Something's strange about this hot April night-
'Cause I just can't switch off my dim bedroom light.
The mass of swirling thoughts inside my head-
Is doing enough to keep me away from my bed.
I strain my ears and listen,to the sounds of the night-
The occasional cry of the night-bird,
The distant barking of a stray,
The familiar,eerie whistle of the night-guard-
And the screeching of tyres on the highway.
As I look out the window and breathe in the night air,
The night whispers something into my ear.
And just like that they all go away-
The lonely hours and the tears-
The despair and the sad years.
The chiming of the clock tells me it's three.
And I know this night has finally set me free.
I am free to make my own roads.
I am free to dream and fight all the odds.
Ah! now I want to sink into a deep sleep.
I just realized I have numerous promises to keep.
And I know when I wake up to a new tomorrow.
My heart will be empty of all the bitterness and the sorrow.
