blind as a bat – lyrics and music by james michael & desmond child, performed by meat loaf

when i first heard this song, i instantly thought of him – he who have seen me through not only some of my most beautiful moments, but also some of the ugliest – and despite all this, he still accepts me for who i am, for everything i am. you’re awesomely special to me – i hope you know that.

i’m not afraid to show you who i am
and i am not ashamed of my life
though i’ve walked alone down this cold and soulless road
i’ve always felt your heat in my bones

with every step i rise and fall
with everything to gain i end up losing it all
when the darkness sets in
i scream out and your light sets me free

i’m not afraid of the past no more
i’m not afraid that i’m bad for good
i used to dance to the devil’s beat
if i could burst into hell i would

i’m not afraid to shed all my skin
i’m not afraid of the faults you see
i’m tearing down these walls right now
they’re comin’ down because i believe

your love is blind, blind as a bat
the way that you’re leading me home like that
your love is blind, blind as bat

i’m not afraid when they kick me down
i’m not afraid when i start to bleed
i’m not afraid if i live or die
i’m not afraid because i believe

and i wish that i could give you something in return
for the precious time you wasted on the tears i’ve never learnt
ror reaching out to help me cross the bridges that i burnt

and in the end you’ll finally see
that i’ve done everything i possibly can
i’d do it again because i know
you’re everything that i need

i’m not afraid of the the truth no more
i’m not afraid of the lies i hid
i’m not afraid of the past of my sins
because i paid for the wrongs i did

i’m not afraid of the things you know
i’m just a book for the world to read
my final words on the final page
will be your name because i believe

your heart is kind, mine’s painted black
the way me forgive me and just take me back
your love is blind, blind as bat
