Can't stand another night alone
Dreams of you keep taking hold
I sit here waiting, I sit here shaking
As darkness falls my darkness grows

Circle the bed as sun goes down
Feelings of dread begin to pound
Through my system, then I miss them
Faces I had tossed around

What caused this nightsong?
Bed of nails I'm sleeping on
Don't treat with a demon tongue

Fall under the dark, fall under your spell
Intoxicated, just as well
Cause I need something but only one thing
Will ease the burn, I'm too drunk to tell

We lie together I lie alone
She reaches over, a stifled moan
Give her something but give her nothing
And dream of the one that made this

Bed of nails I'm sleeping on
Her voice wails, her fingers drum
Don't treat with a demon tongue

Can't stand another night alone
Can't stand the thought of you in tow
To another, I shudder
The body next to me slides close
