The Valley of Darkness
In the middle of nowhere, where the sun never shines
She was moving through the valley of darkness and trimming the vines
She was following voices; she was drinking her wine
She was thinking of choices she’d make somewhere down the line
I gave her a lift on the first night we met
She told me her gift was to make me forget
Our journeys entwined, the learning was mine
We were burning some time waiting for a best bet.
She was deep in the shadows, always looking for light
She was moving through the valley of darkness like a ghost through the night.
I told her nothing ever was wrong
She told me how hard it would be to be strong
She’d settled for less, she cleaned up her mess
And then she confessed this was taking too long.
She’s a child of the water, born a daughter of flight
She is moving through the valley of darkness like a ghost through the night.
She’s been cruising through the valley of darkness to set herself right.
She is moving though the valley of darkness like an angel to light.
