It grabs me by the shoulders
And it throws me in the cold
Locking me
In a cage
But the cage
A cage of tattered hopes
Broken hearts
Forgotten dreams
A cage
Inside my mind
As hard as I try
I can't escape
I see the key
A golden ray of hope
Just outside my reach.
A shadow lurks behind me
Beckoning
Calling
For me
I stretch
For that key
My last chance
My only chance
My fingers
Are drawing closer
And closer.
I gently brush the key
Before I fall
Under its shadow
Crushing
The last thing I see
Before I give in
Is the glint of light
Of the key
The key of hope
