Darkness & Light

Lyrics & Music by Shannon Marie Burandt
Written on 01/10/2020 in Carol Stream, Illinois

He never asked and it was not his wish
But I took on his darkness as my own
Heaviness hidden behind laughter
I wanted to lighten that heavy load

But it’s time to release that energy, it was never my fight
Time to let go of the darkness and reclaim my light

There’s beauty in my empathy
But it dimmed my light and I was lost
I took on all of him and that’s okay
My heart never cared about cost

But it’s time to release that energy, it was never my fight
Time to let go of the darkness and reclaim my light

Only good for him when I wasn’t close
Only good for him when I was me
But once I got lost in the shadow
Through my lenses of light I couldn’t see

So it’s time to release that energy, it was never my fight
Time to let go of the darkness and reclaim my light

Time to let go of that energy, it was never my fight
Time to let go of the darkness and reclaim my light
