How Can I

How can I ever know you?
When I’m afraid of myself
How can I hope to hold you?
When I am trembling as well

How can I ever love you?
When I don’t know what it means
How can I hope to heal you?
When I’m distressed at the seams

But in the depth of the night
Your light is strong
And I can see it so clear
I’m not alone
And though I’m shaking inside
You take me on
Until I’m safe by your side
The other side of…

How can I speak the truth dear?
When they teach you to lie
How can I hold my faith dear?
When there’s so much to deny

How can I breathe in deeply?
When my chest is so tight
How can I smile sweetly?
When there’s more wrong than right

But in the depth of the night
Your light is strong
And I can see it so clear
I’m not alone

And though I’m breaking inside
You take me on
Until I’m safe by your side
The other side of

And though I’m breaking inside
You take me on
Until I’m safe by your side
The other side of fear
The other side of fear
The other side of...
