DARKNESS SINGS THE BLUES

Darkness sings the blues tonight, 

For an audience of broken dreams, 

Wrapped tight in cloaks of moonlight, 

Shadows dance in the headlight beams, 

 

Darkness sings the blues tonight,

As the wind blows cold down the street, 

Lovers keep warm with hot kisses, 

While the beggar is sat at their feet, 

 

Darkness sings the blues tonight, 

To a chorus of siren screams, 

Stark silhouettes and flashing lights, 

Fallen angels in tee shirts and jeans, 

 

Darkness sings the blues tonight, 

For those that hear the tune, 

Those who walk the broken path, 

Warriors of the moon, 

 

Darkness sings the blues tonight, 

For the lost and lonely souls, 

That wanders along the embankment , 

The bell of Big Ben tolls, 

 

Darkness sings the blues tonight, 

Beneath the hubbub of the crowd, 

Laughter gives way to anger, 

Shouts of fear grow fast and loud, 

 

Darkness sings the blues tonight,

Pounding hard to a percussive beat, 

Waves of revellers turn to flee, 

Running quickly down the street, 

 

Darkness sings the blues tonight, 

Panic takes control,

Bars empty out onto pavements, 

As evil seeks it’s goal, 

 

Darkness sings the blues tonight, 

Responses are brutal & swift, 

Staccato cracks, flame and fire, 

Bodies lay where the gun smoke drifts, 

 

Darkness sings the blues tonight, 

The city reclaims it’s shield, 

Wounds of a confidence shattered, 

Slowly begin to be healed, 

 

Darkness sings the blues tonight, 

A song of defiance and pride, 

We are all part of the battle,

We are the ones that survived.
