You Can’t Turn Off The Night

Peace came running, like she come before
But there’s no mercy knocking at my door
In the quiet of the evening, come battle and bruise
With the armor of day light, now removed
You can ready your horses, you can put up a fight
But you can’t turn off the night

Homesick water finds a resting place
Stillness survives in a hurricane
With the storm coming on, they tell us to pray
So we’re down on our knees every day
All of us searching for someplace to hide
‘Cause you can’t turn off the night

Static, all this static flying round and round
Like a record caught in the grooves after the song’s played out

Drums sit empty when the hit is done
Music lets go after notes are sung
But oh, here we are awake in our beds
On the seams of regret, we’re pulling at threads
We try and we try to make dark into light
But you can’t turn off the night
