Singing in the dark
Friday night on my own
Electricity’s off
From the evil Derecho show
My doggy's afraid
And chases the flashlight rays
Only your voice through the phone
Can keep me un-alone

Trying to kill time
Seems it’s all we’ve got
So I’ll sing you a song
And tell you I just made it up
While I play my guitar
And sing across town cell towers
Connections breaks down
And we don’t know for how long

I don’t wanna hang up
I just want to get back to our conversation
Will you still be there for me when I’m singing the dark?

Trying to fall asleep
The room is pitch black dark
‘cept the dance of the flame
from the candle sketches shadows above
it’s stifling hot and I tussle and toss about
Tomorrow comes slow
Then everyone will know

I really want this to end
I just wanna get back to the life that we had
Where I’m not wondering if I’ll be
Singing in the dark
