Tonight, this night.

Tonight, this night

I have accumulated myself together

To compose this letter, this statement

Of love and regret.

Tonight, this night

I watch the stars sparkle and glimmer

Praying that somebody else

Can understand what I have become.

A ghost, a nothing, a nobody.

Zero, nought, nil.

Time and time again i have tried to clamber

Up the ladder to happiness again.

But I am towed down

By a heavy and invisible force.

My last words are

Tonight, this night,

Tonight, this night,

I have accumulated myself

To compose this letter, this statement

Of love and regret.

Tonight, this night,

I watch the stars sparkle and glimmer

Praying that somebody else

Can understand what I have become.

A ghost, a nothing, a nobody.

Zero, nought, nil.

Time and time again I have tried to clamber

Up the ladder to happiness again.

But I am towed down

By a heavy and invisible force.

My last words are

Tonight, this night

All the umbrellas in the whole of Seattle

Cannot stop the poignancy showering my head.

The End
