Song lyrics written by © Olya Kenney
Music/Performance by Nolan Dooley

Title:
I wish that I fought for you...

Verse 1:
I wish that I fought for you
When your walk was unsteady, your voice was weak,
But I got to you too late
And I saw the tear run down your cheek

If only my fist could
Penetrate this enormous wall of time
I would've defended you
From every hurt and every crime

Chorus:
My heart is pitch black without your light
And I seek your touch. I seek your sight...
Under heavy cloud of remorse
And with every breath it's getting worse...

Verse 2:
When gravity pulled you down
I wish I was there to break the fall
I wish I could run to you
When you could not move and could not crawl

If only my shoulder was
Strong enough for you to lean upon
I would carry you through life
Since my love for you is never gone

Chorus:
My heart is pitch black without your light
And I seek your touch. I seek your sight...
Under heavy cloud of remorse
And with every breath it's getting worse...


Chorus:
My heart is pitch black without your light
And I seek your touch. I seek your sight...
Under heavy cloud of remorse
And with every breath it's getting worse...

Verse 4:
I see glimpses of you
In every good person I meet
Your words have given me strength
When I was in pain, when I was in need

Sheltered by you
Forever my essence is rebuilt
And I am in debt to you
For every promise that you fulfilled

Chorus:
My heart is pitch black without your light
And I seek your touch. I seek your sight...

Chorus:
My heart is pitch black without your light
And I seek your touch. I seek your sight...
Under heavy cloud of remorse
And with every breath it's getting worse...
