"Writing songs is super intimate. It's a bit like getting naked"~ Gwen Stefani

I break away from the old feelings
My heart has been pierced with a knife
I try to forget the old dealings
Try to forget my old life

Darkness has been abiding
In my soul it tries to conquer
Under my bed I’ve been hiding
From lightning and thunder

I never became afraid
Before all the pain
Your hand made a raid
On my heart and printed a stain

I’ve never felt so lost
Then the past year
Never realized the cost
Never been full of so much fear

I tried to reach out my hand
To weak I was to stay steady
No longer the days of warm sand
Or in the sun looking so pretty

I’ve become a wreck
No one seems to care
I’m only a little fleck
Messing up their

Plan to take control
Break me down
Make me no longer full
Of the beauty, they have mown

The grasses of my soul
Trying to take a sample
It’s been so cold
I’m not the right example

They say I lie
I never did before
Neither did I cry
Or fall onto the floor

Darkness has consumed me
And tried to take
The eyes that see
Then finally I wake

To find that I am free

Darkness and pain are hard to overcome, all you have to do is let yourself wake up. Sometimes that can be very hard. I wrote this for myself but also for everyone out there who suffers and I think that's everyone. Please comment and let me know what you think!
