This Night

I just have to share my new favourite song. The one that keeps swirling around my head, perfectly inspiring images and scenes of my latest work in progress. Love it when a song does that :-)


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

It's great when songs inspire us. This song is like a poem; the lyrics are intense.

For some reason I can't get any sound :( Stunning lyrics, though.
