Broken By Night

This was written 9 September 2012. I really like the contrast between the last line of the third section of each the verses, as well as the last line of each of the choruses.

frozen ancestral lands
phantom summer laughter

then the ice cracks
and light shines through

and the dark turns back
and light breaks through
a world broken by night

I'm watching the day break through
I'm watching the night break down
I'm watching the day break through
but everything isn't right
the world was broken by night

hopeful rebuilding starts
battered village regrows

then the dirt cracks
and clean peeks through

and the dirt turns back
and hope breaks through
a world healing by light

I'm watching the day break through
I'm watching the night break down
I'm watching the day break through
even if everything isn't right
our world is healing by light
