Afraid of the Dark

Don’t you throw it away

Baby I’ll make it okay

Stitch together the pieces

When your heart weakens

It’s okay to be afraid of the dark

But my dear you shine so bright

Don’t let the empty take your life

It’s okay to be afraid of the dark

You hold the sun in your eyes

And you’ll come to find

A place of your own, a home

It’s okay to be afraid of the dark

Wear your heart on my sleeve

Promise to never leave

I’ll keep you between my bones

Help soften every blow

It’s okay to be afraid of the dark

But my dear you shine so bright

Don’t let the empty take your life

It’s okay to be afraid of the dark

You hold the sun in your eyes

And you’ll come to find

A place of your own, a home

It’s okay to be afraid of the dark

When the glass cuts your feet and nothing seems right

When you lose your will to carry on

I’ll share the load you bear to make it light

You don’t have to be strong

It’s okay to be afraid of the dark

But my dear you shine so bright

Don’t let the empty take your life

It’s okay to be afraid of the dark

You hold the sun in your eyes

And you’ll come to find

A place of your own, a home

It’s okay to be afraid of the dark
