It's in those days when nothing seems right
when the world feels as if it's stumbling from a fight
I pray for you to wash the harm from my back
for my greatest fear in the world will be
that I won't be there to stop the world if it comes to take you
that I won't be there to stop the world

on the far end of the black there was light
and it was you

I wait in the black as you bathe yourself ni light
and pray for you to wash the harm from my back
my greatest fear in the world it will be
that I won't be there to stop the world if it comes to take you
that I won't be there to stop the world

on the far end of the black there was light
on the far end of the black there was light
and it was you

but you don't seem to care
your smile is your dare to those around you - beware

    General Comment"This song was inspired by the feeling that I was finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel. And though it felt good to get this song on paper, I felt at the time that it wasn't good enough to make it on a record and set it aside.

    Later though, after having a few friends tell me that they thought I should finish it, I made a quick demo of it (just acoustic guitar and vocal) and included it with the other demos I sent to the musicians who would be playing on the record. This is where the song turned a corner. You see with most of the songs on the record I had a very specific idea of what I wanted. But with this one I had none.......... they made it come to life. And when I listen to it now it sounds like a classic record to me. I was fortunate to have some amazing players on the record. Drummer Kenny Aronoff, Bass Player Chris Chaney and guitarists Phil X and Rusty Anderson."
