Written in 1999, this song is reminiscent of Phantom of the Opera in certain respects. It was sponsored by Sandy Crump for which I am eternally grateful!


F:Sometimes in the darkness, I can hear your song
Sometimes in the darkness, it doesn’t feel so wrong
And sometimes, when you call out my name
I can feel desire rise like a fire in my veins
Sometimes as I dance through the night
I feel you holding me so tight

M:Don’t hold back so much, I can sense your fear
Don’t turn away from me, nothing can harm you here
You close your eyes as I kiss your hand
There’s fire in my softest touch a burn you will withstand
Sometimes as I dance through your dreams
I feel you fraying at the seams

F: Sometimes in the darkness, I can sense you’re there
And sometimes in the darkness, I wonder who you are
And sometimes I wish I would not wake
For I can feel the passion rise and I'm dancing with the flame
Sometimes as I lie awake in bed
I feel you laughing in my head

M: Sometimes from the shadows I hear you ask my name
And sometimes I whisper the same haunting refrain
Close your eyes and I’ll take you away
To where the passion burns so bright it changes night to day
Sometimes as that fire’s at its height
I’ll leave you waking in the night

F: Sometimes I wonder if I am blessed or cursed
And sometimes in the darkness, I wonder which is worse
To feel your touch and to then have you gone
Or to never feel that fire dance inside me with your song
Sometimes you’re enchantment’s greatest call
And sometimes you’re not there at all

F&M: Standing in the darkness, I can see your eyes
And what I see within them has caught me by surprise
The warmth of your smile, the love that I see
Is more than all the passion there between yourself and me
In my dreams I reach out my hand
And know you somehow understand
