Within the depths of the darkness I see, the darkness I can even feel
Here within this massive cavern, lie the feelings I hide within my heart
In this darkness that is so black and so thick, in a way you could be labled surreal
I can see the light, the one I had at the very start.

Oh, at the start of this unlit labyrinth, there remains the warm light of day
Just like all the others at that time the sun would shine it's warmth on me
But as time went on the hurt that was inside me, if held tightly I would have decayed
I his within myself, with the black of the heartbroken and forlorn, if I could only see.

Blinded by only what you can call self pity, not thinking that some others have it worse than me
Only wanting to hide as I felt sorry for myself and I cried a million tears
Me always wanting to make good past, present, and future, not understanding letting go was the key
I tried so hard to hide from myself, all my problems, all my fears.

So within these depths of darkness which I, myself created
To hide from others, me trying to block out reality
Here for so very long I would choose to hide, trying of myself the pain to rid
But being here now I know is a mistake, as now with my heart I begin to see.

I fight so hard through the thick dark jungle, fighting to reach toward the light I see
But it plays with me as I get closer to it, seems like the faster it moves
Running so fast, out of breath reaching out to the light I see
Seems within the darkness in the bottom there seem to be grooves.

In the dark the grooves I can't see causing me to stumble along the way
No lights as I reach out in the darkness praying," Someone hear my plea"
Someone see me reaching for them, come. find me without delay
But first you see I must find the person that resides within me.
