The sweet nothings Death whispers in your ear.

Close your eyes against the reigning night
It's okay that you're too weak to fight
Nothing matters anymore
Here where darkened angels soar
Just let me hold you now tonight
As we see this mythic sight

Soft are the stars deep in the sky
So sweet is time, creeping, crawling by
It's okay, and it's all right
To be scared today, tonight
Stay here- I'll let you cry
One last time before good-bye

Don't rise, don't struggle from this eternal sleep
It's okay- you're mine to keep
Your thoughts- too little, too late, and so long ago
From a time within a time we barely know
I'll listen as you cry and weep
It's only time before you're again asleep

So quiet is this reigning night as you draw your last
So dear is this life, and slipping painfully fast
And embrace-- a sleep so sweet you've never seen
The person at peace you've never been
Forget your present, your future, and past
You are mine, and mine at last
