Words to fill a void

Private Ghosts

I heard you cry out in the darkenss
And baby I wasnt surprised
You were beautiful when I met you
But with fear in those dark rimmed eyes

Does some private ghost haunt you in the still of the night?
Do past memories grab you or jump out to bite?
How long has it been since you've slept with that light?
And will you ever believe me when I say 'It's Alright'

I heard you cry out in the darkness
And baby I wasn't surprised
But there's no need for tears tonight
Cause I'm right here by your side

A few days ago, my bedroom - Jn

I like how you can keep them short. I get going and can't stop. But you can say a lot without all of the extra verbage. And I like this one. I can hear it in a soft voice.

Like Lucinda Williams.
