Midnight City

The Late Isabel

Walk swift
As the light shifts
Dampen my lips
Wet earth on my fingertips

Past the flicker of lights
On moonlit nights (I can see nobody else)
Parading down
Is the sorry crown
(Who’s to know where she could go?)

I am tiptoeing, no way of knowing
Take everything, save for my heart

She weeps
As the day creeps
Sandman crosses
Up a flight of stairs
He blows his kisses

Walks are long and lonely
Down midnight city
The streets are dark and empty
Down midnight city
