Hello Darkness, dear friend
Lets fly away together to that special place
Where there’s just you and me
And no one and nothing to chase.
To take a pause from this life
From all the light oh-so-bright
My eyes water or are they tears
How to know now it is night.
That place in dreams that I go to
Whenever you are with me
Wildly attractive, darkly beautiful
Forever mine and yours to be.
That place that we call home
Darkness, old friend, let’s go together
As without you to lighten my path
She disappears from existence into the ether.
Darkness, my friend, do not ever leave me
In the flotsam and jetsam called this life
All my constants are so no more
You are the only that’s no strife.
