Let Some Light

been trying to let some light
creep out and make its way to the world
I have so much more contained

been living with love a long long time
but keeping my face the way it hung before
I have so much more within

but it’s waiting underneath this mighty stone
that I dragged inside many years ago
I was young then, imagination wrapped in thorns
what light I had wished it was never born

for too long I’ve let myself
twist up in darkness all of the shine
as if happiness were shame

a halloween joke is what I’ll be
if I carry on dressing myself in illusions of tragedy
when there’s so much light within

but it’s waiting underneath this mighty stone
that I dragged inside many years ago
I was young then, imagination wrapped in thorns
what light I had wished it was never born

feeling sick of the dark, sick of this heavy cloak
got to undo the black, the pressure isn’t going away
I’ve been living with love, feeling so glowingly wonderful much of the time
the burden of this light must be exposed

been trying to let some light
creep out and make its way to the world
I have so much more contained

been living with love a long long time
but keeping my face the way it hung before
I have so much more within

but it’s waiting underneath this mighty stone
that I dragged inside many years ago
I was young then, imagination wrapped in thorns
what light I had wished it was never born
