How Dark Is Gone

Written by

Harper / Yates / Mobley

Original Artist

Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals

aren't you glad you can still feel pain
aren't you glad you still feel anything
aren't you glad you can still complain
aren't you glad you're still the same
make you run through life when you could walk
make you scream when you wanted to talk

would you rather wave a flag
or wave goodbye
would you rather flood your heart
or dare let them see you cry
rather fight a war or live in fear
aren't you glad to be here

you can't know till you do
by then lesser thieves have spoken for you
with their quiet demands
in a whispered hush
you may have to lie
when the truth hurts too much

as life traces the lines in our faces
i won't look away
some die too young
some live too long
how dark is gone
