Nightingale, oh, Nightingale,
Sing me your song.
You only visit me by moonlight,
When the stars are bright,
And nothing seems wrong.

Why do you only visit me at night?
Am I not worthy of you in the day?
Do I only shine brightly enough for
You when I’m surrounded by my darkness?

Oh Nightingale;
Do you come for the light of the stars
Or to feed off my darkest thoughts?
I answer your call the only way I can,
By giving you everything that you demand.

Nightingale, oh, Nightingale,
Sing me your song.
There’s only a few hours left till dawn,
And then you’ll be gone from me for another night.
But I cherish my day dreams of you, they give me the
will to fight.
