When the Light Goes Off

light

When the light goes off 

And am left with my thoughts 

I take a deep breath 

As my body hits the bed 

 

It’s time to let it all out 

Tell you everything  

Cry till my body spasms with sobs 

Oh let me feel your warm embrace  

 

When the light goes off 

And my friends are gone 

I don’t feel alone 

Because I have you 

 

You’re my addiction  

The antidote to the storms of life 

The fuel to keep me moving 

The reason not to die 

 

If I don’t have you 

Then I’m afraid 

What happens to me 

When the light goes off
