Month of misery and pain, its coming again

This pain is spreading its roots in my body

It’s growing deep; I can feel it and I can’t breathe

It has strangled my neck, choking me down to death

Blocking all the holes, no way for light to come through

My brain and soul is fighting for each other

It’s breaking the connection and I am loosing the battle

I am floating in air with no proper direction

I have lost my life compass in all this friction

November is setting in and wounds are spreading out

Oozing with agony and guilt making my heart sink in crowd

All my life is flashing before my eyes now

I can still see those December days in hindsight

My father used to bring those sweet Turkish delights

I was a terrible child and used to stay in my room all night

When I was going away he wanted to hug me tight

But I just shook his hand, said goodbye and see you again

That was the last time I saw his bright eyes with tears inside

Many years are gone since I left home and Mom

Now I realise I was wrong and it’s too late to sing this song

I bought a ticket to home with that bell bottoms and shirt of cotton

Got his favourite pack of cigars, leather jacket and classy satchel

I got back to the dorm, heard bell ringing on the phone

I felt in my bones there is something wrong at home

I realised that night, how it feels when death kiss the life
