Hilltop Hoods

Hilltop Hoods - Through The Dark

rate me

The very day you were born, your light shone bold in the dark

The doctor said you had a hole in your heart

I just knew that you were making room for a whole lot of heart

And loved you from that day until your soul would depart

You took your first breath upon my chest

I built you a good nest before I left

It wasn't that I never loved your mother

But two happy homes are better than one that suffered

Every regret in this life that I made

Have been tempered by the strength in your eyes everyday

I know that you never said that you'd like me to stay

Still I'm sorry I neglected you while I was away

You were eight when we headed to casualty

And no child should face their death or mortality

You taught me patience, strength and morality

And I'd burdened this weight instead of you happily

That night, you asked if you'd die from your sickness

And why had it chosen your life out of millions

You filled me with the pride I was missing

Cause grown men cry, that lack your type of resilience

Only when it's dark that the stars are bright

For your fight, you gonna harbour these scars for life

But you're a brave little soul, came in the cold

Like a fighter, hope you find the same flame when you're old

Fall asleep and lay with me

We'll search the night for shooting stars

If they can't take away your pain

I'll take your hand, walk through the dark

The dark

The dark

The dark

I wrote this while you slept in a hospital bed

Know this, your breath at the cost of my breath

I'd forgo this life, that you'd go on in my death

If you'd know what It’s like to live long and regret

So you could fight, you could shove, you could bleed and hurt

You could cry, you could love, and your creed will work

When your strides act dumb and you teethe your words

It'll take a wife to become your sky, sea and earth

But if these are things that you never see

With no god, just me, it'll set you free

And most others won't understand the hell in which you've been in

‘til they wrestle with the demon

But take heart to be brave, but first we fear

The same heart, the same pain, you persevere, will serve you

I know this world is of course unfair, and hurt you

But these virtues are yours to bear

I named you lionhearted the day you were born

They say the night is darkest before the dawn

I'll take your hand upon this path

If you can light a spark, then we can find some calm in a raging storm

Ain't nothing left to scare you see

So we can live life and cherish every breath we breathe

And no matter where you go, know we'll never leave

Cause even when we're gone, we're living in a memory

So live on, live on

Fall asleep and lay with me

We'll search the night for shooting stars

If they can't take away your pain

I'll take your hand, walk through the dark

Fall asleep and lay with me

We'll search the night for shooting stars

If they can't take away your pain

I'll take your hand, walk through the dark

The dark

The dark

The dark

And I'm sorry that I can't take your pain, or answer why

I lay awake through darker skies

I say your name, you cast a light

Like a flame on a starless night

And I, didn't know what was lost 'til you found me

Didn't know what was locked in, without keys

But we can walk across all these boundaries

You and me, nothing here to stop you, you're now free

So I wrote this to give you hope

For every good thing in life you live to know

They say cancer survivors are gifted though

Let me know if that isn't so
