Halloween – #29

Hey little dreamer’s eyes open and staring up at me
Oh little lonely eyes open and radiant

Wait until I come and I will steal you
Wait until I come I’ll take your soul
Wait until I come and I will steal you
Wait until I come and I won’t go

Darlin’ dreamin in the night
Shadows on the windows
Lead oh and everyone go
Well leave me on the night
I will give you lightning
I will not relinquish light

Oh little dreamer eyes open and raving here

Wait until I come and see you little girl
When we come I’ll leave with you too
When we come I’ll let you come low

Hey we’ll leave it all behind
Oh and then the nightmares
I’ll fill them in good time
Oh they will seat your mind
When the light hits
And you maybe’ll ask me

Why do you run around here
Why do you come inside of me
Why does it rip me out in dream
Why then why then watch this little ****

Going away

Why this lonely
Why this lonely
Why this lonely love

Why this lonely
Why this lonely
Why this lonely love

Halloween
Carry on
Bury all
Bury all
Bury all
Bury all
Bury all

And in this dream
Tell us are you satisfied with *******

Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away
Don’t walk away
I’m talking to you

Love is hell
Love is hell
Love is hell
Love this I’ll tame you

Love
Love
Love
Love this not me here

Love
Love
Love
Love him up to you

This one’s based on the Dave Matthews Band song Halloween.

I really, honestly (!) started this piece out as a happy, tranquil piece based on the song Shambala by Three Dog Night. And then, well….it just started to go south. :)

The “darker” pieces seem to come easier to me. I had a watercolor professor in college, and at the time I was doing a series of graveyard paintings in her class. She asked me if “everything was ok with me.” I laughed and told her I was fine, but I suppose that she did the proper thing in asking. I’ve just always liked doing darker pieces.
