​The Queen Of Small Dark Places

This song is by Sleeping Prophet and appears on the album The Alpha Sessions (2000).

My queen of contradiction
You're a royal mystery
With your sweet benediction
Forgive me, set me free
My queen of possibility
Of all the lies yet unsaid
A twisted poetic soliloquy
Dancing in your head

You were my sweet candlelight
So tender and so true
So why am I now so alone?
I burned myself on you
You never seemed
To ever hear or heed a word I said
So why'd you have to start now?
Oh, why'd you have to start now?

My gentle queen of pain
Hold me in your misery
Let us stand out in the rain
Insane together, let us be
My queen of small dark places
Darkness without fear
Only warm embraces
As I held you near

You were my sweet candlelight
So tender and so true
So why am I now so alone?
I burned myself on you
You never seemed
To ever hear or heed a word I said
So why'd you have to start now?
Oh, why'd you have to start now?
