scared
And of what?
The space in the attic?
The girl in my mirror?
The voice in my head?
The night and it's myths?
The mouth and it's power?
The kiss and it's owner?
The clock that ticks
Whenever time passes?
The flower that wilts
Whoever has forgotten?
The shadow that follows
Wherever I go?

The bird sings
And I use it
The tool breaks
And I lose it
The day is so soon
And I await it
The brightness so wasted
And I taste it
The heart is so swooned
And I miss it

The shadows crawl
I gasp again
Tears escape
The evil laugh of a former friend
Who else could hate with much vigor?
And know the worst ways to haunt me?
I pray because it is the only protection
And God knows, I need it.
My heart calms.
The dawn's relief.
I need a hope
I need a light
Something to look to
In the arctic night
Where beauty abounds
In everything
There, my friends, is what I need

My lip's dry for the longest sight of tonight.
I waited asleep for dawn to appear.
It never came for the breeze above my brim for a while stayed.
One hundred years took away one hundred month filled up one hundred weeks took down one
hundred days into one hundred hours pushing away one hundred minutes through one hundred
seconds until it stroke upon one day...
I awaken to you

long awaited darkness
sweet soul surrender to the night
longing for moonlights sweet kiss
the moon slinks from behind the clouds
i sit and listen to the crickets song
i am at peace and utterly Alone
