In The Darkness

In the darkness
Secrets whispered
We cannot see
But we know we are heard
Hold your breath now
It ain't over
I'm not the one
To call you my girl

Let go of your pretenses
You know that I'm defenseless
Take from me no more advances
Yeah I wish to exist in the light and not the darkness

Sink my teeth in
Fingers wander
What do I need?
What do I deserve?
Hold it in dear
Our little secret
Yeah we are fine
We've got no regrets


Sailing towards the shore
In your ship, out at sea
You saw her standing there
A lighthouse shining free

Claimed her light for yourself
For the life of your ship
In your pride you didn't believe
You would one day take the hit

As her light waned amidst cries
For her ruins you did not care
As you sailed away in your ship
She was not in good repair

One day her light faded out
While her feelings you did mock
In your pride you did not see
Your ship crash on the rocks

Now her light shines free
Brighter than ever before
She belongs to no one
Though she guides another to shore
