Lantern In The Night lyrics

I saw the end.
I saw the ending at the start.
Though I never said a word aloud,
I knew it in my heart.

All I ever wanted
was to make the smiles real.
I felt that was worth the hurt
and time it took to heal.

Though I knew I never could,
I swore I’d make it through.
If you repeat ideas enough,
it doesn’t make them true.

I tried
to force my circles into squares
and I denied
that what I wanted wasn’t there.
I looked for light
In corners darker than the dark side of the moon.
But still, in spite of you
I shine
Like a lantern in the night.
Nowhere to hide.
You’ve never seen me shine so bright
as I do tonight.

You clipped my wings and cut my claws.
I let it happen then.
I didn’t know what I was missing
until they grew again.

So though it hurt, and oh it hurt,
I tore myself away.
Sometimes you have to bleed before you heal enough
to keep the dark at bay.

I could see so well in the night
that I felt blinded by the sun.
But easy doesn’t make it right.
Sometimes it’s better just to run.

I tried
to force my circles into squares
and I denied
that what I wanted wasn’t there.
I looked for light
In corners darker than the dark side of the moon.
But still, in spite of you
I shine
Like a lantern in the night.
Nowhere to hide.
You’ve never seen me shine so bright
as I do tonight.

I’m free. I fly. I live. I shine.
I tried
to force my circles into squares
and I denied
that what I wanted wasn’t there.
I looked for light
In corners darker than the dark side of the moon.
But still, in spite of you
I shine.
