Turn the Dark Inside to Light

After Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters by Elton John

 

And now I know

“She’s a Godsend” are not just pretty words to say

I thought I knew

But then I lost my faith in the suburbs and cities

 

Until your dreams are trashed along with your truth

You stand at the edge while people run you through

Now I thank the Lord there’s people out there that do

I thank the Lord there’s people out there that do

 

They’re Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters

Investment bankers, doctors, lawyers

Turned around, their goodness failing to do right

For unless they see God’s eyes

But they can’t and that is why

They know not if it’s dark outside or light

 

This pathway’s got

It’s got a lot of songs to sing

Listen to the tunes and you might just join in

You start your way alone

But we are all one, until you find that one it’s all self-pity

 

Your way’s your way to open up your crown,

Then open your eyes, God’s love is all around

And I thank the Lord for the people I have found

I thank the Lord for the people I have found

 

They’re Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters

Investment bankers, doctors, lawyers

Turned around, their goodness failing to do right

For unless they see God’s eyes

But they haven’t and that is why

Just a glance can turn the dark inside to light

Just a glimpse can turn the dark inside to light
