lyrics

The Dark

There was a time when I was broken and confused
I didn't know what I didyesterday and I sure as hell didn't know what I would do
Come tomorrow --- or any othertime
Seemed I was faulty by design

When you hit bottom there'snowhere to go but up
Sometimes that's hard to seewithout a reason to – not – give – up
There almost was no happy endingto this song
But just in time you came along
Cause I – I was in the dark I had lost all my hope – To carry on
I had a gun in my mouth And it was there – Way too many times

But it was just the dark The dark before the dawn
Yeah you have to hold on It's always darkest 'fore the dawn

Now I know it's the thing thatwe hold dear
That makes us who we are and helps get us through thesefears
Every beat of our drums, everymoment we breathe
We take in more then we leave

I know I wouldn't be here if Ididn't get that chance
If you don't really know meyou'd think this was some song and dance
I can stand here doing what I do
And it's all because of you___

But it was just the dark The dark before the dawn
Yeah you have to hold on It's always darkest 'fore the dawn
