Darker than the Clouds
Walking through the crowd we shivered,
Our cold hearts waiting for a fever.
She held my hand as the wind blew,
But the grip wasn't as strong as I knew.
The noise of the world seemed quiet,
The sighs grew louder with the night. "Okay, I'll leave now." She said with her head down,
"It's too late to stay here."
Letting go of those hands,
I could feel the stinging night,
The coldness gripped my mind.
Oh I could tell her,
Everything is alright.
But we know it is but a lie.
Heartbreaks fill these city lights.
Tomorrow brings another fight.
It takes more than it ever gives,
Someday it'll take you away from me.
The thoughts keep boxing in my mind,
I keep telling myself that it's alright.
That the coldness in our breaths,
Aren't here to signal death.
I know it's late now,
But I don't want to leave your hand,
For that's all I've ever had.
I want to say it loud,
Let's leave for our home right now,
Without you it's just another house.
But I know that we've stayed here for far too long,
It's like celebrating New Year till February's dawn.
And the lights of our hearts are dying now,
How long before we're darker than these clouds?
