“Life in the Dark” – Single

My new single, “Life in the Dark” is available now for streaming/download.

This song was inspired by a visit to Mammoth Cave National Park and is part of my Trailsongs project.

Written, performed, and recorded by Kendall Bruns in Chicago. Mixed and mastered by Mike Montgomery at Candyland Recording Studio in Dayton, KY. 


Lyrics

Life in the dark
Life in the dark

[Verse 1]

What’s next? What now?
Can we get out of this somehow?

I’m scared, it’s so dark
Full of fear and desire and a wounded heart

Oh no, please don’t
Keep on repeating—it’s depleting my hope

That we can be
Returned to a place of decency

[Chorus]

Life in the dark
Life in the dark

Life in the dark
My Heart is hurting
Life in the dark
My Heart is hurting

[Verse 2]

I peer curiously
Into the abyss in front of me

I inch ahead cautiously
Wondering what might threaten me

My eyes yearn to see
Marvelous things I can’t believe

I’m here, this could be
A most awful, tragic, or incredible thing

[Chorus]

Life in the dark
Life in the dark

Life in the dark
My Heart is hurting
Life in the dark
My Heart is hurting

[Bridge]

Fear and desire
Can repress or inspire
Fear and desire
Can repress or inspire
Fear and desire
Can repress or inspire

[Verse 3]

What do you want to do?
Are we ready to prove
Our fear will not remove
Our collective choice to use
This moment to explore

Life in the dark
