from by The Peach Tree



The Second Night


It was 36 degrees outside today.
I'm sorry 'bout the party but I couldn't stay.
And on the way home I took the longer way,
Then I met you at the stroke of 12.

It was windy and rainy in the afternoon.
Somebody help me cos I'm slipping into the Gloom.
Black and Purple comes melting into the room,
And I'll meet you at the gates of Hell.

It was pouring rain and I was locked outside.
A multitude of colours in the morning light.
I tried to grit my teeth and ignore the fight,
But they beat me, with their game of stealth.

I'm a rich man, but I have no worth.
Undercover from a rain of filth.
I believe, but I have no faith.
The Tower comes crashing to the earth.
