Trapped, dwelling in the dark…

St. Valentine’s Day.  The hero seeks the light.  He’s trapped, dwelling in the dark…

“Her voice, calls out, echoes in the darkness.  A twisted laugh screaming and bellowing throughout the hall, and I’m surrounded by funhouse mirrors.  I know that laugh, I recognize the perfume.  She might smell real nice.  Yea she might act real pretty.  But there’s a demon inside.   It stalks me in the city.  Sherri.  Sherri.  My ol’ darling in the dark of the night.  I know you’re there.  Sherri.  Oh, Sherri…”

Music and Lyrics by Ren Michael

Tonight I fly but I’m feeling numb
My eyes are open wide I can hardly see
I wonder why tonight as I walk these streets
Though your miles behind, I feel you loomin’ over me

We were kids I know when I saw you last
I knew right then and there I’d never see you again
So tell me how then with every fortune I come across
Does it so easily slip right through my hands

Oh Sherri you’re the evil kind
I heard about you in a dream I had before
How you’d curse young men and poison their feeble minds
The moment they took one step outside your door

I’m just a brown-eyed boy from Louisiana town
Touch was all I wanted, love was all I prized
Though I hope that it’s all masked in some strange disguise
Baby you are proof that love has a dark, dark side

Oh Sherri you’re the evil kind
I heard about you in a dream I had before
How you’d curse young men and poison their feeble minds
The moment they took one step outside your door
