DARK BEFORE THE DAWN
(P.Kappa)

I was thinking that my life wasn't true
Every dream that I dreamt just fell through
To the bottom of the bottomless pit
Where the holes and the pegs just don't fit

A place where you learn how your heart breaks
When you're finding you feet and the earth quakes
If it's hopeless and you wish you weren't born
It's always darkest - before the dawn
Dark before the dawn

With the lights out I crawled on my knees
Trying to grasp but I just couldn't seize
Broken, battered and torn
It's always darkest - before the dawn
Dark before the dawn
Dark before the dawn
Dark -

When the dawn comes, she will bring the light
And the morning sky, restores my sight
The world is bright, the colours sing
Redemption comes, triumphant king

Dark
Dark before the dawn
Dark
Dark before the dawn
Dark before the dawn
