MIDNIGHT HOUR

Into my dreary days
Rode hope on scented lines
In this pool of darkest deep
So bleak.. only love could find
A world of suffocating stench
Pulls me closer to the abyss
I close my eyes in surrender
Instead of death I feel a kiss 

A simple note scribbled out
Words that touched my soul
Is it enough to quench doubt 
How will the story now unfold
Does she see behind the muse
Is there a way in this black night 
A narrow path.. could I escape
Is this girl my guiding light

Cause when she says my name
It’s as if...  she is here
All these ominous storm clouds
She breathes out they disappear
Oh, there’s magic in her words
In her whisper there’s great power
Girl.. reach out and take my hand
Pull me from this midnight hour

If her sweet letter is a dream
Then I pray to never awake
If she’s not heaven’s angel
I’m falling hard for a mistake
I’m taken in by all her prose
God, I so want to believe
Release me from these chains
If this is the moment.. I receive 

Cause when she says my name
It’s as if...  she is here
All these ominous storm clouds
She breathes out they disappear
Oh, there’s magic in her words
In her whisper there’s great power
Girl.. reach out and take my hand
Pull me from this midnight hour

I believe.. Is that her touch
What a rush.. I receive

Cause when she says my name
It’s as if...  she is here
All these ominous storm clouds
She breathes out they disappear
Oh, there’s magic in her words
In her whisper there’s great power
Girl.. reach out and take my hand
Pull me from this midnight hour

It sounds like she could feel you, your heart- that tender ache inside. It isn't a dream, she is real. Her words hold hope, peace, happiness and love. It is wonderful that your heart is lifted, you should always soar in the sweet touch of the sky. In that Midnight Hour, she will take your hand and lift you even more. I know she will. I believe. Your thoughts wrap softly around me. ~ Brandy
