I stand on my own with a beast that has grown
With its evil and menacing eyes
And some days I fight him and some days I let him win
His bite seems to crave my demise
He takes away, he takes me away

I am the only one who sees him, it's lonely
And my temperament seems selfish and strange
Invisible to most he's the dark haunting ghost
That has dragged me along in his chains once again once again
And still there is no one to blame

Then you came along with your poem, a song
That acknowledged me right where I stand
And though it won't stop me from feeling the drop
It just fuels me with fire and flame
Keeps me strong keeps me strong

'Cause you found me, close to the line
I was walking in a world with no time
You saw me there
You saw me there

So I found a symmetry within this divinity
An equal to counter the grim
It arrives unexpected and leaves me affected
And lights up the nights that are dim
It's in your face, it's in your words
It's you, when you're holding my hand

So I'll take as a gift all these words that have lifted me
Out of this unworldly haze
Cause they won't let me lose
When I'm starting to bruise and they'll walk
Me right out of this maze

I'll hear your voice, I'll hear your words
And you'll light me up again.
