There was a time when I thought myself clever.
Once upon a time I thought I was strong.
I told myself I would always be alone.
I told my heart that I didn't belong.

My heart didn't question, I simply believed.
My sight was clouded from all that was true.
I hid my soul and no other soul could see
The light that I held, the light I clung to.

I closed my eyes to try to keep out the dark.
My mind told me to never stop running.
Not once did I think of my heart feeling free.
I was blind, I did not see you coming.

But when I opened my eyes, the night was gone.
You saw my soul and did not run away.
I am free, a new world shines now before me.
You brought me light, the dawn of a new day.
