When you’re blinded by the light
you never see the stars
waiting there for you

I could only see

the pieces of the world

That you lit up for me

Until I found the strength
to leave your blazing light-
To step into the dark
And wrestle down my fear
Of what I couldn’t see
Taking in a breathe
to anchor my resolve

Then I looked up…

A hundred million stars
were staring back at me
A whirling universe
You never let me see

Blinded by your light
Kept firmly in your sight
I never would have known
What waited here for me

I looked up-
A hundred million stars
Were staring back at me
Endless possibility
You never let me see
Blinded by your light
Til I stepped into the dark

And I looked up.
