What’s Within

I just jotted this down with the master Leonard Cohen’s voice in my head. Certainly has a gospel quality. Perhaps a tad trite, but sure what of it…

What’s Within

She said “Have you got a light?”
I said “I’ve got a light within me.”
When the days, they turn to night
I’ve got a light within me
When I lay down to sleep
When I bow my head to weep
When the hill, it seems too steep
I’ve got a light within me

She said “Have you got any fight?”
I said “I’ve got a fight within me.”
When the cold wind of time takes flight
I’ve got a fight within me
When I start to lose my grip
When my papier-mâché mask begins to slip
When Mother Nature cracks her whip
I’ve got a fight within me

See I’m twisting like the trees
Got thick mud up to my knees
The Blues engulfed me like a breeze
But there’s a spark
And there’s a surge
And there’s a sphere upon my crown

She said “Have you got a light?”
I said “I’ve got a light within me.”
She said “Have you got any fight?”
I said “I’ve got some fight left in me.”
I’ve got some fight left in me.
I’ve got some fight left in me.
