Underneath the echoes
Buried in the shadows
There you were.
Drawn into your mystery
I was just beginning
To see your ghost,
But you must know

I'll be here waiting
Hoping
Praying
That this light will guide you home.
When you're feeling lost
I'll leave my love
Hidden in the sun,
For when the darkness comes.

Now the door is open,
The world I knew is broken.
With no return.
Now my heart is not scared,
Just knowing that you're out there.
Watching me.
So believe

I'll be here waiting
Hoping
Praying
That this light will guide you home.
When you're feeling lost
I'll leave my love
Hidden in the sun,
For when the darkness comes.
For when the darkness comes.

Be here waiting
Hoping
Praying that, this light will guide you home
When you're feeling lost I'll my love
Hidden in the sun, for when the darkness comes
Hidden in the sun, for when the darkness comes

    I think this song inspires others to keep trying to keep hoping even if darkness comes it will pass. It always does eventually. To know that the sun will rise it, it will light up the sky. That you can go home even if you don't always choose the same path you always have that you can always take a different path home if you need to or want to in life. That there is a light no matter how small a flame & as long as there is even the smallest flame can burn the brightest light even in the darkest of rooms. This song truly is beautiful every word of it is simply beautiful & so lovely.
