Not Dark Yet

Shadows are falling, I’ve been all day at home
Too hot to sleep and time is running out
My soul has changed, it’s out of steel now
I’ve still got the scars, don’t come out of the valley
There’s not enough time just to be there
It’s not dark yet, but soon it’s getting there

My human kindness has gone down the drain
Behind every beauty there’s some kind of pain
She wrote me a kind letter
She put down to paper exactly what she felt
But what it means to me only my forgetfulness knows
It’s not dark yet, but soon it’s getting there

I’ve been to London and I’ve been to gay Paree
I’ve been to many places ‘til I left them again
I’ve seen only lies in the whole world
I’m not searching anymore, there’s nothing that keeps me anymore
Sometimes the burden is too heavy, I’m not ready anymore
It’s not dark yet, but soon it’s getting there

I was born here and I’ll die here without my will
It seems that I move, but I’m standing still
My whole body is so numb and lame
I can’t remember what it was I came here to escape from
Don’t hear nothing anymore even if it’s screaming
It’s not dark yet, but soon it’s getting there
