The terror of the night draws near
Keep still my heart it may not hear
A drama that each life endured
While hour to hour we are inured.
The smallest sound becomes a threat
We have not found our solace yet
Elusive peace where have you gone
Into the land that lies beyond ?
Say can you tell me what is there
Or will you guess how I shall fare
It matters not for who can know
What lies beyond each new shadow ?
