FOR JANIE AND MARY. RECORDED AT KITTEN ROBOT STUDIOS IN LOS ANGELES, DECEMEBER 2016.

lyrics

There are times when at 2am I lie awake in bed
I’m staring at the ceiling, so much noise inside my head
The urge to run comes over me, sometimes i think I might
The darkness heavy on my chest
I am terrified, I must confess
But somehow hope I still possess
Light

The tears come crystalline and resting on a cheek so hot
Knees give way each time we are visiting your spot
Sometimes it feels as if there is an endless night
And we recall a smile wide
Despite the gloaming e’er outside
And always you will be our guide
Light

A message in a bottle dances upon the ocean blue
Though the storm outside is raging, the words inside remain true
And just as Aeolus so wicked fuels the soaring kite
The message that survives is love
It’s Carried on the winged dove
Arrives graceful from above
Light

One candle in the darkness is enough to blaze the trail
Each and every sunrise comes, even when words fail
And in the endless dusk our heart is where we find our sight
And screaming to the heavens high
No answers to the question why
We just know that love will never die
Light

Light
Find me now
Light
We will make it somehow
Light
I know that you are there
Sometimes in the darkness it is still so hard to bare
Oh light
Keep my heart true
show me everything that for brothers i can do
Oh light
