I Start To Understand

The loneliness lies sleeping - I see it in my dreams

Oh thatís the place I fear the most to be

For when it starts to waken - And sees me here alone

I know for sure that it will come for me

 

Iíve been afraid for oh so long to look inside and see

The sorrow growing there inside of me

And now I feel it weigh me down

Itís time to let it go and then be free

 

I must release all the tears within - Love is the season I fear

That is the reason Iím here again - I start to understand

 

I see the answer slowly - Reveal itself to me

From far beyond the shadows of my mind

I must move through the feelings - Oh buried in my soul

And not conceal the love thatís there inside

 

Iíve danced around the pain for all these years and now I see

That tears are shaped just like the candleís flame

Both are slowly burning there

Reminding me that I must do the same

 

I must release all the tears within - Love is the season I fear

That is the reason Iím here again - I start to understand

 

Light shining through the rain - Pouring within

Freedom lies through the pain - Now I begin

 

To see the way more clearly - The path that leads me there

I now begin the journey to be free

It used to seem so fearful - But now Iím not afraid

The only thing there stopping me was me

 

Iíve danced around the pain for all these years and now I see

That tears are shaped just like the candleís flame

Both are slowly burning there

Reminding me that I must do the same

 

I must release all the tears within - Love is the season I fear

That is the reason Iím here again - I start to understand
