I walk home;
Alone in the dark
All of my worries transpire from under the shadows, and reveal themselves
My whole way home:
No a mile yet left behind
No, I will not look up from the pavement
I just might fall through the cracks
I do not know what lies behind me-
Following me home through the dark
One by one I watch as the streetlights go out;
I am not alone anymore
I pass an old friend I do not wish to talk to.
His name is Depression:
And he's following me home
I must have crossed paths with a black cat-
Oh my sweet child, all cats are black in the dark
