What do they mean, the sounds of the night?
The outside of midnight is dark
Like the world is gone, as if it never
Had existed.

When I go to bed, sometimes I feel
Like I’m scared; the sounds are strange.
Each night is different. The cats do a meow
Sound, maybe because they are cold.

The sound of the wind is so slow,
And so quiet, but you can still hear it.
I hear what the outside carries, different
Sounds by the way the outside goes.

But when I wake up everything
Is like yesterday.
