그런 아침들이 있지
온 몸이 마비된 듯 움직일 수 없고
정신은 멀쩡한데 눈이 떠지지 않고
마치 거대한 무언가가 무너져 폐를 짓누르고 있는 것처럼
숨조차 쉴 수가 없는
제발 이번엔 누군가 날 좀 구해달라고 간절히 빌지만
그댈 깨우는 건 또다시 미친 듯 화가 나서
이번엔 그냥 넘어가지 않을 거라 소리지르는 엄마의 전화
그럼 그댄 알았다고, 당신이 섬기는 악마한테 날 넘기라고
하지만 당신 영혼은 결코 신께 구원받지 못할 거라고 퍼붓곤
전화를 끊어버리지만
이내 너무 심했나 싶어 불편해진 마음으로
다시 침대 속으로 기어들어가 지난 날의 꿈을 꾸지
거리낌 없이 온 마음을 활짝 열고
모든 병약한 것들과 모든 죽어가는 것들을 
있는 그대로의 모습으로 사랑하던 시절
그대 앞에 닥친 일들에 빌어먹게 진지하던 시절
친구들과 함께 노래를 부르고
그들 모두가 그대를 사랑하던
그 시절의 꿈을

그러나 나락은 언제나 막강하고
좋은 것들은 빌어먹도록 싸구려인 주제에
몇 주 동안이나 그대 곁을 찾지 않고 애를 태우지, 하지만

그댄 싸워낼 거고, 이겨낼 거야
필요하다면 그런 척이라도 할 거야
일터에선 웃는 얼굴로 모두를 대할 수 있게 될 거야
그댄 나아질 거고, 그댄 더 현명해질 거야
마침내 더욱 성숙해질 거고
더 나은 딸이, 더 나은 아들이 될 거야
진정 좋은 친구가 될 거야
그댄 기민하고, 주의 깊고, 상처를 받더라도 낙관하며
모든 벗들을 웃음으로 포용하고
진심으로 귀 기울이고, 정직하고, 용감하며, 근사하고, 아름다운 사람이 될 거야
그댄, 행복해질 거야

그댈 구하러 함선이 오고 있는지도 몰라
그댄 연약하지만
결코 울부짖으며 깊은 어둠 속으로 숨어들지 않을 거야
그대의 함선이 마침내 도착할 때까진
약한 그대, 결코 항복하지 않을 거야
내가 알아, 그댄 싸워낼 거야
모든 것에 맞서 이겨낼 사람이야, 그댄



Sometimes in the morning I am petrified and can't move 
Awake but cannot open my eyes 
And the weight is crushing down on my lungs 
I know I can't breathe 
And I hope someone will help me this time 
And your mother's still calling you insane and high
Swearing it's different this time 
And you tell her you give in to the demons that possess her 
And that God never blessed her insides 
Then you hang up the phone 
And feel badly for upsetting things 
Crawl back into bed to dream of a time 
When your heart was open wide 
And you loved things just because 
Like the sick and the dying 
And sometimes when you're on 
You're really fucking on 
And your friends they sing along 
And they love you 
But the lows are so extreme 
That the good seems fucking cheap 
And it teases you for weeks in its absence 
But you'll fight and you'll make it through 
You'll fake it if you have to 
And you'll show up for work with a smile 
And you'll be better 
And you'll be smarter 
And more grown up 
And a better daughter or son 
And a real good friend 
And you'll be awake 
You'll be alert 
You'll be positive though it hurts 
And you'll laugh and embrace all your friends 
And you'll be a real good listener 
You'll be honest 
You'll be brave 
You'll be handsome and you'll be beautiful 
You'll be happy 

Your ship may be coming in 
You're weak but not giving in 
To the cries and the wails of the valley below 
And your ship may be coming in 
You're weak but not giving in 
And you'll fight it 
You'll go out fighting all of them
