One By One

night_street

we all have our reasons
we turn our backs to time
and reality for moments
we tremble
and we shine

we all have a season
each with our own kind
to find a place in the sun
we shiver
and we shine

autumn has its leaves
spring its rain
summer its wings
winter its chains
we all have our reasons
we hold so tight to pain
if only for a moment
and we shine …

we all have our reasons
but no one sees mine
or the hand that i hold
that bleeds
and I shine

and one by one
the stars go out
a little darker now
a little doubt
about the reason
i turned my back to the light
i wish i may
i wish i might
be the last to shine tonight
