Looking at the world through a stained glass window
Waiting for that window to break
the more things that get thrown at me
The more i realize i can take
I've had my share of misery in my time
I've been beaten down quite a bit
I've spent most of my time lost
After a while you learn to just live with it

Things look dark now,
But damn, don't they always?
It's so dark
What can i do but fear
When it's darkest
Is truely a chance to shine
Maybe someday
I can see clear

Looking at the world through a stained glass window
Waiting for the stains to fall
Hoping someday i can see clearly
Or even see at all
Everyday i wake up i feel i'm a failure
In just about every way
Maybe someday i can walk with pride
But that day is not today

Things look dark now,
But damn, don't they always?
It's so dark
What can i do but fear
When it's darkest
Is truely a chance to shine
Maybe someday
I can see clear

Anything perfect can't be real
The beds are made but there's no sheets on
No truer words have ever been said
And when this all this gone
Maybe we can all see
Things aren't always as them seem
Both the bad and the good
What is seen is not what is to be

Looking at the world though a stained glass window
The window's finally starting to clear
I feel i can finally move on now
And let some hope start to appear
My life has changed so much
I have a reason to be strong
Maybe happiness can know me now
I hope it doesn't wait long

Things look dark now,
But damn, don't they always?
But i think maybe
I can finally see some light
When it's darkest
Is truely a chance to shine
Maybe someday
It will be my turn to shine

Things look dark now,
But damn, don't they always?
But now i know
I don't need to hold on to fear
When it's darkest
Is truely a chance to shine
Maybe someday
I can see clear

The following comments are for "Seeing Clear"
by E.G. Evans

simply brilliant.
These are fantastic lyrics. I really hope the music does them justice.

You've got everything spot on - the words have a strong flowing rhythm, there are some really powerful and memorable lines, and the message behind the words is interesting too (though not entirely clear on first reading).

In short: This is great. I'd love to hear what it sounds like.

Score: an easy 9/10.
