Shrinking Violet by Mostly Autumn
Safe until the darkness falls
To loneliness a demon calls
Creeping in, arousing my fears
To breathe a language that noone else hears
Can I cope alone tonight?
The shrinking violet I've become inside
To you I may seem insecure
But did you know me what I was before?
I remember dancing as a child
A careless confidence danced with me
Whatever happened to the sun?
Only seemed to notice when it had gone
Lead me back to where it seems
I danced alone in sunlit dreams
Unafraid to play with fire
With a view through a child's eyes, naive and wild
