In the Dark with Divinity

I stay up and hope to regain
that wonder for life, that sacred little claim
Something breathes in me, oh the mystery
How it comes and it goes, makes me willing to believe

I never know how much, if any at all, will come to me
but I wait just the same, I’m waiting right now
I never know how much will be endowed

I hold on, the day’s been long
and another one awaits like an enemy
I hold on, my will is strong
to wallow in the dark with divinity

I stay up, the nights that I can
though I’m tired and dismayed by a life I didn’t plan
Something grieves in me, oh what could’ve been
how it comes and it goes, but it’s getting late for me

I never know how much, if any at all, will come to me
but I wait just the same, I’m waiting right now
I never know how much will be endowed

I hold on, the day’s been long
and another one awaits like an enemy
I hold on, my will is strong
to wallow in the dark with divinity

I’m feeling it now, it’s coming again
it’s greater tonight than it has ever been

What if I could feel this in the light of day
What if I could give this to people on their way
But these hours in the darkness seems my only way
until I learn to bring this god out of its cave
