Shut Up in the Dark


All my life, I never knew
The world was to be savored,
So older and taller I grew,
And this world was never favored.

All my life, I never found
The world as oh-so-great;
Never listened to the sound
And let fate just be fate.

All my life, I never heard
The calling of the lark.
Of course my ears heard not a word.
I was shut up in the dark.
