When the night comes

Lately, I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog. In part that’s because I’m going through some hard times, and I haven’t known how much to share here. I don’t want to sound whiny. Or maybe I’m just afraid that putting it in writing will make it more real.

I am having some health problems involving my hearing and tinnitus and headaches and aural fullness blah blah blah it’s boring but it’s really been getting me down. During the day I can usually tamp down the anxiety that comes with having a bothersome and unpredictable set of symptoms, but at night I’ve been waking up in a sweaty panic, unable to get back to sleep amidst the cacophony in my ears. Graham has been a saint, rubbing my back, assuring me that things will get better, and I can’t thank him enough.  I don’t know what I’d do without you, mister.

When the night comes
And you lay your weary head to rest
No more trials no tests
When the night comes
When the night comes
You don`t have to be afraid
Of any choice you made
When the night comes

Don`t be afraid
You`re only dreaming

Don`t be afraid
You`re only dreaming

When the night comes
The headlines read
Whatever`s in your dreams
When the night comes

When the night comes
And you lay by the one you love
The one who knows you and the things you do
When the night comes

Don`t be afraid
You`re only dreaming

Don’t be afraid
