“Before I Fade To Black”


Sometimes life hurts,
sometimes it rips at you,
sometimes it pulls you under
with one breath left.


Can you withstand the loss,
can you believe in it once again,
can you taste the likely bitterness
hoping sweetness surfaces.


Sacrifice is love's symphony,
sacrifice to save your lover's soul,
sacrifice to breathe again as one spirit
hope is the key to the closed door.


Dancing in the desolate dark,
dancing under the silvery moon,
dancing to the beat of one brave heart
hoping forever will embrace you.


Sometimes can you dance with me
under the light of a hopeful romance,
before my soul fades to black.
