As Bad As It Gets

from Shining My Flashlight on the Moon

This is the darkest hour
of your longest night
you've never been this powerless
or prayed this hard for light
wish there was something I could do
to pull you through
but the only who can handle this now
is you

This is as bad as it gets
if you can make it through this
I'm willing to bet
that you will make it through anything
the world will throw your way
this is as low as you've ever been
if you can reach deep down
tap the power within
I know that you will find the strength
to make it through this day

This is the coldest night
of your bleakest year
it's hard to understand
all the forces that have brought you here
between the anger and pain
amid the losses and gains
there's a space
if you can find it
you will rise again

This is as bad as it gets
if you can make it through this
I'm willing to bet
that you will make it through anything
the world will throw your way
this is as low as you'll ever be
if you can stop for a minute
and listen to me
I know that you will find the strength
to make it through
this day

Nothing in your life has prepared you
for such a troubled time
but you're not one to give up
or give in
when your life
is on the line

This is as bad as it gets
if you can make it through this
I'm willing to bet
that you will make it through anything
the world will throw your way
this is as low as she goes
if you can reach deep down
tap the power that flows within
I know that you will find the strength
to make it through this day
and then I know
you will be OK
you'll be alright
don't give up the fight
