Only In The Dark

Soft, down
by the window
I search with my eyes closed
soft, down
by the window 
I search with my eyes closed

hard to hear
when you said you didn't know

My stomach drank it all too slow

and I
touch the wet paint
and mark a trial down with my toes

All colors
day glow

The lights went off and there it showed
how is it
only in the dark you know
