Where were you when the night lingered on
When safety had waned, and anxiety spawned?
Where were you when the embers grew flames
When the world grew so big that we all lost our names?
Where were you when I needed you most
When I was alone and transparent like a forsaken ghost?
Where were you then when I was so bitter and dark
When the torment inside me needed only a spark?
And where are you now as I'm saying this all
Would you be there to catch me if I happened to fall?
And when is it time to come end my remorse
To show up in armor on your white gilded horse?
And where would you go if I did not reply
Would you sit with the wolves howling sad at the sky?
And when would you know that it's time to move on
To stand up and leave in the night or at dawn?
Where would I go if you weren't my home
Would I unearth my roots and feel freedom to roam?
Where is the comfort, the love, and compassion
Would it be better off with a different reaction?
