03. Safety in the Darkness

Apparitions Of Melody: The Dead Letters Edition
by Kids In The Way


Thereís nothing I can say to build these bridges back
Against the tides that washed them away
The life has left this room
Like a thousand fires gone black against the sky and scarlet moon
The smoke is in the air, choking out the sun
Itís rising in the air, I canít see

And I will find you there, somewhere in the dark
Buried in a place between dead and broken hearts
Thereís safety in the darkness, thereís safety in the dark

I have left these shores to face the tempest night
That stirs the stars against the waters with its storms
The sirens sing their song
Itís like a thousand hands that pull me down and break the course I travel on
The ocean fills my lungs, drowning out the sun
Itís rising in my lungs, I canít breathe

I close my eyes to see the light thatís leading me

Behind the Song:
"This song came from an amazing experience I had last year. I was at home, and I was going through some pretty rough trials in my personal life. It was probably one of the most oppressive times of my life. I really felt Satan and his hordes closing in on me. One night while I was sleeping, I was quickly awakened by fear. I just suddenly sat up in my bed and could feel the dark presence in my room. I immediately began praying and singing worship to God in the darkness of my room. After about an hour of pretty intense communication, a huge storm outside began and a few large bolts of lightning lit my room up like the sun. Suddenly, I felt the ultimate peace and safety that comes only from my God. At that moment I realized that in my darkest, scariest, loneliest times, thatís when God can be the closest and there is no reason to be afraid." - Dave Pelsue (Kids In The Way)
