WHERE THERE IS LIGHT

[2009]

The Carousel begins to slow
I take my chances
So far removed I fail to see;
the recklessness I've shown in all my words and deeds,
the good in other souls I never fail to see

Can you see the lights as far as the eyes can see,
from this point about the world,
where mortals dare their destiny
As it radiates, may I witness open eyed
Let me remain where there is light
In want of courage - it is a shield for me
In want of hope - it reassures and carries me
As it radiates, may I witness open eyed
Let me remain where there is light

Letting go was never easy
Risking all for what I wanted and never needed
Deliberated whether I should serve the cause of greater things,
as we moved worlds apart

The greatest words would still fail me now
These emotions I cannot describe
I want to be where I don't need to hide myself
and remain there till the end of time

The Gods play games with mortal hearts
as the Carousel goes round
As I looked on I saw the crowds
that had gathered walk away
