We all have a dark star in some corner of our hearts.
A little star so dark, no light escapes its grasp.
We all carry scars from the hands we've been dealt.
Scars we know so well, and scars we've never felt.

She loved me for my dark star she said I never tried to hide.
I loved her for her dark star and all the tears she cried.
And even though it's over now and we've gone our separate ways,
We hold each other's dark stars the remainder of our days.

Fought against my dark star, fought it tooth and nail,
With artificial light from some imaginary Grail.
Little dark star sucked up all that light.
Little dark star spat me out into the night.

You can wrap it all in white, you can cover it with snow,
Your little dark star will only grow and grow.
You can soak it through with Jesus' blood to make it go away,
Your little dark star will come back at you some day.

So careful with your dark star and the people who will claim
To take it all away for you or deny its very name.
You don't have to name it or put it out for all to see
But denying your little dark star will never make you free.
