And suddenly life is not so bleak
So though it may be a Monday morning
I know that everything will be great
Its really kind of interesting
How in this time of great despair,
When the storms of life won't leave me be, I'm happy
I hear your voice, and sometimes I think about the days
Before I met you, when I would suffer from
a desperate yearning burning that the world could not extinguish,
an ancient ache inside of me that's never known a name.
There was a tremor in my limbs that would not go away,
a rasping in my throat that never seems to fade.
I cried out in pain, but no one answered.
I curled into a ball and waited for death to claim me,
for I could hear the whispers of the spirits,
but even Death did not come for me…
But then came the moment in my life when I met you,
When the world about me changed
See, I used to walk alone at night,
When everybody else was sleeping
I would think of all those I had left happier
As the city went to bed
