Soon I will escape
from this dark place I will emerge
it won’t be long now

I can’t wait
for the day to arrive
for the Dawn to break
soon they will arrive to rescue me

I struggle to hold on
there’s a weight that pulls me down
that is nothing to the wait I must endure
minute by minute, hour by hour
I hang on every word, and every word hangs me
