Never mind the dark,

I felt blinded before

The lights were bright

and still I couldn’t see

Never mind the storm

I felt scared before

The skies were calm

and I still couldn’t go out

And you kept your cards down

kept your hands hidden from sight

I was trying to not let you down

but in your one man show

I never had any right….

Don’t light the lamp

I prefer the darkness now

To seeing your face

and feeling betrayed

Don’t give me a roof

I prefer the open now

I would rather face the elements

Than be suddenly drenched

And finally your steps walked away

the sounds of their shadow slowly faded

I was out of your power play

But I will be looking over

my shoulder doom awaited..
