Darker Side of the Moon Lyrics

When you see me standing
I'm here 'cause I didn't walk alone
There are pieces of you landing, waiting here
Somehow to make me whole'Cause you, you're the darker side of the moon
Always in the shadow
Leaving me to shine, shine, shine
You're the one who carried me through
Held me in the sky
Leaving me to shine, shineAnytime you pushed me
When it felt like too much, I know it made me grow
Looking from a distance at a crescent moon
Who would really know, that youYou're the darker side of the moon
Always in the shadow
Leaving me to shine, shine, shine
You're the one who carried me through
Held me in the sky
Leaving me to shineFrom the stretches of the world
And more perspective than I wished for
You taught me that there is more than what a pleasant chance
You never questioned worth
You made a path wherever I'd go
Giving far more than I asked for
Oh, youDarker side of the moon, always in the shadow
Shine, shine, shine
You're the darker side of the moon, always in the shadow
Shine, shine shine
You're the one who carries me through
You held me in the sky
Leaving me to shine, shine, shine
