Dark Places (song lyrics, Tuscon, 1998)

Standard

it’s cool and quiet here
and you’re all alone
stay very still
don’t move around
you’re safe
no one can touch you in your dark place

dark places deep in your soul
safe places no one else goes

someone’s knocking
you let them in; you say
“stay very still
don’t move around”
it’s not safe
someone’s touching you in your dark place

dark places deep in your soul
safe places no one else goes

banging in to things unknown
now you’re not alone
no one’s still
you move around
no longer safe
bruising yourself in your dark place

dark places deep in your soul
safe places no one else goes
