Afterglow     by: MacDonald, Andrew

Lost! Nae hame at aa
Dinna ken far I'm gaun
Dinna ken far I've bin
It's affa cauld oot
Ma fitpreints are affa faint
I need a bannock tae settle ma kite.

Darkness draain in affa faist
Ma mates are foo nae doot
Staggerin hame
Whilst I'm staggerin tae darkness
Gettin mair an mair lost wi every step
Shiverin richt intae ma soul.
