She came to me one morning
One lonely Sunday morning
Her long hair flowing
In the midwinter wind
I know not how she found me
For in darkness I was walking
And destruction lay around me
From a fight I could not win
Ah ah ah ...

    Lady in black

    He finds himself on a lonely Sunday morning in the winter on a windy day when he meets her. The Lady in Black is Death. He asks the question; how did my life end up like this. How can death be at my doorstep. Destruction lays around him from a fight he cannot win. He is all alone and has no wish to live. He wants to self destruct. The destruction lays around me from a fight I can not win. He sees no choice but to commit suicide. This is his battle. The want to die is his foe. All men die and will fear God in the end. Death meets him face to face he makes his choice. Give me horses To trample down my enemy. Horses are the drugs (LSD, Cocaine, Heroine)he uses to kill himself. The enemy is himself, the demons inside him. He must kill himself to get rid of the pain and hurt. Drugs will make the pain go away. He hates life and wants to die. As all man will die and fear God in the end. As he nears death he says to her take me, let me die. Let me lay with you. She would not think of battle. As He faces death, he realizes there is more to life and gains the courage to over come his wasteful thoughts and to live and keep going. Courage to walk alone. Each time he thinks of death his heart is strong and says no. Trust your thoughts and know I will not take you until I'm ready. As you meet death, or become troubled, alone, you overcome those thoughts and become wiser and stronger. A will to live. Life is the prize for having the courage to live.
