Secretly Sleeping

There aint no sunshine in the middle of the night

There aint no teardrop in the middle of this fight

 

I see the clock keep ticking on

The hours pass while my mind is not done

Picture frames of crime scenes are flashing

Before my eyes, across my eyelashes

Wait in desire

Wait until the morning comes

 

Wait, ‘till I’m secretly sleeping

There aint no sunshine in the middle of the night

There aint no savior in the middle of this fight

 

Terrifying light is blinding my full sight

Rhythmic noise of lovers, stabbing me right

This is my redemption song

My three minute model of liberation

 

Wait in desire

Wait till the morning comes

Daylight is chasing me

Wait in the desire

Wait till I’m secretly sleeping
