"Through The Dark" as written by Katie Tunstall and Martin Terefe....
As I walk away
I look over my shoulder
To see what I'm leaving behind

Pieces of puzzles
And
Wishes on eyelashes fail

Oh!
How do I show all the love
Inside my heart

Well this is all new
And I'm feeling my way through the dark

And I used to talk
With honest conviction
Of how I predicted my world
I'm gonna leave it to star gazers
Tell me what your telescope says

Oh what is in store for me now?
It's coming apart

I know that it's true
Cause I'm feeling my way through the dark

Try to find a light on somewhere
Try to find a light on somewhere
I'm finding I'm falling in love with the dark over here

Oh oh what do I know I don't care
Where I start

For my troubles are few
As I'm feeling my way through the dark
Through the dark
I'm feeling my way through the dark

    General CommentI can imagine Ketty Lester singing this. Fantastic song!

    Its about leaving a part of your life behind you and saying you cant predict the future.

    (the lyrics have a few errors in them)

    General CommentThis song...how can I even begin to describe what it means to me. Its one of those songs that we all have...one of those songs that the first time you hear it, it just speaks to you, as if you've just been waiting your whole life to hear it.

    What does it mean to me? It means feeling sorrow. Sorrow that occurs because as much as you loved someone, or something, you're leaving it behind. And now, without it or them - your blind, just feeling your way through the dark until you can see on your own again. You thought you had it down pat. but now you realize you don't know anything, so your going to leave it to stargazers since you figure they can figure it out better than you, for all you know.

    And you can't find light anywhere, without that thing or person, everything is darkness. You left because its what was best to do, but you didn't leave without your wounds. And just before you leave them behind forever, you can't help but take one last look over your shoulder, to see what your leaving behind.

    Thats what that song means.

    General Comment'Of how I predicted my world,
    I'm gonna leave it to star gazers, tell me what your telescope says' --> corrected lyrics.

    Those are my favourite lyrics in the song!

    The song is definitly about leaving a part of your life and looking forward, without trying to predict what will happen for you. She doesn't know what's gonna happen (feeling my way through the dark) . At first she wants to know what the future holds (trying to find a light on somewhere) but then she realises it's just better to take things as they come and see what will happen (I'm finding I've fallen in love with the dark).

    General CommentI love this song, esspecially since I just graduated from High School and I am moving onto college now. It seems that Im leaving a large part of my life behind. I also like how this kind of ties into the Album title, Eye To The Telescope. Its a great song...

    General CommentOk honestly, the person who posted these lyrics has to be straight retarded. "of how i predicted my word
    i'm gonna leave it to star gases
    tell me what you tell scope says
    oh what is in sotoled for me now?
    it's comming apart"

    Kay...whatever. This song has gotta be about anyone who's entering a new phase in their life, whether it's coming of age or another emotional/mental transition. You're trying to find a sense of balance, truth, or stability--the "light"--but the dark is part of the process and the growth. Time and possibly painful experirence -- or feeling your way through the dark, is what it takes to really make that transition and grow as a result.

    General Commentok..i think instead of:
    of how i predicted my word
    i'm gonna leave it to star gases
    tell me what you tell scope says

    how i predicted my world
    i'm gonna leave it to star gazers
    tell me what your telescope says.
    ...
    what is in store for me now
    ...falling in love with the dark over here
    ...for my troubles are few

    General Commentand this song for me, is about a place called lily dale. it's a spiritualist community and so ooooooo psychics! but anyways...i love that place, and this song just describes what it is so well i just tell people to listen to it.
