I don’t want to go to sleep and face tomorrow,
I just want to stay hidden in the shadow,
Drowning my sorrows.

Can I remain asleep,
So that I will not have to weep,
Over the promises I cannot keep.

I have let myself and others down,
And how am I supposed to face the town,
Without a mental breakdown.

I want to cry my heart out and drown in tears,
I have disappointed you, my dear,
And now all I want is to disappear.

To the dark, I shall go,
To somewhere, no one can follow,
Just leave me here, alone, in the shadow.

Down, down below.
