In the Deep Dark of the Bitter Night.
In the deep dark of the bitter night
Far from the sanctuary of the new dawn’s light
Another sleepless night of worries and dread
From the thoughts running riot Inside your head
You toss and turn but can find no ease
The promise of sleep just torments and tease
The shadows suffocate you in blanket of despair
Your demons gather strength and reappear.
Even your dreams are filled with fears
Ready to betray you and become nightmares
From the thoughts and worries that besiege your brain
Until you find that sacred place to shield you from the pain
To protect and hide from your worries and fears
A sanctuary to shield you from your sorrows and cares
As the ticking clock counts the hours away
Until the light of a brand new day.
