Can I?

In the frosty dusk of dawn

I hold my breath

In trepidation, poised upon the brink

Of one more dark and desperate day

I see a glimpse of gold beyond the clouds

And, at the edge of sight

A shadow sloftly slink away

Have I still the courage?

Can I still step bold into that spotlight?

Can I lift my head and take the blame?

Can I look you in the eye

And tell you what you should have known?

Can I forget and close the door?

Can I walk away once more?

 

In the frosty dusk of dawn

The phantoms fly

And waking, shellshocked, from a heady sea of dreams

To this young, as yet unsullied day

It takes a little while to catch my breath

And, as my heartbeat slows

I wish him well upon his way

For I still have the courage

I can still step bold into that spotlight

I can lift my head and take the blame

I can look you in the eye

And tell you what you should have known

I can forget and close the door

I can walk away once more

Watch me walk away once more
