St. Elmo's Fire

The day burns, the night turns The world still fades away The sun sets as my regrets Are left inside of me A cloud forms, a world storms All else still fades away I'm lost here, with only fear My soul could never stay And suddenly, all nature cries The night fades in the empty skies And I know beauty, I know pain My world has faded once again The lights spark, the life's dark My eyes are scarred again The night drifts, my soul rifts As all is lost to rain I'm transfixed, the clouds, mixed, Confound all I have seen I'm lost now, and know how The night is what I've been Once more, I see all nature cry And deep inside my inner eye The darkness sparks the question, Why the soul could never die
