This song tells why I started writing lyrics and why I got back into music. Very nice lyric and instrumentals. I know you'll like it.

Story behind the song
This song woke me at 2AM and wouldn't let me back to sleep till it was on paper, hence the lyrics.
Lyrics
Sometimes I Write Sometimes I write because I’m touched In dreams in darkest night-------------------- {Chorus By restless spirits willing me To join them in their fight By children led to ruin by The poppies tears before It used and then deposited Them at perditions door By women left discarded Whose innocence was torn By tides of selfishness and lust Left empty and forlorn Sometimes I write because I’m touched In dreams in darkest night-------------------- {Chorus By restless spirits willing me To join them in their fight By men whose lives were wasted Pursuing greed’s foul gain To find their time and talents Had all been spent in vain With nothing left but emptiness With no-one at their side With naught but coins for counting With truth they can’t abide Sometimes I write because I’m touched In dreams in darkest night-------------------- {Chorus By restless spirits willing me To join them in their fight Instr.Brk They’re asking me to tell the tales Help someone on their way To recognize the pitfalls Before us every day To take the time and trouble To think where they will end To not go running blindly To what’s around the bend Sometimes I write because I’m touched In dreams in darkest night-------------------- {Chorus By restless spirits willing me To join them in their fight By restless spirits willing me To join them in their fight Copyright 2005 John W.
