I've seen the light that emanates from you,
and it makes me feel proud,
a voice of reason above the muffling crowds.
Such will to live and you've got so much to give,
long lost sincerity.
Lost in a world that's been scorched to black.
Lost in myself until I finally find.
A guide in you, and gratitude is mine,
I admire the way you shine.
Stare down the day from which others shield their eyes,
with complete clarity,
and no trace of apathy.
So positive, and your heart you freely give,
long lost vivacity.
Lost in a world that's been scorched to black.
Lost in myself until I finally find.
A guide in you, and gratitude is mine,
I admire the way you shine.

    General CommentI think it is just about someone who looks up to someone else because of their inner strength and beauty, and their refusal to give in to what other people want.

    General CommentWow only three entries. I think this is Davey's first love song. He doesn't mean it as real love, just that he could. But if you notice in the alum it kind of shows him falling in love, the relatoinship going sour (Three second notice.) then it ending. But thats just my opinoin. But it doesn't lokk like anybody cares about this song. So sad.-DRT-

    General CommentThis song is a beautiful display of finding someone different. When everyone else is cruel and hatefilled, this one person shines beautifully to Davey, giving him hope in dark times.
