Meet Me in the Dark
by Melissa Etheridge



KEEP YOUR EYES DOWN, KEEP YOUR HEAD LOWERED, KEEP TO YOUR SELF DEAR, DO NOT TELL A SOUL.YOU KNOW IT'S WRONG, WHAT THEY'VE BEEN SAYIN'. AND YOU KNEW ALL ALONG, THAT I WOULD HAVE TO GO. FIND A PLACE WHERE LIGHT SHINES ON MY REFLECTION, A PLACE WHERE I CAN STAND UP ON MY OWN, NOT DOWN ON MY KNEES, until THEN PLEASE

MEET ME IN THE DARK, MEET ME IN THE SHADOWS, PAST THE OLD GRAVE YARD, DOWN EISENHOWER ROAD. MEET ME WHERE THE STORMS BLOW OUT ON THEIR OWN DEAR, MEET ME IN THE DARK AND NEVER LET ME GO.

I KNOW EVERY ONE HAS THEIR UNSPOKEN FEAR, IT EATS AWAY THEIR SENSES AND THEIR HUMANITY. THEY CARRY ALL THEIR SECRETS, EVERY NIGHT DOWN TO THE RIVER, AND THEY TRY SO HARD TO DROWN THEM, THEY WON'T DO THAT TO ME. CAUSE I'M WORKIN' HARD AND SAVIN' ALL MY MONEY, AND THE TIPS IN THIS JAR WILL BY A BRAND KNEW SET OF WINGS, FOR MY MURCURY, until THEN PLEASE

MEET ME IN THE DARK, MEET ME IN THE SHADOWS, PAST THE OLD GRAVE YARD, ON EISENHOWER ROAD. MEET ME WHERE THE STORMS BLOW OUT ON THEIR OWN DEAR, MEET ME IN THE DARK AND NEVER LET ME GO.

I COULD NEVER HIDE THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE, IF GOD MADE A MISTAKE, THEN I SHOULD DIE BEFORE I WAKE. MAYBE ITS MY FATE TO SWIM AGAINST THIS TIDE, SWALLOWING MY PRIDE. KEEP YOUR EYES DOWN, SAY THAT YOU DON'T KNOW ME. FOR I COULD NOT SURVIVE IF THEY TOOK YOU AWAY

MEET ME IN THE DARK, MEET ME IN THE SHADOWS, PAST THE OLD GRAVE YARD, DOWN EISENHOWER ROAD. MEET ME WHERE THE STORMS BLOW OUT ON THEIR OWN DEAR, MEET ME IN THE DARK,MEET ME IN THE DARK, MEET ME IN THE DARK
