(from the CD A Man Alone)

I can just about get through the day,
But the night makes me nervous
Not for any reason.
Except maybe that it catches you unaware,
And follows you the way a woman follows
When she wants something..
(music interlude)
I’ve been in every kind of night,
Why, I shouldn’t be afraid of darkness,
But for some reason, the night makes me nervous.
(music to the end)

Note: what beautiful background music! Someone should write lyrics for them.
