If It Didn't Get Dark

Been a long time I've waited here 
Been a long road since it's been clear 
But I'm patient - I'm not wasting time
And the bumps and cracks- they're all mine

Once I saw a light shining near
Could it be the brightness that I fear 
Maybe darkness is safe for me 
Maybe shadows are where I should be

If it didn't get dark 
How could I dream 
If it didn't get dark 
Where would I be 
If it didn't get..............how could I catch a star

Didn't notice, I fell to my knees 
Didn't see it, no one left to please 
I'd forgotten to look up high 
'Cos I lost it - the spark in my eye

Been a long time, since you've been here 
Been a long road, of fighting back the tears
But I know that you're here with me 
When I look up I know where you will be

If it didn't get dark 
How could I dream 
If it didn't get dark 
Where would I be
If it didn't get..............how could I catch a star
