Behind You

No walk in the park, no stroll down the lane

As the comfort of light starts to wane

 

Was that a friendly, smiling face

Ghosts in your head start to race

 

Right behind you, the shadows fall into place

Behind you, your mind falls prey to the chase

 

Warm is the breath of the moonlit night

Confidence fails no strength to take flight

 

 

Behind you, the darkness lasts way too long

Behind you, you can look back or you’re gone

 

Behind you, your heartbeat enters a race, and its back in second place

Behind you, the iced hand claws at your face

One dark step behind you
