about

Darkwave electro industrial rock, electronic drums, pulsing synth bass & electric guitar, breathy vocals, heartfelt lyrics of grief, sad times, and being there for someone in need. I'm gonna be your guide when it's dark outside. Release timed for Halloween. You can also catch the accompanying scary, glitchy animated video on my YouTube channel.

lyrics

[verse 1]
When it's dark outside
When your dreams have been denied
When with everything you've tried
To remain dignified
You can no longer abide
And you're starting to slide
I'll help you take it in stride
I'm gonna be your guide
When it's dark outside
When it's dark outside

[verse 2]
In the middle of the night
When you wake up in a fright
When your fists are clenched tight
But you've lost all your fight
When the future isn't bright
And there's no relief in sight
I'll help you make things right
I'll walk you toward the light
In the middle of the night
In the middle of the night

[verse 3]
When the wind starts to blow
And you need somewhere to go
But you've got nothing to show
And all the locals say no
When time is moving slow
And your sadness starts to grow
I'll help you handle like a pro
And move with the flow
When the wind starts to blow
When the wind starts to blow

[bridge]
When you start to feel a chill
And your heart goes still
When the night gets colder
You can lean into my shoulder
And before the winter's over
I'll bring you a four-leaf clover
And when you're staring across the divide
I'll build you a bridge to the other side

[guitar fill]

[verse 4]
When there's a knock on the door
And it cuts you to the core
Because you know what it's for
And you're not sure
If you can take much more
But that's what's in store
I'll pick you up off the floor
Help you prepare for that war
When there's a knock on the door
When there's a knock on the door

[guitar fill]

[verse 1 reprise]
When it's dark outside
When your dreams have been denied
When with everything you've tried
To remain dignified
You're starting to slide
And now you've broken down and cried
I'll help you take it in stride
I'm gonna be your guide
When it's dark outside
When it's dark outside
