Afraid Of The Dark Songtext
Every night, I try to run, but in vain
Anytime I stop, it all starts again
In the shadows I cast | Silhouettes of the past
Every day, I lie and say that I'm cured
Even though I know they're just empty words
If there's nowhere to turn | Am I destined to burn?

Who is | My salvation
When | No one's aware I'm at war

Chorus:

“Under this skin” | I feel a stranger, her sadness and her rage!
“Under this skin” | I hear her screaming and rattling her cage!
“Fight her! Fight it!” | I'm afraid of the dark!
“Fight her! Fight it!” | I'm afraid of the dark!
“Fight her! Fight it!” | I'm afraid of the dark inside me!

Every year, I pray that I'll be released
On my knees, I beg and plead for some peace
And the answer's the same:
I'm consumed by her flames

Who is | My salvation
When | No one's aware I'm at war

Chorus

4 x
(Give me the light that I need to defeat the dark!
Give me the light that I need to escape!)
Give me the light [2, 3]

If we | Cursed instead of | Blessed,
Help me | Lay us | Both to | Rest

Bridge

Chorus
