Eve Of Mourning

(Vs)
Hiding in nooks and crannies, shadows are his friend
The fog gives him a blanket, streetlights can't peek in
Sirens in the distance, scream out for him tonight
The darkness is his comfort, the cloak that he holds tight

(Ch)
It's the eve,
eve of mourning,
tears fall like the rain
On this eve,
eve of mourning,
she's crying in her pain
She's battered and bruised
been hit and abused
On this eve,
eve of mourning

(Vs)
A dog is barking somewhere, car horns pierce the air
a cacophony of city voices are everywhere
Hugging an alley wall, he moves along his way,
followed by a figure that wants to make him pay

(Ch)
It's the eve,
eve of mourning,
tears fall like the rain
On this eve,
eve of mourning,
she's crying in her pain
She's battered and bruised
been hit and abused
On this eve,

(Bridge)
He hears a sound, he turns around
as the hammers coming down.
He couldn't run from her father's gun
that followed him through town

(End Ch)
It's the eve,
eve of mourning,
tears fall like the rain
On this eve,
eve of mourning,
she's crying in her pain
Daddy's on the run
but the deed is done
On this eve of mourning
daddy's on the run

Thanks Dave! Six years ago I decided to start sharing my lyrics online for people to actually see. With the help of members in the lyric section here and elsewhere, I've grown some in writing and got to meet and work with musicians and collaborators. I have forums such as SongRamp to thank.

Nice feel to this song. Your guy Simon did a great job creating music for your lyrics, well performed instruments and vocals.
