  • Keep in the dark to stay out of the light
    Keep in the dark to stay out of the light
    Just hang the sunshine

    Turn off your light, let's step into the dark
    Slip away like 'into her
    Save your face and get behind, it's firmly pressed into earth
    I feel relief when I talk, eventually comes
    Talk of our dreams, you surely have one
    Mind your head and keep your hands firmly pressed into earth

    Dream on and sleep won't save you from the night
    Drink a bottle, rest in wine
    A shameful display, sung in some other place
    To keep in the dark

    Dream on and sleep won't save you from the night
    Drink a bottle, rest in wine
    I come with a string to recover the world
    She sings in the night and never grows on

    Night falling, save the grace with wondering eyes
    Drawn to a beauty left to lay in the light
    'only precious white wine full of worth

    Dressed in all, safe from the dark
    But dressed in a body let stranger to pass
    Flashing my attempt to calling an all showing girl
    Your true words

    Dream on and sleep won't save you from the night
    Drink a bottle, rest in wine
    A shameful display, sung in some other place
    To keep in the dark

    Dream on and sleep won't save you from the night
    Drink a bottle, rest in wine
    I come with a string to recover the world
    She sings in the night and never grows on Writer/s: JAMES EDWARD BAGSHAW, THOMAS EDWARD WALMSLEY
