the nighttime ,its a
black eternity of passing time
lighted by one candle flame
the hours slowly passing by
each different yet there all the  same

the flame of the candle is a dancing wall between us
to me its seems so warm
socoolin  its changing shape
lighting up a outherwise dark room

but to get to her seems impossable
it cuts the night in two
two halves of cold and black  darkness
it traps both me and you

i see
you there ,
light dances in your eyes
some cruel type of seek and hide
the flames pour out, it's not the end
the danger lurking close at hand

i see
your still mad from me losing at the track
so i cannot touch you
cause the pain for me would be too much
the pain of anger burning you
the torture i could not endure

forgive me please
stay! don't leave me! no!
the wall of flames is getting cold
i reach my hand to keep you there
but the emtyness is growing strong 

and then  you are gone, the light has faded
the warmth, the fire died as well
your cage closed in, being invaded
i'm all alone in empty hell
worse then living in st cloud ,florida ,now
only the night goes on and on
the hours slowly passing by
i struggle still, now on my own
in this black darkness ,wodering if i dint gamble
and i looked at you the way i looked at the racing form
if the light would not have faded
