The eternal truth is there shall never be dark so long
That it is not followed by dawn.
I always thought you knew
When I gave you my heart
I also promised to spend the night with you.
I didn’t question how dark or how long it would be
I knew I could cradle your spirit
And it would always be safe with me.
I ask of you now to place your heart in my hands
Relinquish your thoughts and
I promise to heal you where I can.
I know your heart well and I feel the burn in your soul
Life’s cruel reality has left you shattered and torn
I promised you long ago that you would never be alone.
The darkness of night has swallowed a year
But the sweet smell of daybreak is gentle and near.
