Sophie B. Hawkins Nocturne Lyrics

Nightmare bring me to the dawn

I must ride your body on

Deep inside me I know you can’t hide me from harm

I’m the secret that you bear

Born of anger and despair

Who will strangle me

Who will untangle my hair

Come to me I can see

Through the holes in your eyes

When I scream out in terror

You’ve the one by my side

Run to me strong and pure

As the monster’s child

We’ve been captured for a lifetime

But we’ve free when we’re wild

Sleep my little darling




for mamma

She’s all gone

Nightmare came and took her in his arms

Find your dark horse

And ride on your course

Through the storm

Lay me down you can see

Through the rain in my eyes

That I’ve no more to lose

And I’ve nothing to hide

Playing in midnight fields

Of dreams exiled

We are strangers in the city

But we’re free when we’re wild
