Don’t You Know the Night?

from When I Was In My Room by Charles Jenkins



Don’t you know the night
Swims in stars?
In washed up streets and sodden bars
In broken chords spilt by cheap guitars

Don’t you know the night
Paints the square
With laughter thrown high into the air?
From inside the fountain as you tie up your hair

Don't you know the storms will come and go?
With lightning strikes and a rumbling show
And when you're lost…

Don't you know the night
At its best
Puts the darkest of days to rest?
In a simple turn with a slow caress
