I'm wide awake
It's the middle of the night
I'm standing in the dark,
Waiting up for the light
And here I'll remain
Til the sun is in the sky
Standing in the dark
Waiting up for the light.

There is love,
There is peace in this world
So take it back
Say it's not what you thought

Grab a hold
Take these melodies
With your hands
Write a song to sing.

Isn't such a bad, bad world
And I say

These times are strange
I can feel it in the night
I'm standing in the dark
Holding up for the light
And here I'll remain
Til the great sun shines
Standing in the dark
Waiting up for the light

    Song MeaningWell, always hard being the first to comment, but I think this song is pretty easy. It's about someone worrying about daily life and it's so bad that he can't even sleep, but in the daily life there are little things that make it worthwhile (write a song to sing), and he realizes it isn't such a bad, bad, world, and someone who sort of convinced him into thinking it was, and he's now trying to tell them, you were wrong, it isn't such a bad, bad, world.
    Any other ideas?
