|Voices in the dark,
you know the ones,
they have you tossing and turning
searching for that perfect spot on the pillow
while you lie awake late at night.
Voices, voices…. voices in the dark.
They speak to you in the language
of the Woulda-Coulda-Shoulda,
they invade your dreams,
challenge your inner-self,
plague you with demons of
self-doubt and uncertainty.
Voices, voices….. voices in the dark.
They remind you of lovers
gone but not forgotten,
triumphs and failures,
weaknesses and strengths.
Things you know you should have remembered,
of things you know you should have left alone.
Voices, voices…… voices in the dark.
They speak to you
with the wisdom of hindsight
and condemn you with the clarity of
yesterday’s news. They remind you
of how blessed you’ve been and curse
you for the things you did not do.
Voices, voices …..voices in the dark.
