The winter nights pass slowly
The hours fade to morning
Then I sleep
The cold reminds me of life ending
My frozen body, motionless

I think by firelight, my mind racing
My solipsistic fears come to life
Again the sun sends me to sleep
Where I endure the torture of my dreams

I turn away, consumed by the dark
Where all I can hear
Is the sound of my own heart

It quickens!
Amplified in the quiet of the night
Cling to hope I'll see another dawn;
I'll wake up!

Bring me the night
And the desolate cold
So that here alone
I can finally grow
