Darkness falls

(Text: C-W. Rasch, Musik: J. Lindgren)

 

I can’t believe this summer could pass us by so fast
all those sunny days when we took walks along the beach
but now it’s oh so clear to me, good things never last
winter’s here and summertime is out of reach

Darkness falls... the night is cold and shadows dance on naked walls
but we keep warm and sheltered from the storm outside
and in the glowing firelight...we can do the things we did
that summer night

I guess I should be happy, I should appreciate
the things that we still have when our summer dream is gone
but sometimes I am worried that maybe it’s too late
I feel I’m getting weary but I must keep holding on

Hold me tight, we can scare the ghosts away
it’s all right, don’t let them know you are afraid
 
Darkness falls... the night is cold and shadows dance on naked walls
but we keep warm and sheltered from the storm outside
and in the glowing firelight... we can do the things we did
that summer night

I’m still here, to give you shelter from the storm
Hold me close, the night is cold, but we keep warm
