if there be shadows

the shadows take over
i can't find the light
thought i watched the sun set
i'm surprised by the night

have i hit bottom
is there further to fall
will i give up
and surrender it all

how can i find
the will to go on
in a world full of lions
i feel like a fawn

i don't have the will
to cry anymore
all things so fantastic
have turned to a bore

my hopes are gone
my sprit is dead
the silence drowns out
the words in my head

the lightning has struck
for a second i could see
all that i was
and the nothing i'll be

i think that i
can make it now
don't ask me why
don't ask me how

i know what is wrong
so i can find what is right
for if there be shadows
there must be a light
