“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

yes i figure that instead of looking cold

you could put a smile there

and the way i see it my my mind

it would be the best of all


or go ahead believing in the story

of the cloud that beat the sun

but you’ll get tired of saying “never”

and you’ll let a “maybe” fall


soon you’ll see as well as i

that the air is really warm

and you’ll be staring in the faces

that have come to cheer you on


or go ahead believing in the story

of the cloud that beat the sun

and just forget about the colors

of the one that should’ve won


like a snail do you wish it on your back

you were carrying your home?

only to abandon every thought

at the slightest hint of snow?


but go ahead believing in the story

of the cloud that beat the sun

you should know i’ll be behind you

when you find your time to run
