wrap around me { revisiting 2010 }

i want to wrap

the dark of night around me

and disappear from view

“This Night”   Black Lab

lyrics ~

There are things I have done
There’s a place I have gone
There’s a beast and I let it run
Now it’s running my way
There are things I regret
That you can’t forgive
You can’t forget
There’s a gift
That you sent
You sent it my way

So take this night
And wrap it around me like a sheet
I know I’m not forgiven
But I need a place to sleep
So take this night
And lay me down on the street
I know I’m not forgiven
But I hope that I’ll be given some peace.

There’s a game
That I played
There are rules
I had to break
There’s mistakes that I made
But I made them my way

So take this night
And wrap it around me like a sheet
I know I’m not forgiven
But I need a place to sleep
So take this night
And lay me down on the street
I know I’m not forgiven
But I hope that I’ll be given some peace
Some peace
Some peace
