Notes: This song struck me the moment I listened to it. Oddly, I think it inspired quite the opposite of it's intent. But I've come to conclude that we will all take from someone else's words our own meaning regardless of their intent. That doesn't mean we disregard the author's ideas, just fit them to ourselves. If we couldn't do that--fit ourselves to someone else's words--what good are the words. I'm off topic. I'll just let my words speak for themselves--whatever you might make of them.
Spark of Love
I saw my future in the stars
long before you walked through the door
seeking to understand my scars.
Oh, how I wish I could give more,
but in leaving behind the shadows
I'm stepping out into pitch black--
stumbling to reach the light that grows
within you--trying not to look back
to the life alone I would build.
There's comfort in the loneliness;
wishes and desires unfulfilled,
but an odd comfort nonetheless.
Now I find myself reaching out,
longing to find you in the dark.
While I fight back the fear and doubt,
I cling to the hope your love might spark.
