I Bruise Easily

I HIDE MYSELF

I don’t know how to win this fight.
How can I step into the ring?
I hide myself. I dim my light,

Afraid that if I face the night,
I’ll break and forfeit everything.
I don’t know how to win this fight.

I want for strength; I lack the might.
Life calls me, taunts me, bullying.
I hide myself; I dim my light.

Alone with nothing left but fright
To hold my hand, I’m vanishing.
I don’t know how to win this fight.

Once I was brave; my eyes shone bright.
My voice, unused now, used to sing.
I hide myself; I dim my light.

I wish that I could make things right,
Not throw the match, stop punishing.
I don’t know how to win this fight.
I hide myself; I dim my light.
