It’s hollow in the darkness
Where thoughts and fears collide
The rapid beating of my heart
That tears me up inside

Can you hear my silent cries?
Soft whispers in the night
Do you hear me calling you?
When things don’t go just right

Don’t leave me here, alone,
Again, I cannot face the day
These battles, much too hard to win
My body, worn and frayed

Answers to my questions
Left lingering in air
I’m asking for your comfort, please!
Just let me know you’re there

A sign to reassure me
Everything will be alright
It’s hollow in this darkness
I need to see your light
