Day Without Sunshine

I wandered today
              Felt your shadow on my skin
The practice room was cold and dark
I couldn't look for fear of being alone.

I was lost today
The voices tried to break through
              And I almost let them

I would take your pain, your sadness
I would hold you close forever
I would find your star

The cold hard sun beats down
               Then fades away from view
Half of me is somewhere else
                I am not all here

You were gone today
The madness began to set in
               And I almost let it

I would take you from this nightmare
I would hold you close forever
I would find your star
