I know that there’s a reason why I need to be alone
I know that there’s a silent place that I can call my own
You know I get so weary from the battles in this life
And so many times it seems that you’re the only hope in sight
When everything’s dark, and nothing seems right,
You don’t have to win, and there’s no need to fight
I never cease to wonder at the cruelty of this land
But it seems a time of sadness is a time to understand
If only I could find a way
To feel your sweetness through the day
The love that shines around me could be mine.
