Night Lily '19

Appearing nightly on a hard wood floor
Pacing, pacing, and pacing
Sometimes forgetting what sleep is for
My worrysome mind is racing

( chorus )
She bloomed like a lily at night
Then she faded by the morning light


Daydreaming after I sit down
Watching colors run
Then the heart ache comes around
Blinded by the morning sun

( chorus )
She bloomed like a lily at night
Then she faded by the morning light

( bridge )
A fertile soil where only weeds grow
When once their was a bouquet
The barren winter
Where stems will splinter
To the harsh light of day
Now I have nothing to show

( chorus )
She bloomed like a lily at night
Then she faded by the morning light
