I Know Why

I know why you hide,

and always withdraw,

and refuse to socialize

I know why

 

some say you\'re traumatized

others think you\'re sad

some say evil lurks within 

some, that you\'ve gone mad

 

but I know why

 

I know, that deep inside,

with all your might,

you\'re holding back

the most beautiful light

 

a brilliance so great

it would blind the sun

and all the world

would come undone

 

so you keep the secret

and bear the pain,

you burn inside

and take the blame

 

may God have mercy

unbind the light

it\'s your purpose 

it\'s your right

 

shut their eyes

and even mine

It\'s your turn

to shine
