“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

ఎ • ౡ • ల

you ask for peace
as if  the asking makes you deserving

if  it were in my power
i would take the night
and wrap it so tight around you
that no life remained

let the beast which you loosed upon others
exact the price for all you did
leaving you not a moment’s  peace
in this lifetime or the hereafter
