lyrics

The twins have shared a room since they were born
And since that day time has relentlessly marched on
Now they are older it is time to separate
So I’ve got beds to build and rooms to decorate

I’m clearing out the junk from our spare room
With both a sense of wonder and impending doom
That every second, every hour slips through our hand
There is no safe deposit box, no on-demand

But don’t be afraid of the dark
Don’t be afraid oh trembling heart
Sometimes I cower, sometimes I hide
But I need more than time on my side

So I’m trying not to think about it all
Like I avoid the pictures on the kitchen wall
Of yesterdays that I never re-create
Can’t travel back towards to fix all my mistakes

But don’t be afraid of the dark
Don’t be afraid oh thankless heart
Sometimes I cower, sometimes I hide
But I need more than time on my side

So as the quietness descends upon our home
And for the first time late at night you are alone
As I lean in to whisper prayers in your ear
The words I choose will be the ones you need to hear

But don’t be afraid of the dark
Don’t be afraid oh trembling heart
No need to cower, no need to hide
And I need more than time on my side
