Cold Dark Night

Words and music copyright © Leon Chase 2012.

As performed on the album Wild Ways.

Listen

 

I tried to change the past,
said I’d make it last,
got my chance,
and I messed it up again
Love left like garbage in the wind
I let it die

It’s like a test,
I do my best
to keep myself in check,
but some days I can’t win
So I just turn my back again
I let it die

That cold dark night
whispers to me when I’m alone
like a lover at my door
I let it slip inside

That cold dark night,
always bitter, always clear
fierce and brittle as a mirror
It never lies

In a bare-lit back bedroom
she sits alone,
she sits unknown
She studies lines around her eyes
thinks of all the years gone by,
too tired to cry

From a box beneath her bed
she spreads old photos
at her feet
and every picture’s like a gate,
another chance she didn’t take
She wonders why

That cold dark night
whispers to me when I’m alone
like a lover at my door
I let it slip inside

That cold dark night,
always bitter, always clear
pure and brittle as a mirror
It never lies
It never lies
It never lies
