I want to be the one, That, in your eyes, walks in beauty. Find all the darkness that you need, In my eyes. For I find all of mine in yours.

Notice me face, the way I tilt my head, The smile that lights up my face when you light up the room. Graceless? I know I am, but I too can be sweet. Perhaps all the more sweet I can act, Since all below is raging.

Pure, I am that, and so is my love. Gentle is my starstruck mind, Where all I see all day and evening, Is the moonshine from your crafty smile, Oh, that crafty crinkle in your cheek steals me every time.

So many people want you, But how many will admit they need you? Don't lead me to a place of trust, To leave me there, Wanting, and hungy. Because you know I would follow you there, Dancing all the way.

Oh, I am the night. So silent, but purer than the garish sun. I can swear you I am. Look closer, and you'll see it When I walk.
