SCHLAFLOS – Sleepless

My angel if you watch
My angel if you watch over me
I’ll listen in the dark
no breath
that heavy hour
before twilight
ghostly yesterdays
revenge retribution
black thoughts in a round dance
My angel you help me get beyond
if you sleep
I am lost
if your wing protects me
I will find morning
find my way to the light
