Night Falls in Manchester

I kissed you goodbye,
watched you walk out the door
How was I to know
I wouldn’t kiss you anymore?

When we woke on that morning,
it was just another day
Never could I have dreamed
that you’d be stolen away

How is it the world doesn’t stop
when so many shattered hearts break?
Where are heaven’s angels
when the sky’s on fire with rage?

Darkness falls on Manchester
while the minions of Satan laugh
Does love still exist inside of man
or am I a fool to even ask?

Surely terror is the refuge of cowards
But to commit such a murderous act!
Where is heaven’s justice
to drive the demons back?

A city mourns in silence
Even the birds forget to sing
It seems there are no limits to evil
and the sadness it can bring

A river of tears is powerless
to wash away the pain
I’d give all my days but one
just to see you smile again.
