#1
Darkness swallowing the day,
Stealing the lights from your way,
The wolves of your mind start to bay,
And you begin to cry,

Jokers laughing in the streets,
Swinging round the breaking beats,
The drops of rain fall at your feet,
As you stand all alone,

Don't listen to the night,
Take my hands, babe i'll treat you right,
It's not who you are that matters,
It's who you're gonna be,

Ill gained acquaintances,
Remonstrate with instances,
Of denial, deceit, lies and shriek,
At the injustices of the world,

You think twice of your old haunt,
His smile is thin, his face is gaunt,
What you don't have he seems to flaunt,
Mocking the way you live,

Don't listen to the night,
Take my hands, babe i'll treat you right,
It's not who you are that matters,
It's who you're gonna be,

Rumours stalking you around,
Whispers of distaste begin to sound,
And you realise you are bound,
To lose everything,

A low slung mist chokes the lane,
You hear a woman cry out in pain,
Running wildly til you strain,
Against these streets that have no name,

Despair beckons with open arms,
A wicked grin and a pitch black heart,
It won't be long til you start,
To wonder why you care,

You look back whistfully,
Thinking of how your life used to be,
You see the sun come up joyfully,
And you start to smile,

Don't listen to the night,
Take my hands, babe i'll treat you right,
It's not who you are that matters,
It's who you're gonna be,
