Wort-Bilder 14

„She’s dressed in black again
and I’m falling down again
down to the floor again
I’m begging for more again
but oh what can you do 
when she’s dressed in black
My mind wanders endlessly
on paths where she’s leading me 
with games that she likes to play
and words that she doesn’t say
not when we’re alone
and she’s dressed in black
As a picture of herself
she’s a picture of the world
a reflection of you
a reflection of me
and it’s all there to see
if you only give in 
to the fire within
Dressed in black again
Shadows fall onto me
she stands there over me
and waits to encompass me
I lay here helplessly
but oh what can you do 
when she’s dressed in black“
