Darkness and Light

When there was light
The world was only green
And when there was light
Joy was all that was seen

But as we approached the mountain
The light, it disappeared
And as we approached the mountain
The darkness was all we feared

The light, it did return
A blazing firey red
And the light, it did return
Filling our souls with dread

Alone in the darkness
We wished to be away far
Alone in the darkness
We saw but a single star

Glittering high above
It was the only light
Glittering high above
It banished the fearsome night

Where there was darkness
Soon there was light
Where there was darkness
There was a fight

The People of the World
Would not let the light die
And the People of the World
Would fight, they would try

We were alone in the darkness
But we would fight alone in shadow
we would fight and we would try
We were alone in the darkness
We would fight and we would cry
And in fighting hard
We kept the single star burning bright
And bright it burned all through the depth of night
And the darkness died
For we fought, we tried
