You don't really see
Just how far down you've been
Until you're looking back
And it's quite some time ago

You don't really know
When you hit that low
Until you're looking back
And it's been made clear for you

And when you fist see
It's all so crystal clear
And you can't understand
How you stood in the dark
So long

When you see what others see
When you see how you have been
You get shocked
So deeply

And it hurts to realize
All you used to see
- were lies
That you made for yourself
In your own little world

But now it is gone
Now you can look upon the light
You don't need to hurt
Anymore

You don't need this darkness
You don't need this starless night
What you really need
Is to start the fight

Don't you look back
Don't you hurt no more
Don't you let anything get you down

You don't really see
Just how far down you've been
Until you're looking back
And it's quite some time ago

You don't really know
When you hit that low
Until you're looking back
And it's been made clear for you

And when you know
When you finally understand
You can't understand
How you stood in the dark so long
