I wonder if it’s okay now
To poke my head from the fire
To bring myself in the open
To see all the world
Through the eyes of a liar
I wonder what I’ll be missin’
I wonder who out there cares
I bet can’t name a single face
Out in the crowd who knows I’m there

But I think I could try, I know I could try
I know I could fill that hole in your life
I think I’ve been seen, I just want to cry
The fear pulses though a million times

If I try
Maybe I’ll be fine this time
There’s a hundred reasons why I
Need this tonight
If I try
Maybe I’ll find a new light
Shinin’ from the darkness, maybe
I’ll see you

I wonder if we’re alone now
I wonder if we’re alive
I bet I’m just a pretender livin’ behind
Another man’s eyes
Life just throws out the answers
But we forget what we’ve asked
And in the corners of darkness
We’ll see the truth fades out so fast

But I think I could find, I know I could find
The words that tell, what lies behind
I think I’ve been seen, I can’t help but cry
The fear pulses through a million times

If I try
Maybe I’ll be fine this time
There’s a hundred reasons why I
Need this tonight
If I try
Maybe I’ll find a new light
Shinin’ from the darkness, maybe
I’ll see you

Yeah, shinin’ from the darkness, baby
I see you

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
