Why am I the only one who believes in the night?

Believes In The Night by me

Watched a couple late night movies,
Jotted down a few more lines.
Life's never made more sense to me.
Not that it's saying a lot,
Pretty sure I'm still a few chapters behind.

Turned the radio on like always.
Sang along to words I didn't know
Counting the hours 'til tomorrow is today.
Sleep comes, ready or not.
Hell, sometimes I don't even know.

But I'll awake again this morning,
Manage a smile,
Walk out the door.
And I'll forget everything I learned
The night before.

The night before.

I'm under a spell
Brought on by the sun.
It shines so dark,
Why am I the only one
Who believes in the night?
When we can't see what's not right
In our world.

Broke a couple more of my rules.
Jumped out of love, fell into lust.
It's the moon's fault for not being cruel
When the light it brought
Poured down gently upon us.

The sun spared me no emotion,
Put every single sin into view.
I'll rub the dusk in like a lotion,
Pray the burns it fought
Can somehow never make it through.

When I awake again this morning,
Try to pretend
My soul's not sore.
I will forget everything that happened
The night before.

And as I watch that fateful dawning
I see its light
Mock me once more.
It will haunt me with my memories
Of the night before.

The night before.

Back under a spell
Brought on by the sun.
It shines so dark,
Am I the only one
Who believes in the night?
When we can't see what's not right
In our world,
In our world.

Why am I the only one?
Why must I be the only one
Who believes?
