To See Light

I'll be waiting
Across the ocean
The same star bright overhead
You said that our lives are a story
But you don't want to know the end

Don't break my dreams
Instead of breaking my fall

I can run
Towards another day
The joy shouldn't have faded yet
So I will smile
Mean it while it's possible
And I will fly
And reach that day with open arms
'Cause I know now
To see light

I see through it
The darkness building
Too much to scatter now
I know that this isn't the way it was
But it's too late to turn back

You've torn away
Everything I have wanted

I can run
Towards another day
The joy shouldn't have faded yet
So I will smile
Mean it while it's possible
And I will fly
And reach that day with open arms
'Cause I know now
To see light

All the corners I have turned
All the lessons I hav elearned
They came crashing down around me
Every notice on my wall
Everytime I've reached a downfall
Have led me to now see
O-o-oh

I can run
Towards another day
The joy shouldn't have faded yet
So I will smile
Mean it while it's possible
And I will fly
And reach that day with open arms
'Cause I know now

I can run
Towards another day
The joy shouldn't have faded yet
So I will smile
Mean it while it's possible
And I will fly
And reach that day with open arms
'Cause the rain has cleared
The darkness has disappeared
And I know now
To see light

I wrote this when I was still teaching myself to play guitar (and still wasn't a massive fan of rhyming), something which took me approximately 4 years to accomplish... Not that I'm particularly good at it now.
