And 1988. Recorded July 28th, 1988.


Tell me where
Does it say
When you're lost you stay that way
Why a forest of fools getting in the way
Cannot hear, cannot fade with the nightsong.

Nightsong, from my heart
Why not keep on
Singing anyway.

All alone
I reflect on my demons in the night
Some are wise,
Some are good,
Some are not so bright.
I can't hear.
Sing along with the nightsong.

Nightsong, from my heart
Why not keep on
Singing anyway.

Why not keep on singing anyway?

Run away.
I don't know what it was
Led you astray,
Just because you're too much like I am anyway.
I will come
You can't hide
>From the nightsong.

Nightsong, from my heart
Why not keep on
Singing anyway.

Why not keep on singing anyway?
