01. Into the Light

Into the Light
by Matthew West



 

I was stranded in shadows / It was all I ever knew / I was pushed down in the darkness / Lost all hope of breaking through / Thereís no life inside that prison / No windows, just these walls and chains / But love was on a mission / And I never will forget the day / You woke my heart up / You made me brave / You lifted my eyes / And called me by my name / Come on, come on out of the darkness / Come on, come on out of the night / No more, no more living in the shadows now / Step into the light / When I was shaky, You were steady / Like a lighthouse off the coast / Always
willing, always ready / To lead this wandering heart back home / And now I still got bruises / And scars donít lie / But theyíre the proof that / I got a second chance at life / Thereís a break in the clouds / The sunís raining down / Itís calling me out / This is my hallelujah / Night turns to day / All my fear melts away / I lift my hands up and say / This is my hallelujah / Come on, come on no looking back now / Come on, come on run for your life / No more, no more living in the shadows now / Step into the light

Behind the Song:
ON A DARK, STORMY NIGHT IN ILLINOIS, ALICE GATHERED A FEW BELONGINGS, PACKED HER 2 YOUNG CHILDREN IN THE CAR AND FINALLY ESCAPED HER ABUSIVE HUSBAND. SHE WROTE ABOUT THAT JOURNEY OUT OF THE DARKNESS THAT HELD HER PRISONER FOR SO LONG. SADLY, I READ TOO MANY STORIES ABOUT THIS TOPIC. - Matthew West
