Song Description

A couple is wrestling through trying to find light at the end of the darkest year of their lives.

Lyrics

Dark Year of the Soul
Jason Paul Johnston ©2006

It was the dark year of the soul,
And it was all that I could do to hold onto
The falling night upon me - every single day
All the friends that I once told, all of my secrets and my woes had been erased, to the shadows now without a single trace.

Chorus:
And all the goals that we had set
All the people we had met
And everything that we had build up to now was gone
All our bridges now are burned
With all our lessons left unlearned
As we sit here with the lights off and the curtains drawn

In the months that it progressed
I became just less and less, and lost some will and my fight
As it stole my light
I'd take a happy birthday now, if I could walk instead of crawl
Across that line on - the calendar, and wish this year goodbye

Bridge:
This year -how are you this year?
When the sun's behind the clouds and yet the shadows are so clear...
This year - how are you this year?
Are you holding on to what you know or letting go my dear?

If there's a light there at the end,
I just wish someone would send a better map
Cause we are quite lost and just might wander off...
From the faith that we have known - at least the sunny side that we were shown - cause it's here in the dark year, that we find ourselves alone

Chorus

God if you are here - in our dark year - won't you come and light our way home....
