Have you ever had thoughts that scare even you?
Have you ever had days when you feel extra blue?
Can you understand how I could feel this way?
Even though I have love now will it stay?
Can the dream filled nights and happy mornings
Continue this way without becoming boring?
My inner demons are my own worst enemy
And it keeps me from being who I wanna be
I've struggled for years to kill them off
But it hasn't worked, they still scoff
So I try to assume a semi-normal life
And try to be the best, most loving wife
My husband loves me and I love him
With his love my life will never be grim
The demons aren't gone, they're deep inside
But my heart and soul I bear with pride
For I made it through, despite the odds
Without help from medicine or Gods
To those out there, who've struggled to breathe
Or had to lie down or fall on your knees
Remember my words and know this much
Love can conquer all with it's gentle touch
