Tonight Will Be The Last

Shake up the bottle

Mix the ingredients

The elixir must be right

It needs to invigorate me

Get me through this night

As shadows creep in

And your memory haunts

I must be vigilant

And be ready for anything

You said you would haunt me

And it appears you were right

But tonight will be different

I will draw on my strength

To meet you head on

And face the demons

You brought to my life

You will no longer

Bring me fear from your grave

I drink down my liquid courage

And wait for your memory

To visit one last time
