The sunlight pushes itself out to rise against the sky,
so to the night I've grown so fond, i must sadly say goodbye.
the daylight comes and rips away the solemnity of night,
the revelation its accompanied by i always try to fight.
the revelation that my true colors shine in the glowing light of day,
the hold of daylight shows my scars, its grip i cannot sway.
the truth that come with daylight causes my very heart to chafe,
the nights my only friend now, and the only place i'm safe.
