Lyrics of Darkness to Light

As I walked from winter into spring,
my mind was focused on just one thing,
The time I wasted and all the wrong choices,
mistakes of listening to all the wrong voices.

It was such a joy to be carefree
and to worry about nobody.
The friends I had, the friends I lost,
I had my fun, but, oh, the cost.

chorus
T'was the times,
oh, such a beautiful thing.
To walk from winter
into spring.
T'was the times
to forget the bitter and cold.
For we were young, without a care.
We would never be old.

The ones I had and held close to my heart
have all faded away and drifted apart.
But then time went by and turned spring to summer.
The day is long and bright, and not such a bummer.

It seems I've been given another chance.
This moment, I'll really try to enhance.
I'll be more aware of the circumstance
and try to see a good thing at first glance.

chorus
T'was the times,
oh, such a beautiful, beautiful thing,
to walk from winter
into spring.
T'was the times
to forget the bitter and cold.
For we were young, without a care.
And we would never be old.

Of all small things and every new face,
I will hold as a treasure, I cannot replace.
To listen to one's story, let's sit and talk,
or let's do it while we go for a walk.

These moments we will never have again,
You don't know it, but you are my friend.
Let's plant the seed and let it grow,
and watch it and see where it might go.

chorus
T'was the times,
such a beautiful, beautiful thing,
to walk from winter
into spring.
T'was the times
to forget the bitter and cold.
For we were young, without a care.
We would never be old.

As the summer turns into fall,
I sit all alone, think, and recall
all the memories I have, and the people I've known,
all the moments so warm and the kindness shown.

Then I realize I've never been alone
even though I've always been on my own.
The feeling is good, and oh, so right.
I've walked through the darkness into the light.

chorus
It's the time,
oh, such a beautiful , beautiful thing,
To walk from winter
into spring.
It's the time
to forget the bitter and the cold.
For we are young,
and we'll never be old.
