Sitting alone in the dark at night
thinking how I can make things right
everything is just out of my might.
Dark clouds roaming in my mind,
nightmares reach me even out of sight
I keep wondering when will I ever see the light.
Every time they see me, I say I’m alright,
I’m in a facade making sure that all appears bright.
Been gambling with my life, always rolling a die
My soul keeps wondering, when the body will ever die.
Can’t wait to let the bad emotions fly sky high
and let the restless soul rest in flight.
Dark clouds roaming in my mind.
Will I ever be alright?
