One of the original Stenders songs, cool latin bit with some good piano and "trumpet"


Quiet she is calling
Who will help her through the night?
Single teardrop sounds so faintly
Did you hear it right?

Pillow stifles weary eyes that
Spring quick flowing tears
Innocent face looks much younger
Than her careworn years

Once loved fairy tales she read
Now grimly taste of lead
Magic wishes never true,
Once upon a time dead.

She begs for sleep
Strongly she weeps
Still she can't escape
Nameless demons who her
Short lived peacefulness rape.

Cold scared and left alone
Through the night she finds her way
No help from the world
Her demons, only she must slay

As time passes her tears slow and
The night sees dry eyes
She drifts to sleep, but deep inside
Her torn heart still cries
