Everything comes from out of the dark,

That is where the demons play,

Where dreams become nightmares,

And wishes turn to lies,

In the dark,

That is where secrets become an ugly truth,

Where masks are ripped from faces,

Memories torn from happy places,

When you're alone,

Everything comes out of the dark,

It lures you with false pretenses,

And fake senses,

Darkness is a scary place,

Where monsters lay,

And shadows linger,

But from out of the darkness,

There is always light,

Bright and shining,

It isn't always at its strongest,

But it is always very blinding,

You brought me from the darkness,

My burning light,

And wondrous guardian.
