A sweet women’s voice, a joyful song, as I lay in the dark.
Earbuds in, swallowed by the sound, a cocoon of thunder.
I try to dream of love, of a better tomorrow, like I once did.
I’ll be up all night, trying to soothe myself with her music.
I want to hope the girl who’s won my heart loves me back.
I’m afraid to hope, because I know she’ll also leave me behind.
In the dark, and with bittersweet melodies, I can touch an angel.
And that angel will smile upon me, and she’ll touch my face.
I’ll be a heartful of love, a child of light, until the morning comes.
The sunlight’s creeping up, a slit of orange, a deep navy blue sky.
I dream of the girl who’s won my heart, try to imagine a future.
But people sell themselves to Satan to make a buck, and time is gone.
A big house out in the country, surrounded by forests and rivers.
Me and a wife I adore, a houseful of animals and kids and laughter.
But the world is burning. No returning. I still want love and a future.
I have to take out the earbuds, get dressed, face this whole waking world.
The lights slips away with the day, when I can’t wrap myself in my dreams.
Let be light in love in a dark world. Let someone come to my life who’ll stay.
