Spark by Jez Farmer

The darkness of depression holds my hand
Embracing me here where I cannot stand
And my eyes of tears cannot see the way
To lead me out into the light of day
There is no place that I can go, not now
For darkness holds me as if in a vow
All my hope is gone, all my hope is spent
And I’m longing for that long descent
I hear their voices like a tidal wave
I’m not convinced, I’m not worthy to save
With nothing to say my last breaths must come
The eternal darkness taking me home
But in my mind there is a spark of light
And in my heart she’s my reason to fight
