Lost Light

Red lights turn on
When your heart goes blue
Reflect your lost light back to you
You’re still waiting in between the blackness and the bright you knew
Red lights feel so loud
When your heart stays blue

Just reach out and touch the sky
You’ll breathe better without the lies

I’ll refrain from falling with the rain
Are the words you use to sing your pain
From falling into you
And you won’t know the days I knew
Unless you have experienced the blue

It’s not enough to silence the truth
To bring your lost light back to you
Envision this dream without the blur that fools you into safety
Take up the hope that your heart could arrest the misery
Although you don’t know how to release the shackles from your bravery

If you could only see the darkness as it holds you in its arms
And that nothing now will leave you if you believe you’re safe from harm
You would awake and see with enough strength to see this through
Red lights turn on
When your heart goes blue
Reflect your lost light back to you

…Soft pink skies of quiet for a heart of faded blue…
