What drew you out into the shadow,
Alone at the midnight hour?
That restless mind of yours that so few know,
Over you it has such power;
Calling you forth in the dead of the night,
By a song only you can hear,
Turning your soul in the absense of light,
Your sins before you loud and clear.
Often do you seek a moment's release
From the demons inside your mind,
Praying that one day your torments will cease,
And leave your broken heart behind.
Your body aches with a pain you never knew
Pulling you down onto your knees;
Suffering and exile all that is true,
Heartache in your eyes no one sees.
But I see. I saw it when I met you.
Perhaps it's you I'm meant to save,
Bringing you into a light that is new,
Out of the darkness of your cave.
Steady here I stand, not to leave your side,
To catch you when weary you fall,
Protect and shield you when you wish to hide,
And reveal to you the light I saw.
