The Light Inside
©2016 Brian Hazard (ASCAP)

Go on ahead
Don’t you wait for me
It’s too late for me
There’s no guarantee
How I’ll feel
There’s something wrong inside my brain
Something that I can’t contain
Wish I could explain

The radio
Argues with my inner voice
Nothing more than background noise
Funny what the mind enjoys
When it’s wild
Panic at the grocery store
Everything is a such a chore
What was it like before?

I pretend to hide
A light inside
But it’s just one more lie
Don’t give a damn about me
My eyes have dried
Mourning the light inside

I smile and say
Everything’s alright with me
So if you want to fight with me
If you want reality
Get in line
Stuck on every simple choice
Things that used to bring me joy
Now just broken toys

Can’t fall asleep
Can’t focus on TV
But it’s even worse for me
To let my mind run free
An empty man
With time on his hands

If there’s something I could do
To make things easier for you
Nothing’s too much
For someone I love
Yes I can still love
Yes I can still love.
