On Your Worst Nights


United States
34° 33' 42.6456" N, 98° 14' 35.43" W

When all is said and done

When the light of day is gone

When the single key is turned

And the old dust greets

 the lights are put on,

When the familiar lends to desire

And the beautiful

you’ve created leaves you empty

When you roam the halls for hours

And there’s nothing new to see

When your reflection leaves you lonely

And you little heart won’t stop

When your heavy head hits

the waves of your lost pillow

And your over-worked mind

can’t help but rewind

When your thoughts intertwine

When the numbers and jumping sheep

won’t put you to sleep

When the tears well up

and you’re feeling down

I do hope you find

somebody to love.
