Written as a theme song for one of my favorite larps! paranoidandcrotchety.com/games-lifeline.html

lyrics

The darkness, the silence
The fear that cuts into me
The danger, the promise
The desperate need to be free
And if I make it out alive I'll see you on the other side
Right now all we can do is just hold on

CHORUS:
There's a lifeline reaching through the blackest night
There's a lifeline waiting for your final flight
There's a lifeline stretching to the edge of dawn
There's a lifeline telling you to just hold on

I sat there, I waited
Just counting stars and marking time
A moment, my one chance
Step forward, reaching for the line
And if I make it out alive I'll see you on the other side
But there's no time to think it through, so just hold on

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
They say it's perilous out there
But baby I don't even care
Better to die trying to fly than to stay here on the ground

Sensation, elation
A chill that cuts me to the bone
No time for misgivings
I'm soaring out to the unknown
And if I make it out alive I'll see you on the other side
But now there's nothing else to do but just hold on

CHORUS

FINAL CHORUS:
There's a lifeline heading to another place
There's a lifeline flying through the dead of space
There's a lifeline coming that'll soon be gone
And it's coming for you, so just hold on
