Sun-kissed dark room
Wanting to turn everything off
Wanting to hide in a dark corner
Wanting it all to be over.
Have you seen the sky today?
The underbelly of the clouds
Are scorched with flames
They disappear into a pool of blue
The light that fills my room
Touches each corner
Gently and with love
But it’s darkness that fills the centre.
We keep using riddles
And metaphors to hide
The raw emotion that was hidden so deep down inside,
Soon we’re going to have to face daybreak
Hear the sparrows scream out and the truth blind our eyes
But please let us just sit a while
Alone in my sun kissed dark room.
The curtain is starting to open
There’s a light breaking in
But that light is unwanted
Too bright too harsh
It hurts to look at
It hurts to feel in my heart
I guess we have to face it
Drag open the dying curtains
The light that fills our squinting pupils
Will push through our riddles and our rhymes
But forgive me if sometimes I’d rather stay
In this sun kissed room
That’s dark on the inside
And ignore our problems
To pretend it’s okay.
