Written in 2002 as the second attempt to write a song to cheer up a friend. The first was a very good song, but not so much with the cheering up of anyone. This song was sponsored by the most wonderful Sean Murphy and Marci DeLeon.


In the darkness where you’re hiding
Let me be your guiding star
Let my smiles and my laughter
Lift you up and take you far

CHORUS: Step out of the shadows
Step into your dreams
Look into tomorrow
Hear the nightingale sing

I can hear the aching silence
I can see how deep you’ve gone
As the darkness folds around you
Pulling you forever on

Let my song pierce through the silence
Let its warmth cut through the cold
Let its joy drive back the anguish
Let your battered wings unfold

In the stillness and the silence
Let me be the breath of air
That lifts you up and sets you soaring
Ever higher if you dare

And as the morning light awakens
You remember how to sing
Let the shadows fall behind you
As you race the sun with windswept wings
Hear the nightingale sing
Hear the nightingale sing
