I throw this to the wind
But what if I was right?
Well did you trust your noble dreams and
gentle expectations to the mercy of the night?

The night will always win
The night has darkness on it's side
I throw this to the wind

I miss your stupid face
I miss your bad advice
I tried to clothe your bones with scratchy
super 8's, exaggerated stories and old tunes

But never by the moon
And not the state I'm in
The night will always win

I throw this to the wind
Oh what if I was right?
Well did you trust your noble dreams and
gentle expectations to the mercy of the night?

The night will always win
The night has darkness on it's side
I throw this to the wind

I miss your stupid face
I miss your bad advice
I tried to clothe your bones with scratchy
super 8's, exaggerated stories and old tunes

But never by the moon
And never the state I'm in
The night will always win...

    Do not think about a love one lost at night the grief will over take you in the solitude of being alone at night in the dark
