The night is closing in around me,
Putting its palm upon my head
And holding gently in the corner
The steep caress of my heartbreak.
His eyes would linger for a moment,
His breath would wind itself to me;
This tease, this laugh, this persuasion -
I am resolved, I shall not steer.
I cannot stoop along the shadows,
I cannot keep the promise heard,
The night is closing in around me –
So swift, so innocent, so hurt…
