If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough.


The starless night wraps it’s endless cloak around my
bare shoulders

It tears through my shallow hopes like raging lightning

through a thunder cloud

I am cold

I am alone

So alone

All alone

I find shelter in his arms, arms that hold me so tight

I’m afraid I’ll die

When he leaves when all I’ll have for company is the

Endless cloak of night

I’ll be cold

I’ll be alone

So alone

All alone

He’s here again by my side and I’m starting to think

He’s here to stay

Here to hold me in those arms of his and chase the

Cloak of night away

I’m lukewarm

He’s here

He’s right here

He’s still here

I’m accustomed to his presence now, drawn to his

Radiant light

The light that’s so bright that not even the bluest

Night can cut through to get to me

I’m thawing out

He’s here

He’s right here

He’s still here

He promises that he’s not going anywhere as long as

I want him here with me

With my temperature rising and the night held at bay

I’ve decided I want him to stay

I’m room temperature

He’s here

He’s still here

He’ll be here
