If I see you hiding in the night by a peppercorn tree
the tree it moves ,lets me see what I wanna see
a poison gaze´f your mind is all that´s worrying me

The pictures that I see are seen by no one else but me
to cause the night to be in sight ,a little point of me
I imagine nearly anything I want to see

Black veils of melancholy falling on me
black veils keep shadowing my mind
black veils that make my mind seem small

Black veils of melancholy falling on me
black veils keep shadowing my mind
black veils that make my mind seem small

I see you with my eyes closed getting closer and closer to me
I open my eye up and you´re not there ,it´s all in my mind

Black veils of melancholy falling on me
black veils keep shadowing my mind
black veils that make my mind seem small

Black veils of melancholy falling on me
black veils keep shadowing my mind
black veils that make my mind seem small ........
