Matt Palmer – Used to the dark

I’m here, I’m here. It feels like something’s passed you by
You’re too hurried or too worried
To prioritize
What you want & dreamt of for your life
Think it’s too late for you to change,
but that’s all a lie
That voice inside
Is fear and it’s been steering you wrong
For way too long, say
[Chorus:]
Hey, you ain’t gotta be lonely
I know that you’re afraid,
Give it time, don’t you retreat into your mind
Hey, cuz you shine like a star
And we see who you are
Know your heart
Don’t you get too used to the dark
(x2)
I know you’re broken-hearted
But you gotta be strong
I know you’re thinking that you
Might’ve waited too long
But if you end up happy
Then it couldn’t be wrong
Could it? [Chorus:]
You ain’t gotta be lonely
I know that you’re afraid,
Give it time, don’t you retreat into your mind
Hey, cuz you shine like a star
And we see who you are
Know your heart
Don’t you get too used to the dark. You built a house
And padlocked every door
For your safety, boy but maybe
It’s time to cut the chord
And go it alone
Stop settling for less
What was patient’s now complacent
And you deserve the best. You can run, but can’t hide
From the light that’s inside
If you’re cold in the night
Don’t fear. Can’t live your life
In fear cuz it’s been steering you wrong
For way too long, say
[Chorus:]
Hey, you ain’t gotta be lonely
I know that you’re afraid,
Give it time, don’t you retreat into your mind
Hey, cuz you shine like a star
And we see who you are
Know your heart
Don’t you get too used to the dark
(x2)
I know you’re broken-hearted
But you gotta be strong
I know you’re thinking that you
Might’ve waited too long
But if you end up happy
Then it couldn’t be wrong
Could it? You can run, but can’t hide
From the light that’s inside
If you’re cold in the night
Don’t fear. (x2)
I know you’re broken-hearted
But you gotta be strong
I know you’re thinking that you
Might’ve waited too long
But if you end up happy
Then it couldn’t be wrong
Could it?
