Darkness Illuminates the Stars

If you’ll take my hand,

I’ll take yours.

We’ll stumble and stand

and crawl on all fours.

But if you’ll be my light,

I’ll do right by you.

We’ll stay here and fight,

Brave and true.

Here in the black,

Smiles are rare.

We’ll make our own track,

Your burden I’ll share.
