I am the song

Where, where do I belong?
Am I a line, lost from a song?
Who, who will love me now?
Is there a life I must live somehow?
As your tears of comfort trace ev’ry scar I bear,
Ev’ry wound I wear, I am found.
I see where I belong.
I am the words, I am the song.
 
Why, why am I so weak?
Is there a path I must now seek?
When, when we are apart
There is an ache deep within my heart.
As your tears so gently kiss each scar I bear,
Ev’ry wound I wear, I’m known.
I know where I belong.
I am the words, I am the song.
 
Will you shine in my night?
Hold my shield as I fight?
Will you stand by my side?
When I’m afraid, will you be where I hide?
 
Will you dry all my tears?
Take away all my fears?
Will you hold me and say,
‘You are the sun that brightens up my day’?
 
When, when will I be strong?
Am I a dream hidden in a song?
As your tears caress each line of the scars I wear,
Ev’ry wound I bear, I’m alive.
You’re where I belong.
I am the words, I am the song.
 
 
 
Will you shine in my night?
Hold my shield as I fight?
Will you stand by my side?
When I’m afraid, will you be where I hide?
 
Will you dry all my tears?
Take away all my fears?
Will you hold me and say,
‘You are the sun that brightens up my day’?
 
Listen to my heartbeat’s rhythm where our hearts meet.
I am the song.
 
How you shine in my night,
Hold my shield as I fight.
Always there by my side.
When I’m afraid, it’s you where I can hide.
 
Now you dry all my tears,
Take away all my fears.
You just hold me and say,
‘You are the sun that brightens up my day.’
You, you brighten up my day.
