The Nightmare Starts When I Wake Up

25 Nov

Early lyrics I’m saving for a song I’m writing, almost done.      

“The nightmare starts when I wake up,

in a cold sweat,

on a hot hot summer’s day-

light all around me,

it surrounds me, in its embrace….

and I begin to sway ….

Sway to the image in my nighmare, which I brought back,

from the depths of a deep deep sleep-

ing with my nightmare, and the deafening sounds of

no one, anywhere….

 The emptiness is familiar, it knows me and it shows me what I missed – when my eyes were open, so I close them – to find my better bliss.

The nightmare starts when I wake up – the nightmare starts when I wake up – the nightmare starts when I wake up.”
