sometimetimes
late at night
or in the early morning dew
whata' ya' do'
let life creep in
ain't no sin
just try ta' begin
agin'
and agin'

sometimes when it rains
and i go insanes
with the pains
i get migranes
whose ta' blanes?

sometimes it's so dark
the darkness is so stark
i hear an old dog bark
clear as a lark
a hummingbird
yeah that one i heard

and times grains
of sand
pass me by
with a good-bye
i can hardly stand
don't understand
tho' i be a man

and i wonder why?
i wander, i cry
but will i ever die?
should i even try?

sometimes
when it's only night
i light a candle
and i write
then i can handle
daylight

i know it ain't write
but a candle
i can handle
betterin' daylight
betterin' the night
betterin' wrong & right

just a distant flame
they ain't all the same
who's to blame?
same old game

a distant light
daylight
a long lost write
a candle in the night
