In the middle of the night

oh, in the middle of the night
where you let my heart beat blind
I was sure you’ld leave a little light
on to ease my mind

oh, in the middle of the night
is it still as cold outside?
I don’t trust winds of that kind
they carried you away

there goes shards of your misery
you left so many pieces with me
I’ve kept so many reasons to hold them closely, safe from harm

the things I took for granted
the words we said and demanded
the love we felt when we had it
oh, in the middle of the night
when the dawn’s a gaping mouth
and its tongue the sun that will rise
to swallow us alive

oh, in the middle of the night
are you still alone outside?
I keep locking all of it out
closing my eyes

here goes the truth, babe, I let you win
you’re closer now than you’ve ever been
you’re closer now that you’re gone, elusively in me
I’ll fight with what i’ve got
when skies turn red like blood
when morning comes I’ll get out too, I promise you
I can’t wait anymore
when I don’t know what I’m waiting for
I can’t wait anymore
when I don’t know what I’m waiting for

I’ll get out too
