Lyrics as Poems of Life: ‘Ultraviolet (Light My Way)’

Sometimes I feel like I don’t know Sometimes I feel like checking out. I wanna get it wrong Can’t always be strong And love, it won’t be long. Oh, sugar, don’t you cry. Oh, child, wipe the tears from your eyes. You know I need you to be strong And the day it is dark,…
