Dark Cloud in Your Heart

Night floats off, day emerges
As you make your way to her
Taking my soul away with you
I knew it the moment I learned
When there was no music that day
And that band you got for her
Was made out of gold

But what she won’t know is
I’ll keep myself in you
I’ll keep myself inside of you
I’ll be that cloud
Dark cloud in your heart

The needle pricks me
And I fall into a deep sleep
Knowing that Prince Charming
Is not around the corner
But holding the vows of another
Of the princess he wasn’t destined
To fall for in this fairy tale

But what she won’t know is
I’ll keep myself in you
I’ll keep myself inside of you
I’ll be that cloud
Dark cloud in your heart
The rain that will fall upon you
Will be enough to make you drown
Drown you with me inside
The dark cloud in your heart

Stars dissolve, sun grows old
As she awakens next to you
While I lay still in the light
Wishing for yesterday to return
Wishing to be sailed to last year
Wishing to sail off to that time
When you were mine

But what she won’t know is
I’ll keep myself in you
I’ll keep myself inside of you
I’ll be that cloud
Dark cloud in your heart
The rain that will fall upon you
Will be enough to make you drown
Drown you with me inside
The dark cloud in your heart
