[It comes to me in times of great despair]

It comes to me in times of great despair,
When life’s cold hands have clenched me in the night;
I cannot shake the sentiment that’s there,
And through it all I’ve given up the fight.

There was a time when oceans made of blue
Would make me smile and dream of things to be;
We’d laugh at omens claiming to be true,
And I thought that was good enough for me.

The tides have turned and now I’m not so sure­—
The haze has lifted off and now it’s clear;
That what I’d seen before was just a blur,
A crazy image born and built on fear.

The moon has mystic powers I’ll admit—
But on the sunlit cliff I’d rather sit.
