Story

Sneak Preview of "Darkness" from my upcoming CD

I've known people through the years who have suffered from depression. A darkness so overwhelming it has taken the life of one of my friends, and a family member.

I too have known this darkness. With the help of loved ones, I managed to make it to the other side.

This song is part of my "mission" to help others who are going through the same. That they might find comfort, hope, inspiration & strength through the power of music.

Lyrics

You’ve got to know the darkness before you know the light
You gotta get through the darkness, before you see the sunlight


Show the face I know, I know you wanna see

But I can’t always be the best, I know I wanna be
Open hearted moments, living in the now
See the walls around me watch them as they come down

Refrain:
I'm just a mad believer, walkin through the years
I'm just a mad believer following the tracks of my tears

Chorus:
You’ve got to know the darkness before you know the light
You gotta get through the darkness, before you see the sunlight

Holding on to memories pictures in a frame
Holding on to memories, fire & the rain
Broken hearted moments, you're lost in the dark
When the soul inside you, is waitin for a spark

Refrain:
I’m just a man believin, followin the years
I’m just a man believin, walking through the tracks of my tears

Chorus:
You’ve got to know the darkness before you know the light
You gotta get through the darkness, before you see the sunlight

Instrumental:

You’ve got to know the darkness before you know the light
You gotta get through the darkness, before you see the sunlight

You’ve got to know the darkness before you know the light
You gotta get through the darkness, before you see the sunlight

Sunlight
Sunlight
