  • Chasing shadows, over my walls
    with myself hardly sleeping
    Dwarfs and giants, twenty feet tall
    fill the room with their creeping

    Sounds of breathing sharpen my ears
    then they fade into nothing
    Someone's laughter out in the street
    fills the night with their loving

    I feel the ice in my head
    Running its hands through my bed
    Not even dreaming I seem to be dead
    Colours of yellow and colours of red

    All I'm asking some secret voice
    Is to lead me to darkness

    I'm so tired, dawn never comes
    I just hide in the shadows Writer/s: IAN PAICE, JON LORD
