lyrics

Paul & Tina Bergeron /Jay Clementi

When I shut down
I’m not trying to hurt you
I’m trying to shield you from
The dark side of my pain

Cuz it still runs wild
After all these years
Anger, hurt and bitterness
Is still burning through my veins

So baby sit down and take my hand
There’s some things about your man
That I don’t understand myself,
That’s why I’m asking for your help
I wanna be better for you, be the man I promised to
The one you thought you knew
Baby you’re my only light
And need you now, to help me carry the fight

I’ve tried on my own
But it left me feeling hopeless
But you put warmth in my heart
And it’s all coming in focus

Our love is strong enough
To fight these demons out of me
Your eyes are the mirror
To my soul baby let’s set it free

Baby sit down and take my hand
There’s some things about your man
That I don’t understand myself,
That’s why I’m asking for your help
I wanna be better for you be the man I promised to
The one you thought you knew
Baby you’re my only light
And need you now, to help me carry, carry the fight

Carry the fight, Carry the fight, Carry the fight
Carry the fight, Carry the fight

So baby sit down and take my hand
There’s some things about your man
That I don’t understand myself,
That’s why I’m asking for your help
I wanna be better for you, be the man I promised to
Baby the one you thought you knew
Baby you’re my only light
And need you now, to help carry
Baby won’t you help carry, carry the fight

Carry the fight Carry the fight Carry the fight
Carry the fight Carry the fight
