Evening shadows march relentless ever deeper
Soon darkness and the cold begin to bite
Fears creep round every corner growing steeper
Tormenting dreams will soon, fill the silence of night

In her mind she's running hopelessly from danger
Pain filling every step slowing her stride
She feels the heat of breath so close behind her
So desperate to escape, find somewhere safe to hide

Silence the night
Screams with tears
Silence the night
Dreams with fears
Silence the night
Silence the night

Fingers graze now on her body ripping clothing
She struggled but he caught her in his grasp
She bears his every touch with utter loathing
Screams ripple through her tears, her breath a painful rasp

Silence the night
Screams with tears
Silence the night
Dreams with fears
Silence the night
Silence the night

Body torn and bruised her voice reduced to whisper
Shakes violently from shock at what he's done
So her dream begins to fade as daylight blisters
And she awakes at last, warmed by the morning sun

Screaming through the silence of night
Darkness holds closely until dawn
Screaming kicking yelling she'ill fight
'till sunrise when nightmares are gone

Silence the night
Screams with tears
Silence the night
Dreams with fears
Silence the night
Silence the night

Silence The Night

Standing in the rain
Soaked down to my skin
Washing out the pain
Running down my chin
Rain drops chill me out
Bring me back some peace
Clear away my doubt
Make my tensions ease

The rain, the rain, the rain, the rain, the rain
Standing….. in the rain…..
The rain, the rain, the rain, the rain, the rain
Standing in the rain…..

Soaked from head to toe
Feeling free at last
For a walk I go
Rain's now falling fast
On and on I trudge
Soaked and dripping wet
My resolve won't budge
I can’t go home yet

The rain, the rain, the rain, the rain, the rain
Standing….. in the rain…..
The rain, the rain, the rain, the rain, the rain
Standing in the rain…..

Eyes begin to sting
Hurting from the tears
I can’t stop crying
Ran out of ideas
Standing in the rain
Soaked down to my skin
Washing out the pain
Running down my chin

The rain, the rain, the rain, the rain, the rain
Standing….. in the rain…..
The rain, the rain, the rain, the rain, the rain
Standing in the rain…..

About Me

Bio

Hi. I began writing lyrics in November 2016 as a form of self therapy for myself to help me focus thoughts. I suffer from PTSD, and writing is a fantastic way to keep my thoughts flowing on an even level. I am currently 56 years of age, and live in Worcester, UK. I work voluntarily in a military veterans help centre, signposting veterans of all ages to any assistance currently available to them. I am looking to sell some of the many lyrics I have written as a means of funding this centre, to help keep it running as long as we possibly can.
