FAWM

Posted: February 1, 2014 in music, pieces, writing stuff

It’s that time of year again when I attempt to write 14 sets of lyrics in 28 days. I usually fail, I usually get disheartened by the lyrics just sitting there with no music to accompany them, I usually curse my inability to be in any way able to construct actual songs with actual music. But hey….

Anyway. Day 1 and two songs finished – albeit one being a collaboration with my darling other half who in fact did most of the work. I was more acting in a lyrical consult capacity but she is generously giving me collaboration credit. Here’s my solo effort….

‘Sleepwalkers’

We will haunt you in the night
Slip inside the thoughts you keep inside
Deepest dark desires
The secrets of your heart
The feelings that try to tear you apart

Creeping through the shades and shadows
Slipping through the walls of your mind
Sliding past your wards and defences 
Leaving echoes of ourselves behind
The sleepwalkers are with you

Let your waking mind relax
Cede control, sink down into slumber
We are waiting there
Just open up your mind
Let the sleepwalkers see what they can find

Creeping through the shades and shadows
Slipping through the walls of your mind
Sliding past your wards and defences 
Leaving echoes of ourselves behind
The sleepwalkers are with you

In the morning when you wake
You’ll feel strange without a reason why
Footsteps on your grave
a shiver down your spine
The echo the sleepwalkers left behind

Creeping through the shades and shadows
Slipping through the walls of your mind
Sliding past your wards and defences 
Leaving echoes of ourselves behind
The sleepwalkers are with you
