The world is asleep
but my mind is awake
the silence is shattered
as my heart longs and aches.

The night is still long
the dawn still awaits
the stillness is pierced
by cries of stray cats.

The howling wind
shakes and it trembles
my body it shivers
and I quiver like candles.

The world is asleep
it falls and it ebbs
oh, I wish so to hear
the sound of your steps.
