My Dark Place 

Jeff Riley

 

I was sitting around watching the TV.

Or is the TV watching me?

I never liked that look upon your face.

You wouldn’t let me drag you into my dark place.

 

Don’t run away. 

Don’t take it away from me.

Just sit and relax for awhile

Just sit and let’s talk for awhile in my dark place.

Talk in my dark place.

 

I don’t know why the goldfish is smiling at me

Or why you decided you walk through the seaweed.

You always have that strange look on your face.

You never tell me what’s on your mind.

Why won’t you let me into your dark place?

 

Don’t run away. 

Don’t take it away from me.

Just sit and relax for awhile

Just sit and let’s talk for awhile in my dark place.

In my dark place.

 

So I screamed out your name hoping you’d look at me.

And when you turn your eyes burned a hole through me.

That’s exactly the look I cannot take

You slight smile melts my wax

As I smell the leather and lace in your dark place.

 

Don’t run away. 

Don’t take it away from me.

Just sit and relax for awhile

Just sit and let’s talk for awhile in my dark place.

In my dark place.
