Lights

Lights (v1, Original)
Sometimes
Even I
get tired of the dark
hiding
secreting away
And sometimes
even when I find a way out
I don't take it
Because leaving would mean
losing the small shield
protection
or maybe
it's blinding me instead.

Lights (v2)
Sometimes
Even I
get tired of the dark
hiding
secreting away
And sometimes
even when I find a way out
I don't take it
Because leaving would mean
losing the small shield
protection
or maybe
it's blinding me instead.
have I been like this
the whole time
or is it everyone else
burying themselves
I won't die like this
stuck in a hole
I made for myself
It's time to climb out
this time there's no backing down
not going down without a fight
not gonna let my heart decide
thinking things through
everything's changing
I won't go without you
always by my side
standing in the lights.

Lights (v3)
verse 1:
Sometimes
Even I get tired of the dark
hiding, pushing away
And sometimes
it's blinding me instead

chorus:
even when I find a way out
I don't take it
because leaving would mean
losing the small shield of protection
I won't die like this
stuck in a hole
I made for myself
It's time to climb out

verse 2:
have I been like this the whole time
or is it everyone else, burying themselves
this time there's no backing down
not going down without a fight
not gonna let my heart decide

chorus:
even when I find a way out
I don't take it
because leaving would mean
losing the small shield of protection
I won't die like this
stuck in a hole
I made for myself
It's time to climb out

bridge:
thinking things through
everything's changing
I won't go without you
always by my side
standing in the lights

chorus:
even when I find a way out
I don't take it
because leaving would mean
losing the small shield of protection
I won't die like this
stuck in a hole
I made for myself
It's time to climb out

?????
I found a way out
this time I'm taking it
leaving means
getting back what I lost
time will kill the empty hole
Someone else had put me in
I'm climbing out

The End
